Astrology HOAX

If a person's life begins at conception time and not at the moment of birth, calculating the astrological destiny from the moment of birth is a hoax!
Astrological destiny was invented in ancient times when there were no Genetics, no Psychology.
With astrological destiny, fraternal (dizygotic) twins like a boy and a girl should have nearly the same destiny, but fraternal (dizygotic) twins have different genetics and personality.
A pregnant woman can select when her baby is born, natural birth or cesarean.
A pregnant woman can travel to another place some weeks before giving birth, she can change the location, e.g. from North America to South America (different stars in the sky)
What will happen if in a near future a colony could live in Moon or Mars? Astrology can not calculate its predictions.
No actual site offering astrological matching can demonstrate its proprietary predictive matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships with low divorce rates than couples matched by chance, high personality similarity (with Big5 and Dyadic Adjustment Scale) between mates, personal preferences, searching on one’s own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed paper.
All astrological destiny and astrological matching is a big hoax.

Match flawed new study.

Match flawed new study.

If you carefully analyze the data, that study only proves that "Via Online Dating Site" is not the primary source to find a long term mate.

Method of meeting spouse (Via Online Dating Site)
2004 12%
2005 13%
2006 15%
2007 17%
2008 19% (highest value)
2009/2010 17%
Past 3 Years 17%

"Approximately twice as many recently married couples met on Match than the site thatranked second (eHarmony)" They should check marital stability and marital satisfaction, not only marriage itself! Are divorce rates higher in Match than in eHarmony?

Moreover, sites like Match/Chemisty, eHarmony, True, PerfectMatch, Be2, MeeticAffinity, Parship, PlentyOfFishChemistryPredictor and others have low effectiveness / efficiency of their proprietary predictive matching methods for LONG TERM mating

OKcupid flawed article

"Why You Should Never Pay For Online Dating"

That article only proves that actual paid online dating sites have low effectiveness / efficiency of their proprietary predictive matching methods for LONG TERM mating. Nothing more. That article does not prove that free sites are BETTER than paid sites.

Moreover free sites are good for fun dating (instant gratifications, flirting, short term mating) and free sites exist to leverage paid sites.

Match wants you using Chemistry

Match wants you using Chemistry, not Match any more!!!

Chemistry and eHarmony similar/shared interests feature

Chemistry and eHarmony show you, your similar/shared interests with other persons when you see their profiles.

From the Official Blog of eHarmony
August 11, 2009
"Remember, you will still only receive matches based on eHarmony's 29 Dimensions of Compatibility – we don't send you matches based solely on these common interests. That said, when you do receive a match and you do share common interests, you'll already have a great topic on which to strike up a conversation."

and Chemistry uses the new "Hidden Chemistry Weekly Questions" feature, but Chemistry also uses those questions to "improve" your matches.
