Math Geek Comes Up With Equation to Explain His Lack of a Girlfriend
He's so cuuuuuute! photo at link, plus more of the article, which is also cute

Don't tell Mystery this, but finding a suitable mate may be a science, not an art.

That's what one hard-up economist explores in his paper, "Why I Don't Have a Girlfriend: An Application of the Drake Equation to Love in the U.K.," in which he uses a brainy math formula to estimate the number of potential girlfriends in London.

His findings are less than encouraging.

The lovelorn economist is Peter Backus, a native of Seattle and a fourth year PhD candidate and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick, near London.

His offbeat paper, which he devised after a three-year girlfriend drought, is based on the Drake Equation, which is normally used to estimate the number of highly evolved civilizations that may exist in our galaxy.

The equation, which might make you nauseous, states that:

Yeah, we have no idea what it means either. But Backus does. And he decided to put the formula to work for romantic purposes. "It seemed like a natural thing to do," says Backus in an exclusive interview with Asylum. "Basically, it was a way of quantifying my dismay."

"The result of the equation? Of the roughly 30 million women in the U.K., only 26 are potential mates for Backus."

That's horrendous!~

He doesn't need female company. And he certainly doesn't need Company. The question is the company he keeps.

Like attracts wife, or so I've heard.
