Math Proves Dating in Large Cities Sucks
Given the numbers, dating in large cities is more difficult than dating in a less populated area.
If you live in a large city like New York, LA, or Chicago, and you’ve been having a hard time finding the right guy, it’s because math is working against you.
That’s right, math proves that dating in large cities is definitely harder, says Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist from the London School of Economics. He’s referring to a study conducted in 1966 by two mathematicians that proved a mathematic theory that, when looking for the best candidate in a pool of people, you must reject the first 37 percent no matter how they performed. Then, the next candidate that you find that is better than that first 37 percent is your best bet.
So, in a large city, if you reject the first 37 percent of potential guys you meet, that adds up to an insane amount of guys. Whereas, if you live in a smaller town, the first 37 percent of people you meet is not going to include as many people because there’s a smaller pool to begin with.
Confused? Watch Satoshi Kanazawa explain this theory in the video below… and then contemplate moving. (Huffington Post)
