    Two of the women are above average and one is average. Dumb, fat, unattractive women in Texas and many parts of the South have no problem with finding a man. I once heard about a study that found that men found women less attractive the more they knew. It was the opposite with women finding a mate. I've also heard of a couple of studies that found that women most often marry men who are less attractive than they are. But, didn't we already know that men and women have different criteria for their mates?

    I want to marry a smart woman.

    I don't think any of the women in the article qualify.

    Guess I'm stuck being single for now.

    One often hears that same whine ('whinge' to you Brits) around Silicon Valley. Women complain "where are all the men?" while they are surrounded by males. Meaning 'where are all the men that deserve me?'

    I think that traditionally, women 'married up'. They sought out men from a higher socio-economic class or men who were more successful than they were. (Protectors and providers.) And I think that perhaps unconsciously many of them still do that, even while they earn doctorates and become high corporate executives. Their boyfriends still need to be even higher on the pyramid, or the guys are perceived as being 'beneath me'. So as women ascend into a small elite, the pool of guys that they perceive as appropriate partners shrinks even faster.

    If women think that they are too clever to find a boyfriend, they probably should stop trying to prove it all the time. Don't try to put your companion down. Don't say false and sexist things like "The sense of accomplishment derived from learning is alien to most men". Men could say the same dismissive thing about women, that all they care about is clothes and relationships.

    Look for an appropriate guy in an appropriate place. Hang out in places where intellectuals gather. Take night classes. My sense is that some of Stanford's continuing education classes function as high-end meet-up spots for Silicon Valley singles with academic interests. The California Academy of Sciences has cocktail nights. Gallery openings are famous meet-up spots for the arty types and local galleries have started to synchronize them on the same night so that there are neighborhood wine-and-cheese art-crawls.
