Crazy love facts Pt 2

Should you wed the first person you fall for?
How many people should you wine and dine before you can feel confident enough to say you’ve met your one and only? Believe it or not, mathematics has the answer: A dozen. “Check out and reject 12 people, then pick the next best that comes along, and you’re likely to have a very good match on your hands,” says Clio Cresswell, a mathematician and author of Mathematics and Sex. That’s because when it comes to decision-making, formulas reveal that your chances of picking the right answer improve as you expose yourself to more options. But there does come a point when you are over-researching: If you date and reject 30 or more potential mates, “you've probably met someone that you could possibly have been more than happy with, and passed them over,’ notes Cresswell.

Any comments???

I married the first man that I thought I was in love with and trust me it was not love.

Thank God that I didn't pursue any other men or else I wouldn't have met Mr.Bambi.

This concept about randomly going through a specifically defined amount of partners and then marring the next one is so absurd to me that It just made me laugh...

Its just bananas to think there is such a thing as a mathematical equation for a successful marriage, I'm not very keen on destiny either.

you have to do what feels right, and for every couple that is a different story, I'm glad for you was Mr. Bambi....

I'm very very single now so I don't have the slightest clue if or when I'm gonna get married... one thing I know... I'm not going to systematically date and dump anyone to find my future wife.
