"A computer just acquired a typewriter to innovate?" (PlentyOfFish Acquires FastLife)
Worldwide there are less than 7 million paid members (adding
up all the ones at eHarmony, Match, Chemistry, Meetic,
MeeticAffinity, OkCupid, PeopleMedia's Communities, PlentyOfFish,
Parship/eCift, and others). The market remains enormous for new players.
Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective, more efficient.
Online Dating for serious daters does not need to go offline. That is a complete waste of time.
READ: Two papers debunking speeddating for serious dating:
chance for mating with a speed-dating partner was 6%, and was increased
by men's short-term mating interest; the chance for relating was 4%,
and was increased by women's long-term mating interest.
way of looking at the probabilities of 6% and 4% is to convert them
into time and money spent on multiple speeddating events, assuming
independence of the outcomes of each event. Assuming that one has to pay
30 Euros for a speed-dating event lasting 3 hours including everything,
finding a relationship partner requires investing 75 hours and 750
Euros on average."

in 2013 I think C-Level executives from the Online Dating Industry do
not want to innovate and offer a high effective/efficiency compatibility
matching algorithm, because they are like burglars who are stealing the money
of the daters, they scam daters with automatic rebilling trickery.
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
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.
