article: Why online dating is waste of time

Websites can predict friends but not who you will fancy

about article: Dating? A magic formula to predict attraction is more elusive than ever
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/08/about-article-dating-magic-formula-to.html




Lack Of Innovation and Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry.
C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.

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"

II) 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 with commitment, and not meet other people with similar interests or political views.


At the paper  "Perceptions of Ideal and Former Partners' Personality and Similarity
The authors had written
".... mismatches in personality are a frequently mentioned cause for relationship break-up. If former partners indeed have dissimilar personalities, our findings underline how difficult it is for many people to select a mate with a similar personality, or, alternatively, how little value individuals put on finding a similar partner in terms of personality.
The present study's results, as well as the results found in previous studies (e.g., Eastwick & Finkel, 2008), may be used to educate people, especially singles, about what really matters in long-term relationships, for instance, similarity in personality, instead of complementarity."


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"

about article: eHarmony's much-needed redesign saves it from being 'antiquated'

http://www.digitalartsonline.co.uk/news/graphic-design/eharmonys-much-needed-redesign-saves-it-from-being-antiquated/

eHarmony is a 17+ years old obsolete site The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is only supported by a big marketing budget and not by serious scientific evidence.
The Big Five normative test used by eHarmony and its copycats, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
Now it is a HOAX, a FRAUD to use it (year 2017)

eHarmony is in big war with its copycat, EliteSingles since May 2012, after former eHarmony's CEO refused to fully acquire its mother company Affinitas GmbH.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/08/coo-von-betreiber-affinitas-im-neuen.html


eHarmony CEO and article "The Online Dating Industry is Growing and Evolving"
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/07/eharmony-ceo-and-article-online-dating.html
eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like
the online dating sites EliteSingles in Canada, Australia, USA, UK, Chile, Mexico; eDarling in Spain, German, France, Russia;
also TeAmo in Russia is another copycat of eHarmony;
esync (eSynchrony) in Singapore,
MiMediaManzana in Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Chile, etc.,
Marrily in India
and now
LemonSwan in Germany and other countries.


Very easy to copycat eHarmony, but very difficult to innovate: a 100 times better algorithm than eHarmony.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/10/very-easy-to-copycat-eharmony-but-very.html


Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five 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.

about article: Dating? A magic formula to predict attraction is more elusive than ever



https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/08/170830132200.htm
The one or your soulmate or the perfect match does not exist!
It will only exist a pool of compatible persons, not more than that.
No online dating site can promise you to find "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfect match".
Moreover the person you are looking for does not exist or if it exist, he/she does not want to meet you because your are not compatible.

BIASED and wrong article about online dating: Love really is a numbers game
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/08/biased-and-wrong-article-about-online.html


What is important in attracting people to one another may not be important in making couples happy. The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests or political views".

Bumble revenue in the range of USD 150 Million for 2018



via FastCompany

https://www.fastcompany.com/40456526/bumbles-ceo-takes-aim-at-linkedin

Please remember Bumble is backed and powered by Badoo.

Bumble DID NOT Turn Down USD 450 Million Buyout Offer From Match Group
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/08/bumble-did-not-turn-down-usd-450.html

More about Bumble - Match Group war
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/08/more-about-bumble-match-group-war.html

Be alerted, be informed Bumble is backed by Badoo (80%, majority-owned by Badoo)

It is said Badoo is related to Russian mafia of white hat hackers in the spyware business.
Badoo is in big war with Tinder (Match Group)

When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (6+ years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission.
IAC / Match Group "acquired" HatchLabs to "develop" Tinder copycat of Badoo.
Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back and destroy Tinder (last December 2014).

Social dating is vaporware. 

Perhaps Badoo plans to incinerate Match in revenge? If they hacked Match Group databases and can demonstrate  Match Group does really create fake profiles from inside to entice customers to subscribe, ala OKCupid lawsuit.

Spark Networks Files Registration Statement With SEC Over Affinitas GmbH. Merger


Match Group is 10 times bigger than Spark + Affinitas merge in revenue.
eHarmony is 2 or 3 times bigger than Spark + Affinitas merge in revenue and eHarmony has 750,000 paid subscribers and Affinitas in the range of 380,000.

EliteSingles / eDarling sites are only copycats of eHarmony.
A prospective client will not perceive eDarling / EliteSingles sites as better, superior or different than eHarmony's ones. eHarmony has about 750,000 paid subscribers and 10 million active users, which has been steady for the past five years. 

eHarmony's sites are 3 times bigger in active users and revenue than EliteSingles's sites.
And worse, Affinitas GmbH. can not beat and will never beat eHarmony Inc. in United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and United States.

about article: Online dating sucks because of the algorithms not the people

https://qz.com/1058013/online-dating-sucks-because-of-the-algorithms-not-the-people/



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"

II) 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 with commitment, and not meet other people with similar interests or political views.
 



Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences)

That is the only way to improve recommender systems, to include the personality traits of their users.

They need to calculate personality similarity between users but there are different formulas to calculate similarity.

In case you did not notice, recommender systems are morphing to compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry for years, with low success rates until now because they mostly use the Big Five model to assess personality and the Pearson correlation coefficient to calculate similarity.
Please remember: Personality traits are highly stable in persons over 25 years old to 45 years old. 


Which is the RIGHT approach to innovate in the Personality Based Recommender Systems Arena?
 
The same approach to innovate in the Online Dating Industry == 16PF5 test or similar to assess personality traits and a new method to calculate similarity between quantized patterns.
Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five 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.

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

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"

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo
