    Default Less Than One

    Do you believe in a soul mate?
    Calculate your possibility of finding "the one".

    Less Than One

    This is a quiz of sorts...but I'm putting it here for discussion (and the video is contrived with poor acting - feel free to skip).

    Whenever people try to calculate the odds of meeting their soul mate or just someone acceptably compatible, it always looks dire. I suppose that's where alcohol, hormones and desperation kick in, but it does make you wonder how anyone ever manages to find a happy relationship.

    Blah blah blah...what do you think?

    My results:

    I've long since given up on that search. I am so disappointed in my discovery of what people actually are that I find my chances to be exactly 0. I don't need to take the test to know this. Why seek a partner who at some point is likely to disappoint you by lying (this is a certainty), betraying you (somewhat likely) and eventually deciding they are better off without you (divorce statistics put this at almost 50%, higher if you count regular breakups as well.) My conclusion? Why bother.

    Although according to that test my chances are okay with 221 people within my percentiles, in a city of 4 million.

    8 people in my city, if I am being picky. Haha. I don't know how they get those percentages though. Could be up to 200 if I am less picky.

    Weird to think about.

    NUMBER OF PEOPLE PERFECT FOR YOU

    Well, I could also date people in surrounding cities which it didn't give me the option to do. I also live in a big college town, so probably more than 15% of the population could intellectually stimulate me. Didn't ask me what I wanted my age range to be either.

    I beat the odds apparently. Hehehaha.

    I read somewhere that in a lifetime, the average person will only meet around 100,000 or so people, and that's generous.
    Although I guess the idea is that in a bigger city, the pool is still wider so that some of those 100k may be "like-minded".

    Going from a 4 (+1std) to a 5 (+2std) makes a huge difference.

    I scored: 2 for looks, 4 for intellect, 4 for values. I would say I'm really between 4 and 5 for the latter two. Probably top 5% is preferrable.

    I estimate in my time in my current job I have met approx 637,000 unique individuals. That's based on the average number of people in a working day I will have face to face contact with x number of days per year I work / 2 to remove repeat customers (assuming a generous 50% of people are repeats). Of those roughly half million I would place around 10% into a suitable age group and gender. Of that 60k or so I would say I was attracted to approximately 4. So really I think the stats on that test are very, very generous.

    If I factor in the fact that I am gay (assuming 5% of the population) I get a resounding 0.20.

    Meh.
