discussion PAPER "Affection, Speed Dating and Heart Breaking"

"Affection, Speed Dating and Heart Breaking"

That paper explores the role of unilateral and idiosyncratic affection rents ("love") from being married with a specific individual in a matching model with individuals with heterogenous matching frequencies. We show that individuals suffer in expectation from being matched with individuals with high matching frequency. High-frequency daters have high reservation utilities for entering into a marriage. This makes them turn down many offers and makes them appear as "heart-breakers".

"....... we describe the formal structure and characterize the Markov perfect equilibrium in the matching model. In section 3 we provide the comparative static properties of this equilibrium and interpret these results. Section 4 concludes.  ......   The matching takes place as a Poisson process.  ........ We search for stationary Markov perfect equilibrium (MPE)."

That paper is part of a series of papers trying to explain stable marriage as an economic function (as a complex mental process).
They are useless for the Online Dating Industry.
Marital stability does not include marital satisfaction. A marriage can be stable but miserable. Latest Research in Theories of Romantic Relationships Development shows: compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment.
