The 37% Solution in Dating


Modern dating is a daunting, digital labyrinth. Globalization and online dating have exploded our pool of potential partners to tens of thousands. How do we settle when someone better could be just a swipe or click away?

While dating experts speculate, mathematicians offer an intriguing solution. First, estimate the number of people you’ll date in your lifetime. After you’ve dated 37% of them, the next person you date who’s better than anyone else before them is statistically most likely to be the best person you’ll ever date.

The theory isn’t bulletproof but should assuage the anxiety of facing infinite choices.
