Melbourne, January 13 (ANI): A student in the UK has applied a mathematical equation that predicts the possibility of alien life in the universe to describe why he is without a girlfriend.
Peter Backus, a native of Seattle and PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick, UK, described his ideas in "Why I don't have a girlfriend: An application of the Drake Equation to love in the UK", adding "the results are not encouraging", according to MyFox.
"The probability of finding love in the UK is only about 100 times better than the probability of finding intelligent life in our galaxy," News.com.au quoted him as saying.
The 30-year-old pointed out that the odds of finding a girlfriend were only about 100 times better than finding an alien, according to Click Liverpool.
But Backus kept the twist, saying he has a girlfriend of about six months.
He told Asylum.com: "She's from London. And she meets all my criteria."
The Drake Equation was developed in 1961 by Dr. Frank Drake at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in West Virginia. (ANI)
