“Only 7% of the adult population in the U.S. has an advanced degree,” says Rich Gosse, Chairman of The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization, “so it’s tough to meet friends on your own educational level. Single women with advanced degrees find it particularly difficult to find a romantic partner, because most men are intimidated by highly intelligent, well-educated women. That’s why we schedule this party. Single Professionals with advanced degrees deserve the opportunity to meet their peers. Studies have revealed that marriages are most likely to survive if both spouses share the same educational level.
“This year’s Advanced Degrees Party takes place during National Singles Week, September 16 – 22, 2012, the only week dedicated to the recognition of the special contributions of all singles,” says Mr. Gosse. “The first National Singles Week was in 1982. The week has been declared by official proclamation of Governors throughout America, and is listed in Chase's Calendar of Events, a directory of such events for the country.”
Rich Gosse is the author of eight books on dating, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to the Bay Area, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find (“This is a great book! Oprah Winfrey). His entertaining advice on dating has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox, MSNBC, NBC, Oprah, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Business Week, Cosmopolitan, Playboy, Playgirl, London Times, The Australian, New Zealand Herald, etc. Mr. Gosse is available to the news media for interviews by calling 415-479-3800.
