Quantified Self

Quantified Self is a website where self-trackers—people who record and look for patterns in the empirical data of their lives—post their findings.


I've had six boyfriends so far in my life, with the average length of relationship being 14 months. The median is 12 months. Two out of the six—a full 33 percent of all of my romantic entanglements—had the last name of Wilson. And no, they weren't related.

My average span between boyfriends is 7.4 months. (The median is 4 months.) According to my own empirical data, I fall into 3 patterns between boyfriends, I move on at 0 months, 4 months or 12 months. Considering my last relationship was 10.5 months ago, that means I am 1.5 months away from my next boyfriend.

I've been single 41% of my adult life.

Well.

Isn't that something?

Lol I am not even going to try that. It'll come up with like 98.6% or something! Interesting numbers though...

Okay, so you now have six weeks to clean your apartment, shave your legs, buy some new undergarments....

I'm a girl who likes some advance notice, so this sort of thing is right up my alley.

Sorry D, there was no relationship tracker. I used a sheet of notebook paper and a bit of algebra. I'd be happy to share my formula if you are interested though!

crap! I saw a journal the other day that I thought you'd get a kick out of. Well, maybe you can google it if you're interested.

It's a journal for list-keeping with your friends.

I remember just one page specifically, it was to write down friends you'd choose to be stranded on an island with - their name and why....
