What Are the Most Important Ratios to Use When Valuing a Girlfriend?

I have spent all my life plugging numbers in excel and have recently gotten my ting-ting touched by a real life potential gf. I #REF'd myself early and need to be better prepared next time. How shall I value this specimen to be more prepared next time?

Parental Net Worth / Annual OpEx and monthly Fights / BJs ratio. My golden number for the latter is 3. If I only have to hold my own in three shouting matches to get to that next succ I can hang in there.

I tend to use the standard ifhappy= function. No need to boil the ocean.

If we're talking wife material, use the full suite of valuation options: 

  • DCF projecting cash flows for 5-10 years and NPV inheritance - certain considerations include streaming services paid for, memberships to country/social clubs, etc.
  • Precedents: her Mom
  • Comps: her friends/sorority sisters - multiples are on you
  • LBO if you're looking for an exit, otherwise a waste of time

This is pretty comprehensive. Include div BJ recaps to juice happiness prior to an exit. It's a better return if you consider time value of BJs vs. just getting one massive BJ all at the end when you exit.

not ratios but

- is she pleasant to be around

- do you think you can trust her long-term

- is she healthy/pursues healthy habits (not overweight, doesn't smoke cigs)

- will she be a good parent

- is she attractive to you

- does she put out for you

if she meets 5/6 she's a keeper

The metrics depends on time horizon

One night = 100% looks/body and no other factors. 

Long term = 40% intellect, 35% personality and 25% looks/body.

Looks seem  a tad low For long term, no?

It seemed a little low when I wrote it but to increase it, I would have to reduce one of the others.  If you are young, it might seem low but as you get older, you will see what I mean.  You have to live with this person everyday.  I could never live with woman who would not score high on intellect and it is important that they are nice to you/others.  Of course, the woman should not look like a horse's ass
