Response to Sorry, Guy: Math Can’t Get You A Girlfriend:
OK first of all, if he’s a mathematician, what else is he going to date as? Secondly, the very existence of dating websites sort of proves the known fact that the age-old puzzle of picking up women has been compounded in our yes-we-both-are-here-but-could-you-write-me-an-email-first world. Thirdly, the so-called nerdy guys wouldn’t go to such websites to meet women if there were no women on it. Algorithms cannot find your soul-mate, true, but if so-called creep bots are able to increase a guy’s chances of at least *meeting* a woman, I’d say that’s a pretty darned unfair label for the poor bot. Not to mention the guy.
