Trifextra: Dating Probabilities

 The directions for this week’s short writing challenge from Trifecta Writing Challenge:

Andy Rooney created something called “The 50-50-90 rule: anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.”  We want you to give us your own probability equation.  Use whichever numbers suit you, and make it about whatever you like, but give us something to think about.  In 33 words, of course.  

Swimming among the felons, married cheaters, and talented liars in the cesspool of online dating candidates is one good guy. The probability of finding him before cynicism infiltrates your heart is infinitessimally minute.
