Link Harvest: Are Single Men 20-30 Really Bitter?

Came across this.

The attitude described reminds me vaguely of some things I saw at Princeton in the 1980s, which involved an interesting inversion phenomena. Princeton had a ratio at the time of close to 2:1 male female (it was pretty close to 1:1 if you excluded the engineering school). You had a collection of traditionally popular alpha males suddenly in fierce competition for the attentions of a much more limited pool of much choosier women. But this expression of bitterness in the 20-30 set is somewhat different and I have no idea how to assess whether the phenomena actually exists or not.
