PAPER: What do you get when you make somebody else’s partner ....

"What do you get when you make somebody else’s partner your own? An analysis of relationships formed via mate poaching"
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092656614000750

At the beginning of this article we noted that about half of people surveyed in North America report that they have at some point succumbed to mate poaching attempts (Schmitt et al., 2004). In the present studies, between 10% and 30% of participants reported being involved in relationships that began when they left one romantic partner to be with another. This suggests to us that mate poaching is a common way that romantic relationships (both short- and long-term) form, making the understanding of how these types of relationships function important. In the present research, we present the first known evidence specific long-term disadvantages for individuals involved in relations that formed via mate poaching. More, however, needs to be done to understand how these disadvantages emerge, whether there are other disadvantages or even advantages associated with relationships that stem from mate poaching, and what the ultimate consequences of these disadvantages and advantages are, both for the relationships and for those involved in them.

The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 online dating sites but ...
no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!
no one is scientifically proven!

The professional network’s dating potential has not gone unnoticed by its users

eHarmony Inc. will launch "Elevated Careers" by next December 2014 (perhaps using the Big Five normative test to assess personality of members, as it uses at eHarmony's UK, USA, CA and AU sites).
The Big Five normative test had been recently proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.

I agree for matching job seekers with employers, the best predictor of job performance is always: personality!!!
The same for serious dating. The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 online dating sites but ...

Fresh article about MeetMe at Seeking Alpha

"Innovative Features Driving Record User Growth Should Unlock Shareholder Value"
http://seekingalpha.com/article/2431915-meetme-innovative-features-driving-record-user-growth-should-unlock-shareholder-value

MeetMe Investor Presentation

I wrote a comment saying:
Are you aware about other social discovery sites like Tinder, Badoo, Zoosk, Skout, AreYouInterested (AYI), HowAboutWe, Twoo, Twine, Hinge, LikeBright, even MySpace and others?
i.e. What I want to say, you can change the name "MeetMe" for Tinder, Badoo, Zoosk, Skout, AreYouInterested (AYI), HowAboutWe, Twoo, Twine, Hinge, LikeBright, even MySpace and others to make the same analysis. ... but my bet is: all social dating / social discovery sites are vaporware.

Tinder - IAC /// Internal investigation: Preliminary Results up to August 2014 ///

After further consideration and evaluation, nothing gonna happen, it was only a smoke trick,  the investigation was only a piece of toilet paper.
Am I right?
Tinder will collapse like the "Skout case with minors"

It should not be mistaken with the ORIGINAL iDate conference.

Anyway I hope  they can talk about the innovations the Online Dating Industry needs!

The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.

OnlinePersonalsWatch forgot its own 10th Birthday

http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/news/2014/08/onlinepersonalswatch-celebrates-10th-birthday.html

I remember I began to read OPW last May 2005.

Soon, this August 22th 2014,  eHarmony will turn 14 years old!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EHarmony
eHarmony, is a 14 years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/05/ibisworld-analyst-eharmony-is-forecast.html
The Big Five normative test that had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
The Big Five normative test had been replaced by HEXACO or Big Six test.

C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/01/from-idate2004-to-idate2013-final.html
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.
Wasting precious time with Matchmakers which should be obsolete.
The Online Dating Industry needs to kill the Matchmaking Industry, like computers killed typewriters.
Worldwide there are less than 7 million paid members (adding up all the ones at eHarmony/EliteSingles/eDarling, Match, Chemistry, Meetic, MeeticAffinity, OkCupid, PeopleMedia’s Communities, PlentyOfFish, Parship/eCift, and others).

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites
but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!
but no one is scientifically proven!

The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlation with quantized patterns.

Without offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.
