There’s the risk, for example, that the first person you date really is your perfect partner, as in the illustration below.
If you follow the rule, you’ll reject that person anyway.
(Of course, some people may find cats preferable to boyfriends or girlfriends anyway.) Another, probably more realistic, option is that you start your life with a string of really terrible boyfriends or girlfriends that give you super low expectations about the potential suitors out there, as in the illustration below.
Here, it doesn't matter whether you use our strategy and review one candidate before picking the other.
If you do, you have a 50 percent chance of selecting the best.
You want to date enough people to get a sense of your options, but you don't want to leave the choice too long and risk missing your ideal match.
You need some kind of formula that balances the risk of stopping too soon against the risk of stopping too late.
One problem is the suitors arrive in a random order, and you don’t know how your current suitor compares to those who will arrive in the future. (If you're into math, it’s actually 1/e, which comes out to 0.368, or 36.8 percent.) Then you follow a simple rule: You pick the next person who is better than anyone you’ve ever dated before.
