“Yes, Men Do Leave the Market”

Sometimes men just stop looking for dates.

The reason is the expected rate of return of your precious, finite, and perpetually dwindling time. If you go out, hot as you may be when you’re 18, you have little to no control over succeeding in getting a girl’s number or a date. And as experience will tell you it’s a 1/20 shot you will succeed, and that’s assuming you have good game. All in all, I would estimate most 20 somethings waste an equivalent to 4 full years of full time work chasing girls to relatively little avail. A significant opportunity cost.

The X-Box 360 on the other hand is a guaranteed rate of return.

I have been meaning to spend more time with my Xbox 360.
