Social dating is vaporware.
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 and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance.
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "a 100 times better improvement"
