Sex Ratio & Dating

The ratio of women to men on college campuses (60/40) is rising. The NYTimes recently published an excellent article that explains what consequences this has on dating. Here is an excerpt:

Needless to say, this puts guys in a position to play the field, and tends to mean that even the ones willing to make a commitment come with storied romantic histories. Rachel Sasser, a senior history major at the table, said that before she and her boyfriend started dating, he had “hooked up with a least five of my friends in my sorority — that I know of.”

What experiences have you had at UM that strengthen or contradict this point?
