It is a deep dark secret of mine that I used to be a philatelist—yes, you can denigrate that fine hobby by calling it stamp collecting if you wish.
I collected certain kinds of 19th-century postal history (mailed envelopes) and I used to enjoy travelling from dealer to dealer digging through bins of musty postal history looking for the items that I collected. Collecting postal history has gone from a labor of seeking out interesting shops and sales and digging through musty boxes to one of logging on to e Bay, typing in a search request (19th-century postal history), and clicking on whatever envelope covers catch my eye. Now I realize that the economic language of frictionless markets isn't very romantic, but the fact is that the dating game is a kind of market whether we want to admit it or not.
Progressing from the first flirtatious moment of eye contact to the selection of a "mate," this enlightening book offers playful philosophical explorations of the dating game for anyone who has dated, is dating, or intends to date again.
I agree that it's a problem, but it isn't the only problem.Often people look to love and relationships as a way to find something they believe they don’t already have, whether it be comfort or to relieve anxiety or insecurity.In other words, people are looking for their missing piece, and this leads to disappointment time and time again.A frictionless market is one that puts together buyer and seller without transaction costs.In the real world there is no such thing as a frictionless market, but some markets have more friction than others.
