Opportunity Cost of Love.

For economists, the opportunity cost is the value of an alternative that must be forgone in order to pursue a certain action. Put another way, the benefits you could have received by taking an alternative action.


Opportunity Cost of Love is the net benefit from being in another relationship. Most people are not aware of this hidden cost. While you are in love, you could have been in love with someone who is much better for you. Also, the time, money, and energy that were invested in the relationship could have been spent in having more friends, find your calling, or furthering your career.


Insights and Predictions.

  1. Most people are oblivious to recognizing the opportunity cost of love.
  2. Being in a relationship with someone who is not your soulmate is very costly.
  3. It is very rare to find people who have many close friends, a career they love, and a soulmate.


Tactics to Lower Your Opportunity Cost.

  1. Never commit until you find true love. You are always single and available.
  2. Never say you have a boyfriend or girlfriend when you are still researching.
  3. Stagger your life,  by first focusing on career then finding your soulmate.
