Love Geometry 101

titleYou’re probably scratching your head, wondering what on earth love* geometry even is. I’ll explain. Love geometry is a concept that deviates from the traditional concept of geometry to determine the probabilities of matches getting together in real life or the fictional world.

Let me give you a brief tutorial so that you too can say that you are competent in the study of love geometry (Trust me, this will apply to your life a whole lot more than the Pythagorean Theorem.) This is lesson one of a series of posts about love geometry. Part two will be here next week.

Let’s start with the basics.

The purpose of love geometry, as a whole, is to predict the probabilities of matches getting together. This lesson will cover the easiest type of relationships to predict the probabilities of.

The purpose of any love geometry problem is either:

a) To establish a love line (I’ll explain further down) or

b) If a love line cannot be made, we can establish the probabilities of matches to be.

I could keep explaining in words, but geometry is a visual subject, and love geometry is quite the same. So let’s walk through a basic example.

First, we need people. In love geometry, we assign points to people. I’ve got an Ashley, Brian, Catherine, and a David. In other words, points A, B, C, and D (shown in Figure 1)

Now, we need to figure out the basic shape that the relationships form. This is easy to identify. There are four people/points, so this will have four sides, a quadrilateral (Figure 1.2). At this point we don’t need to figure out the distance of the sides (This will be covered in a later lesson.), just the basic shape.

Next, we must determine the relationships of the people. A really likes C, who, sadly, is “madly in love” with D. D likes C, kind of, and lastly, B thinks A is cute. Remember what I said before, that the purpose of any love geometry problem is to establish a love line? Well a love line is the line (properly named because, obviously, their love continues infinitely in both directions) that is formed when two people like each other. Anyone else involved in the love geometry problem is now irrelevant.** In this example, C and D like each other, forming a love line. The other two are irrelevant. If the other two liked each other as well, however, two love lines would be formed as a result (This would be an ideal configuration, but unfortunately, rarely happens in real life.)

And….Tada!!

Love line: ESTABLISHED! Woot! So there’s one love geometry problem under your belt! Unfortunately…that’s the easiest kind of example that there is in love geometry. People are complicated, and any kind of study of interpersonal relationships will be complicated as well. In cases where we can’t establish a love line, we have to establish the probability that a pair will get together. And that, my friends, is for another post. Baby steps, guys. The next lesson will be about the all important Closeness Scale. Stay tuned! If you have any questions about what I’ve explained so far, feel free to leave a comment!

 

*So “Love geometry” is kind of misleading. Attraction isn’t love. Don’t confuse the two. This would be more properly named “Attraction Geometry” but it just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

**This does not account for changes of heart, in which the other members of the shape or even a point outside the plane can end up being together, contrary to the predicted match. Remember that love geometry is here to establish probabilities, not to predict the future.
