OkCupid research: RUBBISH
Please DO NOT trust research conducted by OkCupid.
It is all rubbish, severely biased.
Please see how the majority of OKCupid’s free users are big liars and cheaters, you cannot trust in what they say or do!!!
October 26th, 2009
46% of men and 30% of women say they are a genius, they think they are one in a thousand!
OkCupid is for fun dating, for entertainment purposes, for instant gratifications; not for serious dating.
The 3 milestone discoveries of the 2001 - 2010 decade for Theories of Romantic Relationships Development are:
I) Several studies showing contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users. "Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"
II) People often report partner preferences that are not compatible with their choices in real life. (Behavioural recommender systems or other system that learns your preferences are useless for online dating purposes)
III) What is important in attracting people to one another may not be important in making couples happy. Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment.
WorldWide, there are over 5,000 online dating sites but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar test) to assess personality of its members.
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
