Let's get married

     I've been watching a popular Russian TV-show the days I was home. It's called "Let's get married". The idea of this show is to create a couple. There's a man or a woman who seeks for a mate with some specifics. He or she posts his formular on the site of the show, so the other registered people could see it. He is scheduled a date to come to the show afterwards, where "three experienced women" helps him select one of the three pretendents who come after their attention got caught by the one who had posted the formular.
     As one could imagine, the most of the people who come are the ones who have troubles in the "relationship field". Why am I telling all of these? I've caught myself guessing the choice the "seeker" would make every time.
     As the show is broadcasted in the evening, my parents, my sister and me usually watch it all together, making bets on who's going to be chosen by the seeker. It was particularly funny last night, when the "three experienced women" recommended the 1st pretendent and my parents and sister were sure that the seeker would take their advice, while I was sure that the young woman would choose the 3rd man. My parents and my sister made a bet with me- the loser would have had to wash all the dishes (yeah, it was the "right after dinner" time). I was so satisfied when the lady chose the 3rd man... :)))
     It just seems that the seekers never make their choice being driven by what they feel, but exclusively by rationality. It turns out that I rock rationality, though I'm not sure if it's a good thing. Has the spontaneity died? Does it make me a "calculated" person?
     I don't want to be "the rationalist" for my whole life. I want a person in my life who would make me irrational.
     It's not too much to ask, is it?

    1. I hope I won't test this theory- my opinion is that one marriage should be enough.

    1. Do you really think that posting nasty comments to my posts as "Anonymous" protects your identity? Dear clubmate, your language is too obvious- try not to contact me in real life anymore.Me being nice to you, even though you act as an ass, has just ended. Grow up and get your own life.
