ramblings of an aimless mind

Just another Wordpress.com weblog

Another advantage of doing a PhD…

This article from the New York times popped into my RSS reader yesterday and obviously I was intrigued.

It is about how in the modern world it is not unusual to find women who earn more than their boyfriends/husbands and how this fact changes the dynamics of their relationship. Most of the article is devoted to anecdotal experiences, but one line near the end offering advice to successful women is what caught my eye…

“go after men who draw their confidence from sources other than money, like academics and artists.”

So PhD students and future academics have just become more attractive to successful women? Maybe there is a silver lining to this job after all 😉
