Dating was now dominated by sites like Match. But Oyer had a secret weapon: It turns out that dating sites are no different than the markets Oyer had spent a lifetime studying.

The arcane language of economics—search, signaling, adverse selection, cheap talk, statistical discrimination, thick markets, and network externalities—provides a useful guide to finding a mate.

Using the ideas that are central to how markets and economics and dating work, Oyer shows how you can apply these ideas to take advantage of the economics in everyday life, all around you, all the time. Hardcoverpages. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
