I am the mother of two sons who are both Princetonians. My older son had the good judgment and great fortune to marry a classmate of his, but he could have married anyone. My younger son is a junior and the universe of women he can marry is limitless. Men regularly marry women who are younger, less intelligent, less educated. It’s amazing how forgiving men can be about a woman’s lack of erudition, if she is exceptionally pretty. Smart women can’t (shouldn’t) marry men who aren’t at least their intellectual equal. As Princeton women, we have almost priced ourselves out of the market. Simply put, there is a very limited population of men who are as smart or smarter than we are. And I say again — you will never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who are worthy of you.
Dear mom, stop writing letters to the editor of the Princeton newspaper telling my classmates to date me. It’s creepy. — Signed, the younger son of whoever this this crazy woman is. (Side note: This letter was so popular it appears to have crashed the Daily Princetonian’s website. A cached copy is here.)
