eSynchrony wants to rebrand its name

to Compatibly or LunchConnect

Another eHarmony style copycat: eSynchrony  

Another eHarmony style copycat: MiMediaManzana (from Peru)

Another eHarmony style copycat: TeAmoRU (from Russia)

eDarling/EliteSingles (Affinitas GmbH.) are only copycats of eHarmony.


eHarmony Spanish version / ready / 3 months free
eHarmony, is a 15+++++ years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.  eHarmony is using the Big Five (Big5) normative test that was revealed as incomplete, incorrect and obsolete personality test. It was replaced by the Big Six a.k.a HEXACO test.
The Big Five (Big5) normative personality test is the biggest mistake Psychologists made since several years ago. The Big Five is also known as the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, a psychological model based on research by Paul Costa and Robert McCrae.   

Also eHarmony has no Scientific proof its algorithm is better than searching by your own!

As some of the subdomains of the main domains of the HEXACO model are different from the subdomains of the main domains of the Big Five model, it can not be simple added the scale of the Honesty-Humility factor to the Big Five model to upgrade the personality test to the HEXACO model.

".. the Big Five's Agreeableness and HEXACO's Agreeableness are not identical. The Big Five factors do not include an Honesty-Humility factor, but some of the characteristics belonging to Honesty-Humility are incorporated into the Big Five's Agreeableness factor. Although earlier investigations found only the Big Five factors, more recent studies conducted in various languages (including English) with larger sets of adjectives recovered six factors. "

I need to hammer your head and drill holes in your brain to make you understand Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the BIG 5 model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.
Also take into account women under hormonal treatment because several studies showed contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users. "Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle".
Please remember: Personality traits are highly stable in persons over 25 years old to 45 years old (the group of persons who could be most interested in serious online dating) They have only minor changes in personality (less than 1 interval in a normative test) and the 16PF5 test will not "see" them because the output of the 16PF5 test are 16 variables STens (Standard Tens) taking integer values from 1 to 10. STens divide the score scale into ten units. STens have the advantage that they enable results to be thought of in terms of bands of scores, rather than absolute raw scores. These bands are narrow enough to distinguish statistically significant differences between candidates, but wide enough not to over emphasize minor differences between candidates.
I think, legally, online dating sites using the Big Five model of personality could be considered a FRAUD because they are using an INCORRECT and incomplete model of personality.
