Remember the movie 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy'?

Well, in that movie they said that the answer to everything is the number '42'. Well, reality has caught up with Douglas Adams and a mathematician has come up with an equation that solves a myriad of problems ranging from 'who is the right person for you' all the way to 'which house should I buy' and here's how it works.

Okay, let's say you are looking for the right person in your life. Well,a mathematician named Martin Gardner came up with a simple math formula  to help you make tough choices like that.  Here's what you do . . .

1.  Decide on the number of people you'll go out with in the near future.  Let's pick, just for the sake of the equation, a nice even dozen.

2.  Go out with 4 or 5 of them.  Keep in mind that none of the 4 are the ONE. But 4 is all you need to get an accurate cross sample of what's out there.

3. Start the dating process again only this time, as soon as you find someone better than the original 4 or 5, that's the one.

Why?  Because if you haven't found something better by then, the odds are . . . YOU'RE NOT GOING TO.

The cool thing is that, according to Martin Gardner, you can also use this equation for making a ton of life decisions including which house or car to buy, which college to enter or where to go on vacation.

So, if you haven't found 'The One' yet, give this a try. What have you got to lose?
