Looking for 'the one'? Try doing the math

Wondering when it'll be the right time to settle down and find "the one"? What if we told you it was all in the math?

When it comes to finding your soulmate, it might be time to take a gamble. Just like a casino game, it's partially about chance-- but you can do a little better if you understand the probability that you'll actually pick the right person.

And in this case, the magic number is 37. Experts say you'll have a 37 percent chance of finding your soulmate in your lifetime. So, if you do the math-- and trust it-- you should date 37 percent of the suitors that come your way. Then, you pick the next person who is better than anyone you've ever dated before.

Simple math... right? But hold on. There's the risk that the first person you date really is your perfect partner-- and if you keep rejecting everyone who comes your way, you'll find yourself alone.
