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"

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.

Please see also the paper:
Who’s chasing whom? The impact of gender and relationship status on mate poaching.

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!
