Unformatted text preview: Suppose a women’s life contains ‘x’ number of days, and each day costs ‘y’. As a woman goes through life she loses one ‘x’ every day. Now when a woman is young, an ‘x’ isn’t worth much because she has thousands of them (i.e. x=1/10y). But, as life goes by, the amount of ‘x’ begins to decrease, therefore increasing the value of ‘y’ (i.e. x=10y). Therefore, when a woman is ages 20-30, the marginal cost of her days starts to catch up with the marginal benefit, and in a woman’s 30’s and 40’s the cost starts to exceed it. In conclusion, a women will take her time to choose the best mate, but as life progresses, she will change her definition of what a “perfect mate” is. This article was definitely interesting, especially to hear his theories about the eligible bachelor paradox. Whatever the answer may be, it sounds like waiting is my best option!...
