The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion

03 Jun

“Gene and Claudia tried for a while to assist me with the Wife Problem. Unfortunately, their approach was based on the traditional dating paradigm, which i had previously abandoned on the basis that the probability of success did not justify the effort and negative experiences.

I am thirty-nine years old, tall, fit and intelligent, with Rosiea relatively high status and above-average income as an associate professor. Logically, i should be attractive to a wide range of women. In the animal kingdom, i would succeed in reproducing.

However, there is something about me that women find unappealing. I have never found it easy to make friends, and it seems that the deficiencies that caused this problem have also affected my attempts at romantic relationships.”
