Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It cuts both ways. Educated, high status women have great difficulty to feel attracted to (say) rural guys. Ideally, a guy should represent a higher value in some respect - otherwise it's an unwanted compromise for a woman.

Like evolutionary reasoning in textbooks, ecopsych is effect-oriented. Women perceive a very tight dating market (for quality men), and their selection strategy is negative - that is, they generally look for reasons to disqualify prospects. That is already a bottleneck against exponential population growth in tighter environments, where not many males can secure adequate resources.
