Mathematician Theo has studied the equation and the
answer to why he's never had a girlfriend is clear.
"I've never figured out how to actually start a conversation with
the opposite sex," he explains. "I don't know how to talk to girls.
It would be great if I could figure out how to talk to girls."
The son of a doctor and an alternative medicine therapist,
Theo says he always grew up around intelligent people.
"I've never known anyone who's academically-challenged. I
don't know how to relate to them.
"And well, intellect's done nothing for me in terms of love. It's
seems to abandon me, frankly."
Four years into his Bachelor of Mathematics, Theo has a 97.5
per cent average and can't sprout his passion for the subject
"Mathematics is the ultimate past-time. The stimulation, as I often
describe it, is just one big logic puzzle. And it just never ends."
Theo admits he often spends hours alone pondering
mathematical problems. And that might be where he'll retreat
to if he feels uncomfortable around the beauties in the house.
"But this is probably the peak of my geekiness at this time
and I'm ready to embrace it."
Other than maths, Theo's other main interest is playing
"I've got a sizeable video game collection. On the PC I've
got more than 300 games," he enthuses.
While Theo would love to become a mathematics professor, he
isn't too sure about teaching the beauties the wonders of his work.
"The thing I fear most genuinely is to somehow revolutionise
teaching mathematics to people who are not traditionally
very good at it.
"Other than that, I'm worried about offending the girls because
I've had incidents before where I've talked to women and said
something that I realised later was possibly insensitive."
