The Attractiveness Equation

Calculate Your Dating Market Value

When you’re in your early 20s and dating for the sake of hooking up and having fun, there is no long-term risk to dating women more attractive than you. In fact, it’s a confidence boost to successfully bed a woman that seems out of your league. There is also not much risk to dating beneath you. It can mean easy sex and less rejection, though you don’t want to become complacent and lose confidence in your abilities to pluck better fruit.

There are, however, long-term risks if you decide to date women significantly more or less attractive than you when you’re older and ready to settle down. You could end up marrying a trophy wife, which can lead to an imbalanced power dynamic that makes you feel insecure and anxious. Or you could end up marrying someone that doesn’t challenge you, leading you to become bored and tempted to cheat, all while making your wife insecure and neurotic.

The ideal scenario when pairing up is to find a woman who is your equal so that your relationship can be mutually satisfying, stimulating, and balanced. To find an equal partner, you will first need to determine your current dating market value (DMV), so you can then compare your attractiveness to that of your potential mate. This will also help you recognize the ways in which you can increase your value a point or two.

There are many things you can do to increase your DMV. In fact, the only things you can’t change are your personality (though this will evolve as you mature), age, height, intelligence, skin tone, and penis size. Luckily, you can increase your value by improving your appearance, style, status (career and income), game, and sexual prowess.

Ideally, your value will naturally increase as you get older and become more successful in your career, ultimately peaking in your early 30s, right when it matters most. If you peak before you’re ready to get married, you may regret not locking it down when you had more options. If you peak after you’re married, you may resent that your partner is no longer at your level (unless your partner’s value continues to increase as well).

 Here are some basic guidelines:

If there is > 1.5 points of a discrepancy between the man’s DMV and the woman’s DMV, then the relationship is likely to be imbalanced.

If the man’s DMV and the woman’s DMV is = or < 1.5 points apart, then the relationship is likely to be in balance.

If you’re pursuing a woman that wants to be “just friends,” then you may be shooting out of your league.

If you’re dating a woman that you have doubts about, then you may be selling yourself short.

If you’re not having any luck with women, then your DMV may be keeping you out of the game.
