If love is mathematics

Amy Webb's TED talk

Assuming your June issue of ELLE isn’t already heavily thumbed through, if you haven’t cast your eyes on ‘Can you learn to love and be loved?’ - a revealing and touching probe into an anonymous ELLE writer’s relationship and past – we highly suggest you do, now.

Amy’s talk reveals her humorous new approach to online dating – creating spreadsheets and calculating probability (based on indicators such as sportiness and male population). She also shares horror stories from her single days, as well as the superficial problems of creating an online persona to find love.

Inspiring and eye-opening, the talk also identifies how Amy eventually made the system work for her.
