How to Find a Spouse

You are seeking a life-partner and, obviously, want to find the best match possible. As you meet and date "candidates", you have the opportunity to determine how well matched you are as a couple. There are several rules to this dating game: 1) It is generally considered bad form to date seriously two different people simultaneously, so you consider each person one at a time. 2) You can date someone for any length of time, but eventually, you must either "select" them or say "no", and move on to another candidate. 3) No is forever. Once someone has been passed over, you cannot go back. Given that one must make their selection before seeing all the "candidates", how can you maximize the probability that you select your best match? This problem combines ideas of probability, discrete optimization, and calculus.
