The story of a perfect date
The pattern for a choice of dating
This is a classic case of dating and matching after a date. Let us assume that a person has three friends who are girls, and they dote on the same male person. We have to find a solution for a perfect date which may happen with a movie, museum and library. (Can happen both sides, as this is supposed to be a non male-centric world!) Let us name the three girls as A, B and C.
Let us assume that the male person X has three options to choose from the choice of three persons A, B and C, which are going to a movie, museum and library respectively. The matrix of choice for X and A, B and C are given below.
Choices of persons | Movie | Museum | Library |
X | 1 | -1 | 0 |
A | 1 | 0 | -1 |
B | -1 | 1 | 0 |
C | -1 | 0 | 1 |
Here,
‘-1’ means not a choice
‘0’ means may or may not go
‘+1’ means a good choice
Let us draw the matrix for choice from the side of X.
A as a Choice of X | B as a Choice of X | C as a Choice of X | |
Choice of X | 1 | 0 | -1 |
Here,
‘-1’ means not an option as a prime consort
‘0’ may or may not happen for a date as a consort
‘+1’ means a good choice as a prospective choice as a girl friend
Now, to create a perfect date the choices can be used for movie, museums and library, we can draw the pay-off matrix as below. Here, the first value of the pay-off matrix denotes the choice and match of A, B and C respectively, while the next value denotes the ‘value’ of a relationship.
Movie | Museum | Library | |
A | (1,2) | (0,1) | (0,0) |
B | (-1,-1) | (1,0) | (0,-1) |
C | (-1,-2) | (0,-1) | (1,0) |
Here, the code for the perfect date is given below.
Pay-Off Value 1 | +2 | Best choice as a consort |
Pay-Off Value 2 | +1 | Good choice for date |
Pay-Off Value 3 | 0 | May or may not happen |
Pay-Off Value 4 | -1 | Case of less possibility |
Pay-Off Value 5 | -2 | Case of an impossible date |
The assumptions are:
- Choices for a consort and dating place are respected
- The pay-off matrix is biased towards the person X
- Impossible date means that the person X will adhere to the basic rules of selection
