For your own sake, we really hope you're one of those people who is totally OK with settling, because finding the man of your dreams is nigh on impossible
The exact arithmetical chances of finding your perfect partner? 1 in 285,000.
A math tutor at a U.K. university used the same formula that was used to determine how many civilizations might exist in our galaxy and applied it on a much smaller scale to his hometown of London. It turns out that on any given night there are probably 26 girls in the U.K. who might make a suitable partner for him.
To put it another, less optimistic-sounding way, there's a .0000034 percent chance he might meet the girl of his dreams. Will we ever find our dream man? It doesn't seem like it, but hey, at least it's not our fault.
With odds like that we'd rather take our chances playing scratch tickets -- it's cheaper than a night on the town, and you can have fun without changing out of your sweatpants. Hallelujah!
