This paper presents the first attempts by economists to estimate a random utility maximisation model for the choice of desired involvement level in heterosexual relationships. A sample of newspaper `personal' advertisements is used to estimate a multinomial logit. Age is found to reduce the net probabiblity of seeking a casual relationship. A number of variables are found to be significant determinants of declared entry level.
