Here are three things to know about this week's show:

1. Sorry, single folks. Even computers are better at flirting than you. Melissa Dahl of New York Magazine shows how scientists taught computers the social cues you never picked up on.

2. Biology and physics classes are way more boring and difficult than they should be. Science educator Ainissa Ramirez tells us what STEM classes need to change, and why teaching the next generation of scientists is so important.

3. Forget every romantic comedy ever. Apparently, most older men aren't actually that interested in dating around. Sociologist Pepper Schwarz and OkCupid co-founder Christian Rudder explain what else online dating reveals about us.
