Engagement Survey

..

So, my roommate got engaged last night. After I found out this morning, I began to do some math.
...
Now let's see...carry the 1, minus 2, multiply by the number of years and divide by total number of  roommates...
 ...
Yes yes, the equation seems to be as follows:
 ...
In the past 10 years, I have had 10 roommates.
Out of those 10, 8 have gotten engaged within 1 year of being my roommate
(with the odd exception being 1 year and 3 months, or something of that sort).

Out of those 8, 4 of them have gotten engaged while they were my roommate.
...
WHICH MEANS:
 ...
As Ashley's roommate, you have (roughly) an 80% chance of finding marryable love in the subsequent year of your life. And a 40% chance of finding marryable love immediately. Take this into consideration, as I will need a new roommate at some point next summer.
..
I should charge a fee for this service. It's like I have a gift or something.
....
(ps: Congrats Courtney!)

You crack me up! Hey wait a second, did I get counted as a roommate? "Remember When" we were just briefly?

afterthoughtcomposer said...

yes you did! I counted that we were roommates in the beginning of 2005, and you were engaged by February of 2006...was I right?

Natalie said...

Ooh, nope sorry, I'm going to ruin your stats. I was engaged Summer/05, and then we were roomies after in Fall/05. It's still good odds though, and a service you should charge for.
