How do you find love?

Can maths help you find love?

Human emotion isn’t neatly ordered and rational or easily predictable. But that doesn’t necessarily mean maths doesn’t have anything to offer us in terms of looking at patterns of love.

In the above video, mathematician and complexity scientist Dr. Hannah Fry from University College London’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis explores how to find love with her top three mathematically verifiable tips for love.

The top three tips Hannah takes a look at are;

  1. How to win at online dating
    How choosing the right sort of profile photo can help you receive more messages from would-be suitors – among other things!
  2. How to pick the perfect partner
    If you’re successful with the first tip and you’re receiving loads of messages – how do you choose the right partner out of them all? And perhaps more importantly – when is the right time to settle down?
  3. How to avoid divorce
    1 in 2 marriages in America end in divorce – and the rest of the world isn’t that far behind. So how do you make sure you’re one of the lucky ones?
