It's ladies' night at the hottest club in town. We're supposed to be helping my friend get over her heartbreak, but I just can't take my eyes off of him. I shouldn't go talk to him. I have to be here for my friend! Even though it's ladies' night, I want to get to know him. Should I stay here on the dance floor, swinging my hips to the music? Should I go talk to him? I can feel his eyes on me.
He's the barkeep, and his name is Matt. I can't help but think about his toned, muscular body on me. Those stunning green eyes, that soft blonde hair, that killer smile... I'm definitely going to get to know him.
But hey, I'm not looking for a boyfriend. My last relationship was rough. I want to have a little fun! All I want is a simple one-night stand. Nothing more.
Matt is different, though. I expected that he'd be like every other guy I'd brought home. He's so incredibly compassionate and kind. Sometimes, he's too kind. He wants to take it slow, which is the opposite of what I want. Still, I'm craving him in so many ways. He's changing the way I think about everything. Maybe I'm ready to date again. When I'm with Matt, everything feels right.
The feelings I have when I'm with him are so strong. It makes me wonder... Are soulmates real?Genre: FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS / Love & Romance

Chapter 1. Optimal Stopping – When to Stop Looking
One thing that makes life difficult is not knowing when to stop – this has been labeled as the Optimal Stopping Problem. There is a danger of quitting too early and missing out on something good, or quitting too late and exhausting the little energy and time that we have.
Thankfully, there is an algorithm that will make decisions much easier. It’s not entirely foolproof, but it will produce better outcomes than doing things randomly.
The Optimal Stopping Problem deals not with what option to select but how many choices to consider. Based on statistical data, the ideal percentage is 37%.
The Secretary Problem explores the idea of Optimal Stopping. Someone tasked to hire a secretary has to choose among applicants, but he must know when to stop so that he will not miss someone who is good for the job.
In looking for the secretary, stopping late means prolonging the choice unnecessarily, while stopping too early lets the best applicant go unhired. The strategy is to find a reasonable balance between the two conditions.
