LONDON — Of the quest to find true love, it is a well-used adage that one must kiss a few frogs before meeting a prince.
And it would appear this theory is accurate, after a mathematician came up with a formula to find a perfect mate. Hannah Fry, a mathematician at University College London, has developed a practical theory for love that involves ruling out anyone you meet in the first 37% of your dating life.
Your answers to each question are then compared to other users to determine a compatibility percentage for each individual question.
The traditional means of meeting and dating are slowly being replaced by websites and mobile apps.
Besides location, using the correct dating app or website can dictate your success.
While each platform has its own merits, a large user base provides more opportunities for connections.
With this in mind, a game theorist would associate an app like Tinder as a matching game; deducting the best possible strategy and payoff for swiping right or left.
With an unlimited amount of swipes, the best strategy would involve not discriminating the market.
