A woman who was inspired to have to sell things connected to her exes because of debt came up with a formula that can tell you whether old relationships were really worth it
Haley McGee used the formula on a one woman show and it’s featured in her new book. The ex-boyfriend yard sale.
By taking into account things like sex, love, passion, fear, and heartache, you can calculate whether the relationship left you better.
Haley, 35, a Canadian actress who now lives in London, said The mirror: “The math in this book is understandable, it uses numbers to look at our values, the value of our time, money and emotions, and how we invest in ourselves and our relationships. You absolutely don’t have to be a connoisseur to have fun to have in mathematics. “
The formula, show and book were inspired when Haley was in heavy debt four years ago, shortly after moving to the UK.
She put things together to sell and found that they were all linked to her exes, including a mixtape, necklace, ukulele, bike, typewriter, backpack, jewelry box, and T. -Shirt.
Haley began to wonder about the true value of a relationship after a relationship ended and worked with a mathematician to develop an algorithm that categorized 87 variables.
These variables include the value of the object and the length of the relationship, how good the sex was, how much fun or misery one had, and what lessons were learned from life.
She demonstrated the formula in a one-woman show and then designed a book.
Haley, who hosts a podcast called The Cost of Love, said, “She’s asking you to quantify why something went wrong and look for patterns that I think are far more useful than the hard numbers themselves.”

In their podcast, experts provide advice on listeners’ questions about money and relationships, and how it leads to resentment or exploitation.
“People have told me in the past that it’s gross to look at love and relationships in terms of money, but when you think about it we always talk about how much we invested in someone – the price we paid, whether a relationship is worth the effort or paying off, “she said.
She advises people to be honest with themselves about past relationships in order to refine what to look for in a new partner.
“I like to think of it as a cost-benefit analysis of relationships in terms of time, emotions, and money. It’s a way to use math in unexpected ways to make people feel like they can be more open about dating by knowing what they want. what they will and will not endure, “she added.
“And I hope it helps people be more courageous in their relationships, whether it’s having a difficult conversation with your current partner that takes you deeper, or realizing that you want other things and have the courage to carry on. “

So how does the math work?
The cost of love is: market value (MV) multiplied by one plus narrative impact (NI) plus Dollar Today (DT) minus time invested
