This is a choice they make and results in them remaining single. Fine-Davis also goes on to conclude that another contributing factor is that women delay pursuing relationships as they assume that a change in relationship status may result in their time necessarily becoming divided into two roles-that of career woman and housewife.She believes that men find it easier to meet people and form relationships because they do not perceive a change in status to impact so severely on their time.I reject the assertion that the stigma attached to women going to the pub alone is a major contributing factor to highly educated women remaining single against their wishes.Women generally have a great friends network and whether those friends are single or attached, they will always support their single friend and play wingman whenever asked.

Some might say that I’m one of those women who put off men with my achievements, of which I’m really proud: I’ve published books on the theory of consciousness and the future of the brain.
I’ve authored some 200 research papers on Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and novel mechanisms underlying brain function.
But in our experience women don’t think about their time being divided but rather they do not prioritise dating in favour of pursuing career goals and educational achievements.
We often speak with women that will call us year after year and promise to carve out the time to join up and start dating but claim their lives are too busy with working 12 hour days and/or doing their thesis.
