probability of love

A term popularized by Peter Backus in his graduate research paper "Why I Don't Have A Girlfriend." Probability of love is a statistical calculation on the possibility of a person meeting and then marrying that perfect someone in a given demographics. It takes into considerations of such factors as looks, personality, height, wealth, age, location, and intangibles like chemistry. Depressingly, in a typical city like London or New York, the odds of meeting the perfect date is usually about 1-in-250,000.

It seems that as you get older, dating becomes more challenging. And a pandemic is not to blame. Despite the fact that the pandemic has altered our life. I rely on american asian dating sites more and more. I spend the day at work. I can prepare dinner in the evening and retire to bed. There isn't time for walks or dates in particular. I click a site to discover a review of crossdresser hookup . I used to be quite dubious about this, but I now realize that this is my only opportunity to find love.
