Math Geeks Figure Out Courtship

How to woo women is the stuff ads in the back of Maxim are made. Well, those and male enahncement drugs for those with a women who has already been wooed.

So how do we solve this age old delimina? Ask math geeks.
Forget expensive presents or costly jewelry. Wining and dining is the best way for men to woo women, scientists said Tuesday.
Scientists also said that many women they rubbed up against on the train smelled good, but most don't seem to like the tape on their glasses.
Researchers at Imperial College London developed a mathematical formula and modeled courtship as a sequential game to find the best way to impress the ladies.

Physical attraction is an important element but offering gifts also helps.
The scientists added that there research was very objective because none of the scientists were actually subjects of the study. Not that they didn't want to be. It was just that none of them qualified because they hadn't dated since second grade. They do hope to use their findings on future dates, if they can get one.

I for one am hoping that tax dollars were used for this ground breaking research.

Never having had this tactic used on me, I can come to one of only two conclusions:

1. I'm a cheap date.

2. I'm a cheap date.
