Dating by the numbers

rejections / month = effort ratio

time of previous attempt – time of attempt / attempts = mean time between rejection

sum(base reached) / (rejections * 3) = quality of failure

(rejections-didn’t meet – didn’t ask) /month = productivity

(rejections – acceptance) / attempts = efficiency ratio

attempts before success / (1/gender ratio) = efficiency of success

qualified dating partners / people like yourself = effective gender ratio

(I might have mucked up the algebra on these, hopefully I have an algebraist among my readers that can straigten out my math)

You only succeed once. Unlike sales, your metrics of progress are various measures of the quantity of failures. Kind of hard to remember that when you find yourself thinking about one person for days at a time.
