Got a fella or a gal? Felling secure? Well, your relationship may be like a aradioactive nucleus, just waiting for somebody to come along and knock it nto a decayed state. Here's the explanation: Successful couples are said to have chemistry, but a study by an Oxford graduate suggests that dating may actually have more to do with physics.
Richard Ecob adapted a system for modelling atoms in radioactive decay to investigate how we look for partners.
He found that "super daters", people who have many short relationships, have a good effect on others' lives.
This is because they break up weak couples, forcing their victims to find better relationships.
