I shouldn't be this stressed. I have a good job, a nice apartment in San Francisco, and good friends. Everything has been going great. That, is, until my closest friend told me something that ruined it all. My boyfriend of many years, the love of my life, had been using his job as an excuse to cheat on me. He's been gone for weeks, now.
Jane, my best friend, thinks I should move on. She says he's not worth it, that I'm hot enough to do better than him.
I don't want to.
Jake was wonderful, both in life and in the bedroom. Now, I can't stop thinking about him in bed with other women, bringing them the pleasure that was mine. I can't seem to move on. I just want my boyfriend back in my arms. Will I be like this forever?
I was so sure of my fate until I met Noah. He's... interesting. I want to get to know him more, but what if Jake comes back? What if he doesn't? I can't keep holding back, but I'm scared to move on. I can feel the lust Noah has for me, without even looking at him. I know he wants me.
Should I wait for Jake to come back to me? Should I give in to Noah's charm? Whatever I do, I know I won't be doing much sleeping.

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.
