After almost nine years, the cost of finding him has plummeted to a mere $2 a day, and in another decade it’ll be less than a dollar. In our view, a bargain.

Ha! The math that justifies expensive handbags can justify love, too. Great piece.

What if you reversed the pay scale? Let's say Dale said "Hey, my service is free, but if I find you a match, you have to pay me a dollar every day you stay together." I wonder how many people would sign up for that?

But it was published under "Fashion". Heh.
