Over 4 trillion females?! You may have a difficult time at that. There are only 3 billion or so on the planet. And they aren't all available.
actually it didn't specify a gender nor did it really speciy a species, though nayt might have made that assumption. I suppose there might be enough roaches [Razz] .........Z

I refuse to use that calculator on the basis that I am certain the results would just be too goddamn depressing to deal with.

And yet I keep trying. Silly boy.

You have to meet 7 American single females who are between 18 and 22 years old who are living in your city or willing to move there.

Huzzah!

Lemme see... in the past two years, I have met about... mmm... two girls... and at that rate... I won't meet 7 before I graduate. Oh well, guess I'll have to start over.

I was able to get between 214 and 254 American females who are between 21 and 25 who are living in my city or are willing to move. With a little tweaking I bet I could get an even lower number based on age and proximity alone. Very interesting...

On another note, the site has a summation on the top left corner as follows:
<sum>(i=0, n) (Solve)^dating

Now, if we "Solve" where it says "Solve" and dating is some amount of dating it would seem we would arrive at some constant. I may be mistaken but I believe if this is true we can rearrange the summation so it is as follows:
(Solve)^dating * <sum>(i=0, n) (1)
Where Solve and dating are now some Constants which we arrived at when "Solving"

This looks like the simple summation we used when we were learning inductive proofs in CS so I am going to get rid of the summation with the following:
<sum>(i=0, n) (1) = n(n-1)/2
thus we have:
(Solve)^dating * n(n-1)/2

Now I am guessing the summation is suppose to "result" in a "Soulmate" so we now have an equation to play with:
(Solve)^dating * n(n-1)/2 = Soulmate

Since (Solve)^dating is suppose to be a constant (see above) I will use C to represent whatever this number may be.
C * n(n-1)/2
Rearranging the equation we can arrive at:
n(n-1)/2 = Soulmate/C

I think we can see now where this is going so my question is... what is n? Furthermore, how does the number from the "Soulmate Calculator" figure into this?

[Edit] <sum> is in place of the sigma which didn't seem to post correctly [Mad]
