PIPE DREAM - Mar 29 - Mathematician Hannah Fry shared top 3 tips for being successful in the search for love, during her TEDx talk at Binghamton University. Her first tip, “how to win at online dating,” covered steps to creating an OKCupid profile that gets attention. Fry said that though most people try and hide the aspects of their appearance that they feel others might find unappealing, they should actually show them off. Her second tip went over how a person might know when is the right time to settle down into a meaningful, long-term relationship. She explained that in order for one to maximize their chances of finding an ideal partner, assuming they are searching from when they turn 15 to when they turn 35, is to reject every partner that shows up during the first 37% of that stretch in time, and to settle with the next person that appears who is better than all of his or her predecessors. This procedure is called optimal stopping theory, is apparent in nature, according to Fry. Fry’s last was how to avoid divorce. The couples with the healthiest relationships are not the ones who put up with each other the best, but instead are the ones who are most willing to be vocal with one another about what is bothering them.
