Online dating has been around since the mid-1960s and has grown into a highly differentiated number of sites and businesses in many countries, including industrializing economies such as China and India. Sites uses a series of different algorithms to match people, and people can choose among boutique or huge sites, but all sites ask basic questions such as height, weight and age to use for matching. Safety concerns are real but manageable, and while finding a partner on line has become increasingly acceptable, many people find online dating hard, not rewarding, or just exhausting.

"online dating" is a broad concept to define a large group of different proposals.

The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
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!
actual online dating site is "scientifically proven" because no one
can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who
will have more stable and satisfying relationships -and very low divorce rates- than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal
preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control
group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.
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.
