Economists had published lots of rubbish papers for the Online Dating Industry.
The Online Dating Industry does not need any improvement. It does need INNOVATIONS!
Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient. It needs to reduce the false positives problem.
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
With less than USD10 Million you can copycat eHarmony
innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry, killing those old & obsolete sites forever.
The 8 tips to innovate in the Online Dating Industry!
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 prospective mates.)
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 !
