These days and in the midst of the celebration of Valentine’s Day, many people continue to search, without success, for the ideal partner. They go to dating apps, hang out with friends, or go places to meet people, but none of this delivers satisfactory results.
Given this, it went viral again an old mathematical formula that according to one of its creators, the mathematician Gihan Marasingha, from the University of Exeter, in the United Kingdom, is the key to finding the ideal partner.
This equation is based on what experts call the ‘TTheory of the optimal stopping problem”, which is also known in the world as the 37% rule. Although this formula is not exclusive to matters of the heart, according to experts it can work perfectly to rule out suitors while waiting to find the perfect candidate at the right time.
According to those who have studied this formula, the idea is that during 37% of your single period you do not fall in love, because after this stage, the chances of finding true love increase. This is called the rejection stage, and letting go could spell heart trouble down the road.
After this phase, You already enter the commitment stage, where according to mathematics, you are much more likely to find the ideal partner. In this order of ideas, what you should do is choose the first candidate who really turns out to be better than those you have already met during the previous phase or even in this new stage.
“To have the highest chance of choosing the best suitor, you must have rejected the first 37% of the suitor pool.” says the theory cited by the Daily Mail.
The mathematician advises giving a rating to each of the suitors with whom he has dated to be able to know, based on this same scale, which candidate is better than the previous ones and thus be able to define himself by him.
So far is the part that corresponds to those who are looking for a partner, Well, you must take into account that even if you have already made your choice, you must count on the feelings of the person in front of you, since this mathematical rule does not guarantee that the person you chose will fall in love with you.
