Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?: An Economic Analysis of Relationship Preferences in Personal Advertisements
AbstractThe problem of matching relationship partners, at the aggregate level, has been modelled mathematically in the important work of Burdett and Coles (1997) and the micro matching problem was earlier studied by Gale & Shapley (1962). In this paper we propose a simple model to analyse individual partner-seeking behaviour, with a view to implementing this on a data set including stated preferences.
