C., and Philadelphia, to name a few—where the number of single women outnumbers single men by tens of thousands.

"So girls either have to lower their standards or look elsewhere for men," she says. This article originally incorrectly stated that Clarkson University at West Lafayette was the #3 best school to meet men.
