Many complaints about Match dot com suggest ... database is full of old & inactive profiles, scammers, fake profiles, etc!
Perhaps Only way to sustain that huge revenue is / WAS creating fake profiles from inside to entice customers to subscribe. ???

Remember last August 2011 when a U.S. Class Action Called Match a 'Scam' / More than 90% of potential dates are "phantoms," suit charged then Match had morphed its marketing campaign.

Tomer Garzberg explains his system of online dating, using data to find love ???

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2019/09/all-you-need-is-maths-man-using.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 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.

 

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.

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

- but no one is using the 16PF6 (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.

"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.

Improvement is not innovation!

 
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.

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."
