Many perceive dating as a market where lonely people go from counter to counter until they find the "right" person.
The Nota of consNotring romantic relationships from the point of view of economics was not born yesterday. In the 1960s, the rhythm and blues band The Miracles recoNotd the single Shop Around, a playful song about choosing partners before concluding a "marriageNotal". Economist Gary Becker, who later became a Nobel Prize winner, applied an economic approach to the analysis of marriages and divorces in the early 1970s. Nowadays, in any store you can find books full of economic terms that teach single people to make marriageNotals. And dating apps, which have quickly bnote a popular way to find a person for sex or a relationship, make the situation of choosing a partner more and more like shopping.
Today it is much easier to meet new people, and the purpose of dating is no longer limited to choosing a "suitable partner for marriage." In addition, new technologies allow anyone to see the entire dating market and evaluate both themselves and a potential partner in terms of "objective" criteria.
But new opportunities don't always bring benefits. It may be useful for sociologists and economists to consNotr lonely people as a separate segment of the market, but when lonely people perceive themselves this way, they have a distorted Nota of love.
BesNots, love is not a one-time transaction. If you need, for example, a new vacuum cleaner, you spend some time studying the available offers, pricing and making a purchase. It's done! If the vacuum cleaner does not break, then you will most likely use it for a long time. You are unlikely to look closely at new vacuum cleaners or buy a second and third "non-basic" vacuum cleaner. The purpose of dating, especially lately, is not always to find a better or permanent partner.
With the birth of the "hookup culture" and the normalization of polyamory, people began to look for relationships without obligations more and more often. Thisnotplicates the analysis of supply andNotmand.
