“Basically people tend to pair off based on similarity and mate value. So the 8s tend to go with the 8s, the 10s with 10s, the 6s with the 6s, et cetera.

But you can have an 8 start out with an 8, but over time, let's say the guy loses his job or becomes an alcoholic or something goes wrong, or from the woman's perspective, perhaps her mate value increases, they move to a different environment or her career takes off.

And so it's very difficult to maintain perfectly matched mate value trajectories over time, but if a mate value discrepancy opens up, so you're an 8 and the person you started with was an 8, but now they're a 6.

Well, people start becoming dissatisfied with the relationship and look to trade up, look to divest themselves of their existing mate and either get back into the mating pool or trade up with someone who has shown an interest in them.”
