er women care more about their potential partner’s level of education than their male counterparts, an Australian study of online dating habits has found.

澳大利亚一项关于在线约会习惯的研究发现,年轻的女性更关注潜在男性伴侣的教育程度。

A Queensland University of Technology (QUT) study of the behaviour of more than 41,000 Australians on dating website RSVP has found that women are much more likely to specify that their prospective partners have an equivalent or higher level of education than they do, while men only make such stipulations at a comparable rate after they turn 40.

昆士兰科技大学对超过4.1万名澳大利亚人在约会网站上的行为进行研究,最终发现女性更倾向于要求她们潜在伴侣的教育水平要与己相当或比自己学历高,而男性只有在40岁之后才会有类似的想法。

According to the study, published in Psychological Science this week, women are roughly twice more likely than men to state an educational preference in their online dating profile.

根据本周发表在《心理科学》(Psychological Science)杂志上的这项研究,女性在网上约会时表示受教育偏好的可能性大约是男性的两倍。

Although women are more likely than men to express a preference across all age groups, between the ages of 18 and 40 women were more likely to prioritise certain levels of educational attainment.

尽管在所有的年龄组中,女性比男性更希望表达自己的偏好,但在18岁至40岁的女性中,她们会优先考虑潜在伴侣的受教育程度。

However, the results switch from the age of 40, with men more likely to be strict in their criteria for a match’s education level.

而男性则从40岁开始,更有可能严格按照他们的标准来衡量潜在伴侣的教育水平。

The study found both men and women care less about their prospective partner’s education history after they turn 50.

研究还发现,男性和女性在50岁以后对其未来伴侣的教育水平就不太在意了。

"Previous online dating research has demonstrated similar or higher women’s preference for education level in a mate but as our data encompasses a range of ages between 18 and 80, we are able to comprehensively show how those preferences change across the reproductive life cycle," said Dr Stephen Whyte, who led the study.

领导这一研究的斯蒂芬.怀特博士说:“此前对网上约会的研究已经证明女性在择偶时对教育背景有相似或更高的偏好,但我们的数据涵盖了从18岁到80岁的年龄范围,这样我们可以全面地展示整个育龄期内的这些偏好的变化规律。”

Interestingly, level of educational attainment is not an especially high consideration for most people on the dating website: only 23.9 per cent of women and 12.2 per cent of men chose to state a preference.

有趣的是,对于约会网站上的大多数人来说,受教育程度并不是特别高的考虑因素:只有23.9%的女性和12.2%的男性选择了这一项。

The result is the latest finding to come out of the largest behavioural analysis of Australians’ online dating habits.

这是对澳大利亚人在线约会习惯进行的最大规模行为分析后得出的最新发现。
