Mathematics to Dating

For all the mathematicians that are already happily settled down, this news is not for you. Otherwise, mathematicians have devised the magic ratio at which a person should date around and reject people before settling down. In a nutshell, a person should reject the first 37% of their potential dating pool (but still date them for comparison metrics). After the brutal round of rejecting that 37% are complete, the person should subsequently settle for the first person that is better than all the prior rejects. The math behind the 37% lies within the article (or here and here) but all plays against probability.

The bottom line is, "I'm sorry baby, it's not you ... it's math."
