Many thanks for explaining why, after 45* years of dating, I still can't find a lasting match. With your permission I'd like to copy the article, enlarge the raw math sections, mount and frame it. There's a perfect spot on the wall next to my curio cabinet filled with souvenirs from a lifetime of dating duds.

*First date at age 18. Am 63 yrs old now. Never been married, never cohabitated. Normal, pleasant, sensible, good career, well traveled, intelligent, average looks, many interests but not manic about any of them (eg no collections, no cats running wild around the house). Sort of the reliable older sister type but not stodgy.
