Looking For Love? So Is The Date Lab.

After a casual perusal of the latest installment of the Washington Post Magazine’s “Date Lab,” we noticed that the end of most of these dates didn’t have the most desirable of outcomes. It also made us curious about what kind of success rate the Date Lab has had in the past. Of the 32 dates available in the archive, 11 were found to be successful — with success being defined as the couple seeing each other after their initial date. That’s roughly 34 percent, for those of you scoring at home. Why are nearly two thirds of their dates not ending in romance?

To be fair, one date hit the jackpot. This couple actually got engaged following their date (and presumably many others). Perhaps future Date Labbers will be just as lucky.
