    Unhappy "True Love"

    Hi!
    Could anyone please tell me if there's anything available (I mean comments, summaries, worksheets, reviews, hints on reading, lesson plans,...) about this short story by Isaac Asimov? I' afraid I wasn't able to find anything!I know this is not his best SF story, anyway I need something to work on it...please!

    Thanks you all!

    Wikipedia Library > Reference > Wikipedia True Love (Asimov)
    True Love is a science fiction short story written by Isaac Asimov. It was first published in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

    Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
    Milton Davis is trying to find his ideal partner. To do this, he instructs his computer (named Joe), which has access to databases covering the entire populace of the world, to find him his ideal match, based on physical parameters supplied.

    He meets the shortlisted candidates, but realises that looks alone are not enough to find an ideal match. In order to correlate personalities, he speaks at great length to Joe, gradually filling Joe's databanks with information about his personality.

    In doing so, Joe develops the personality of Milton, and upon finding an ideal match, arranges to have Milton arrested, so that Joe can 'have the girl' for himself.

    You're welcome. It isn't much but it's the only thing I found.
