Much empirical evidence shows that female and male partners look alike along a variety of attributes.
It is, however, unclear how this positive sorting comes about because marriage is an equilibrium outcome arising from a process that entails searching, meeting, and choosing one another.
The predicted matches are similar to the actual matches achieved by the dating site, and the actual matches are approximately efficient.
Out-of- sample predictions of offline matches, i.e., marriages, exhibit assortative mating patterns similar to those observed in actual marriages.
Importantly, meeting opportunities have a substantial role in determining dating proposals.
Using data on user attributes and interactions from an online dating site, we estimate mate preferences, and use the Gale-Shapley algorithm to predict stable matches.
