How many people should you wine and dine before you can feel confident enough to say you’ve met your one and only? Believe it or not, mathematics has the answer: A dozen. “Check out and reject 12 people, then pick the next best that comes along, and you’re likely to have a very good match on your hands,” says Clio Cresswell, a mathematician and author of Mathematics and Sex.

That’s because when it comes to decision-making, formulas reveal that your chances of picking the right answer improve as you expose yourself to more options.
Gudrs izskaidrojums. Pārbaudīt jau to nevar. Bet ko tie, kam jau pāri 12?
