The most recent edition of the Post’s Date Lab resulted in yet another miss by Cupid’s arrow. The date can essentially be summed up in this quote from one of the daters:
- “I wasn’t sure why we’d been set up. He comes from a classically Indian family, and his first marriage was arranged. I’m an ex-military, motorcycle-riding female. That’s almost as feminist as you can get, so my initial reaction was, Why the heck did they put us together? Are they trying to see how bad the date will be?’“
This brings the ratio to 34 successful dates out of a total of 93, or roughly 36.5 percent.
