The results don't look promising for British singles. A university maths tutor has discovered the science behind singledom, finding that our chances of finding the perfect partner are just 1 in 285,000.

A university maths tutor has discovered the science behind singledom, finding that our chances of finding the perfect partner are just 1 in 285,000.

Peter Backus, a tutor at the University of Warwick, published his "Why I Don't Have a Girlfriend" thesis after a three-year love drought.

His quirkystudy uses a famous maths formula called The Drake Equation, which was first used to estimate the existence of extra-terrestrial life.

The results don't look promising for British singles. 30-year-old Mr Backus found that out of the 30 million women in the UK, only 26 would be suitable girlfriends for him.

The mind-numbingequation takes into account the number of women aged 24 to 34, living in his home city of London, and who are single, meaning his chances of meeting his dream woman on a night out are slim.

The economics expert said: "There are 26 women in London with whom I might have a wonderful relationship.

"So, on a given night out in London there is a 0.0000034% chance of meeting one of these special people. That’s a 1 in 285,000 chance, so it's not great.

The baffling Drake equation reads: N = R* x Fp x Ne x Fi x Fc x L, and helped pioneering scientist Professor Drake to predict that there could be 10,000 civilisations in our galaxy.

Mr Backus simply replaced the original equation with his own criteria for a dream date, which included the percentage of women likely to find him attractive, and the number of girls aged 24-34 in London.

He said: "The research may sound depressing to people looking for love, but the good news for singles is, it's probably not your fault!"

His full thesis is available on the University of Warwick's website.

日前,英国一名大学数学讲师发现了单身的科学依据,他称人们找到合适伴侣的几率只有1/285000。

英国华威大学的数学讲师皮特 巴克斯在经历了三年的感情空缺后发表了一篇题为《我为什么没有女朋友》的论文。

他在这项奇怪的研究中运用了一个著名的数学公式——“德雷克等式”。这一公式最初被用于估算外星生命存在的几率。
