I think maybe part of the complication is that people don't really trade on personalities. They don't want to, and if they did they'd probably regret it.

I can easily see why you'd would trade...

Lately I've been feeling like my whole life is sort of fated by /r/incel/ also.

I'm not celibate, but I am short. And I think of all the women I've dated, some fat, some not fat, some super-hot. ...

The OP is suggesting: pretty women tend to marry rich men. They trade their sex for money.

But would...

I'll agree at least 70%, with the OP. Love is somewhat a crude exchange of commodities.

Relationships are definitely about sex and money and some other stuff.

Decided on terrible capitalist. Now that I've researched "indirect taxation", my character gets a buck every-time I make a cheesy libertarian dig. Pretty much alike AO political.
