Can Match You With Dates Who Will Smell Sexy
article at TechCrunch.
that proposal is a HOAX, a big FRAUD in the Online Dating Industry.
Genetic Matchmaking is mainly based on the T_shirt Experiment that only proved:
cycling women (not pregnant and not taking contraceptive pills) are
(temporarily) attracted by the perspiration scent of clothes used by men
with a Major Histocompatibility Complex MHC more dissimilar to theirs,
and not proved: women attracted by those men for long term mating with commitment.
2 Scientific Papers debunk their claims.
1) "Human oestrus" Gangestad & Thornhill (2008)
"Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"
2) "Does the contraceptive pill alter mate choice in humans?" Alvergne & Lummaa (2009)
whereas normally cycling women express a preference for MHC (Major
Histocompatibility Complex) dissimilarity in mates, pill users prefer
odours of MHC-SIMILAR men, indicating that pill use might eliminate
adaptive preferences for genetic dissimilarity."
Roberts et al. attempted to eliminate these potential confounds by
adopting a within-subject design in which women's mate preferences were
assessed before and after they began taking the pill. Women starting the
pill showed a significant preference shift towards MHC SIMILARITY
compared with three months before the pill was taken, a shift that was
not observed in the control group of normally cycling women."
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY.
