Dating someone with the same birthday astrology
But that doesn’t really satisfy the question for me, it just feels marginally less screwy.So I did something quite out of character: I crunched the numbers.
i have dated a guy with the same birthday as me and we are very different.I have never had a very good relationship with Mathematics. I thought that perhaps I was just a bit put off by Math’s confident demeanor and superior attitude, and by its tendency to micromanage every tiny detail of my universe.But over time I have come to the realization that I’m not the source of the problem. Consider the following example: Assuming for a moment that birthdays are evenly distributed throughout the year, if you’re sitting in a room with forty people in it, what are the chances that two of those people have the same birthday? A reasonable, intelligent person might point out that the odds don’t reach 100% until there are 366 people in the room (the number of days in a year 1)… so such a person might conclude that the odds of two people in forty sharing a birthday are about 11%.In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
I share the same birthdate as my boyfriend, same date but also same year, our births are seperated by merely 5 hours or so.
Traditional astrology would be against the idea, the premise being there is little challenge or opportunity for growth.
But this really doesn’t hold up in reality because if you are a difficult challenging person and so is he…
If you had that probability, P(Same day and same year) = P(Same year) $\times$ P(Same day|same year).
But P(same day) should be roughly independent of whether you were born in the same year.
This means that with only sixty people in a room, even though there are 365 possible birthdays, it is almost certain that two people have a birthday on the same day.
