Peter Backus, a teaching fellow of economics at the University of Warwick, published his Why I Don’t Have A Girlfriend theses after spending three years without a partner.
The math wiz used the Drake Equation, a formula used by scientists to calculate the potential number of extraterrestrials in our galaxy. He found his chances of finding true love were 1 in 285,000.
After researching almost 2,500 people for my book How to Make Someone Fall in Love with You in 90 Minutes or Less we calculated you have a one in sixteen chance of finding your Matched Opposite (the person who will complete you) when you know what to look for. I demonstrate that finding true love is a numbers game and show how to naturally and easily get out, get involved, and find your Matched Opposite. Your Matched Opposites are everywhere.
Turns out Peter Backus was wrong. Shortly after releasing his results he met Rose, his Matched Opposite. Rose met his age requirement and, like him, lives on a boat and has a university degree.
When asked what he’d learned from the exercise he summed up. “It’s a numbers game. She was just around the corner all the time. I just had to get out there.”
