TechCrunch article about "Swiped: Hooking Up in the Digital Age"
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/09/techcrunch-article-about-swiped-hooking.html


"Mr Right or Ms Right" or "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfectmatch" 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 you
"Mr Right or Ms Right"  or "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfectmatch".
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.


The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests or political views". 
 

 WorldWide, there are over 5,000 (five thousand) online dating sites:
 

- but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
 

- but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
 

- but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!!! i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

- but no one is scientifically proven!  No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships (and very low divorce rates) than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.

USA ROSCA by BBB: Subscription Traps and Deceptive Free Trials



Scam Millions with Misleading Ads and Fake Celebrity Endorsements
https://www.bbb.org/globalassets/local-bbbs/st-louis-mo-142/st_louis_mo_142/studies/bbb-study-free-trial-offers-and-subscription-traps.pdf
... eHarmony and other companies have paid millions in settlements to resolve class-action lawsuits alleging that they were automatically renewing subscriptions without consumer consent.

Match user alleges site spams paying users with fake profiles

eHarmony pays USD 1.2 million to settle auto-renewal lawsuit

Spark Networks USA, LLC will pay USD 500,000 in penalties
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/10/spark-networks-usa-llc-will-pay-usd.html

I agree that the Online Dating Industry is selling elixirs, tonics, snake oil liniments and other patent medicine and performing like the Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry before the USA Food and Drug Administration was created where any player can make any claim without any credentials.

eHarmony's CEO Discusses Artifical Intelligence ?
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/10/eharmonys-ceo-discusses-artifical.html

It is all a HOAX, a FRAUD.

He mistakes Artifical Intelligence with a Behavioural Recommender System!
 
eHarmony should be closed forever for fraud!
The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is ONLY a 18+  years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
The Big Five normative test used by eHarmony, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
It is a HOAX, a FRAUD to use the Big Five normative test in year 2018.
