There are many qualities that we look for in a romantic partner:
good looks, winsome personality, great assets even…

Yet, what about level of education?
59% of Americans
60% of men and…
58% of women
prefer someone with the same level education.

Only,
17% would prefer a more educated partner–and only
6% would prefer a less educated partner.

Considering that
61% of Americans age 25+
have completed some college
and that
45% of those 25+
have a bachelor’s or associate’s degree
and that the percentages fall off from there
in terms of educational attainment–
having some college, but not too much,
under one’s belt
seems to be the statistical sweet spot
for attracting a mate
based on similar educational levels.

Yet, as noted at the beginning of the article,
there are many factors
that attract us romantically
to one another.
