Abstract [en]

A fundamental fact in two-sided matching is that if amarket allows several stable outcomes, then one is optimal for all men in the sense that no man would prefer another stable outcome.We study a related phenomenon of asymmetric equilibria in a dynamic market where agents enter and search for a mate for at most n rounds before exiting again. Assuming independent preferences, we find that this game has multiple equilibria, some of which are highly asymmetric between sexes. We also investigate how the set of equilibria depends on a sex difference in the outside option of not being mated at all.
