It is not uncommon for dating agencies to promise paradise, as it were: that with their help a person can find precisely the companion who best suits him or her. That no one has to be content with a mediocre relationship anymore.
A number of providers even promise to have found a formula for happiness: a sophisticated algorithm that can be used to filter out the right partner from the almost unmanageable range real sex hookups.
The reality shows, however, that singles can choose from an infinite number of men and women willing to contact - but still often fail to find the right one.
The British economist Peter Backus wanted to find out a few years ago how likely it is for him to find a suitable partner. Backus, then 30, tried to understand why he didn't have a girlfriend, although his claims seemed comparatively modest. He wanted a partner who, like him, lived in London, who should be between 24 and 32 years old, who was good looking and who had studied. Backus calculated that around 10,510 women in the UK met these minimum criteria. He then calculated how many of these people did not have a partner, how many could feel attracted to him and how many of this subset he would get along with sufficiently well. The result: According to his formula, only 26 women in the greater London area were eligible for him.
