How to Find "The One": The Math Formula that Can Help27-11-2011
The Internet is full of dating theories, and it seems like every day there's a new study which might impact your dating life. But this theory might really, really change your approach to dating.
One of the major issues that modern daters who are looking for a permanent relationship (and not everyone is) face is trying to determine who is "the one." An active dater will go on numerous dates a year, and will probably have a few relationships under his or her belt by the time they hit 30 years old.
So at what point do you stop looking and start settling down? How do you know if you're being too picky, or if you should keep searching for the right person?
Peter Todd, a professor of informatics and cognitive science, answered this question in the December issue of Wired Magazine. "In the face of this conundrum, the best strategy for picking a mate is to date enough people to establish some baseline standards, then settle down with the next person you meet who exceeds the bar."
According to Todd's research, 12 seems to be the magic number when it comes to figuring out what you want in a relationship. After dating 12 people, most people have enough information to determine what qualities they're looking for in a long-term partner. Statistically speaking, that's the point when people who want to settle down should basically end their search and settle with the next person they date who meets (or surpasses!) these expectations.
That's how it works in theory. In practice, it's more like this:
How do I know when I should settle?
If you've dated fewer than 12 people, feel free to keep looking (and dating).
If you've dated, say, 30 people, you're probably being too picky.
It's really hard to quantify something like love: some people find it on their first try, while others find it on their fourth marriage. But having some sort of numeric baseline to apply, as inexact as it might be, is extraordinarily helpful. The encouragement to date more if you've only had a few relationships, the necessary wake-up call if you've dated many. And with so much of dating advice being so enigmatic ("when you know, you know!") it's nice to have a concrete rule to apply in order to somewhat gauge your progress.
So, how many under (or over) 12 are you?

MY EX IS FINALLY BACK TO ME
I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email firstname.lastname@example.org or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida....
