So keep on trucking, keep being as open to your bagels as you have been, and hang that degree with pride!
Here at CMB, we know that our users are intelligent — you’re smart enough to have chosen us after all!
Joking aside, what you may not know is that we are indeed, statistically, a favorite among highly educated professionals.
Believe it or not, over 35% of our member base has a master’s degree or higher.
Compare that to the national average of people with master’s degrees or higher at 12%, you guys are a bunch of smarty pants!
Naturally, we were curious to see if having a graduate degree has any correlation to a member’s attractiveness and dating preferences.
We looked at over 20 million matches and here’s what we found. Sorry dudes, looks like your master’s degrees aren’t helping you out much in the dating world.Last place is kind of brutal, but you also deserve mad props for being the most open to LIKEing your bagels.It’s clear that more general degrees (i.e., Ph D, Master’s, Bachelor’s) are getting liked the least, which I think might have to do with their lack of specificity — you could be studying anything from dance to chemical engineering, so your area of study is probably more important to bagels than your level of degree.The good news is, we don’t think this is a sign that men don’t find high achieving women attractive — after all, female MDs were the second most liked. What’s interesting is that women holding only undergrad degrees were also the pickiest, followed again by MDs.I guess popular groups just have a sixth sense about these things and know they can be picky, but what fun is being picky? ) you guys are meeting a more diverse group of guys, so keep it up and don’t let the haters get you down.Realizing that the type of degree someone holds has a clear impact on their attractiveness, I was curious if there is a distinctive way people with different degrees present themselves on their profiles.
