Can't speak to dating in biglaw; 3L currently. But dating advice that applies to men also applies to women and vice versa. There's no biological reason why it shouldn't, and to argue otherwise probably comes off as pretty demeaning to many women. How about we discuss dating in general human terms? People date all kinds of people of all genders and for different reasons, and any gender based assumptions must end up being unhelpful anyways.
ETA: happy to be scooped by the immediately preceding guy.
Hate to play devil's, advocate here because I agree that any dating advice here should be focused on dating in general human terms BUT fertility is a biological difference. Of course, this assumes that dating is at least somewhat tangentially related to potentially having children.
