There are a lot of things you do before going on a date with a guy. You check Facebook. You troll Twitter. You look at LinkedIn. You search Google. You may or may not attempt to find his MySpace. The list goes on despite our attempts to convince others how, “totally not psycho!” we are. And now there’s another list to consult before you agree to a night of endless small talk with a complete stranger—one that might actually help you check the “Get a Husband” box off your Grocery List of Life.
Here are the Top Ten Colleges with the Most and Least Datable Alumni:
- Colgate University
- Lehigh University
- University of Texas Austin
- University of Southern California
- McGill University
- University of Delaware
- San Francisco State University
- Boston University
- Northwestern University
- Williams College
- Babson College
- University of Chicago
- Rutgers University
- University of Washington
- Michigan State University
- SUNY, Binghamton (Binghamton University)
- University of California, Berkeley
- University of Pennsylvania
- Princeton University
- University of California, Santa Barbara
The list was compiled by a paid matchmaking service named, The Dating Ring, that collected 7,500 date feedback reports from 1,600 people over an 18-month period to see which college alumni served as the most enjoyable dates, according to TIME Magazine. “Datability” scores were calculated based on the percent of people who said that they would go on a second date and ranged from 17% (for Babson College) to 81% (for Colgate University), TIME reported.
All I know is, according to this list, I’m pretty fucking dateable—so if you want to come over, eat Pop Tart and peanut butter sandwiches with me, and occasionally have sex from time to time, hmu..
