DNA matching and virtual reality: The world of online dating in 2040 ?
Love is not in the air
The 3 milestone discoveries of the 2001 - 2010 decade for Theories of Romantic Relationships Development are:
I) Several studies showing 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"
People often report partner preferences that are not compatible with
their choices in real life. (Behavioural recommender systems or other
system that learns your preferences are useless)
III) What is
important in attracting people to one another may not be important in
making couples happy. Compatibility is all about a high level on
personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY, and not "meet other people with similar interests"
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.
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"
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.
