Odds of Alien Contact > Odds of Girlfriend?

Stealing the Wolowitz Coefficient (see the comments in the linked article), a variation of the Drake Equation used to predict the odds of contacting an alien civilization, a British mathematician has estimated that there are 26 women in the UK he could date.

You can see his math in the article here.

Of course, he leaves something out. What are the odds any of those 26 will be interested in him?
