"Magic Lab's move will be interesting to watch" says analyst from Online Dating Industry
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2019/06/magic-labs-move-will-be-interesting-to.html


Matchmakers should be obsolete.  
The Online Dating Industry needs to kill the Matchmaking Industry, like computers killed typewriters.
 
The Online Dating Industry needs INNOVATIONS, not more bells and whistles.
Lack Of Innovation & 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.

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF6 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

Online romance scammers are busy stealing money and hearts across the United States.




https://edition.cnn.com/2019/08/23/us/online-romance-scams-losses-trnd/index.html

USA Americans lost USD 143 Million in online romance scams last year. That's way more than any other reported fraud

Woman loses USD300K to Match.com romance scam ???
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2019/08/woman-loses-usd300k-to-matchcom-romance.html


Please remember also: In the case of Yuliana Avalos and Melissa Midwest former 2014 big lawsuit againts Match Group, third-party scammers in Africa or wherever were creating fake profiles and catfishing with them.
IAC and Match Group were essentially aware of that situation and did nothing to stop it.
The USA Court ruled that IAC and Match Group were not responsible.
Attorney Evan Spencer, said that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match Group failed to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that Yuliana Avalos's pictures were being used hundreds of times.
Yuliana Avalos has argued in a former 2014 big lawsuit against Match that photos of her were posted without her permission on the site as part of a scam that drove a man to commit suicide.

eHarmony, 20 years old OBSOLETE site

eHarmony is ONLY a 20 years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.

eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like
the online dating sites EliteSingles / SilverSingles 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
LemonSwan in Germany and other countries. 

 
The Five Factor Model aka 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.

The Online Dating Industry needs INNOVATIONS, not more bells and whistles.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/01/mistakes-at-behavioral-economics-of.html

Breaking "the online dating sound barrier" is to achieve at least:
3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!


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.
The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY 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."

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 16PF6 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.
