The Chemistry of Dating (2007)

Ryan is an average college student who has always been very unlucky with dating and relationships. He is starting school for the year and he finds himself in an intro chemistry class. Though the class is quite a blow off, he becomes inspired by some of the professor’s words. He decides to formulate an experiment using things he learns in his chemistry class to try to figure out the science behind dating. He gives himself two weeks to try and find out what he wants in a girl, as well as how to go about finding the perfect one for him. Ryan learns some things the hard way, but in the end, he knows one thing for sure: dating is all about chemistry.
