PAPER cited there, "A Third of Recently Married Couples Met Online" is biased/failed.
eHarmony delivers matches as a machine gun shooting flowers (good for nothing, useless).
eHarmony, is a 14+ years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
The Big Five normative test had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.

Why Your (IPSATIVE MBTI) Personality Type Doesn't Matter - eHarmony Advice
eHarmony is not 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.

Personality Distribution Curves using the NORMATIVE 16PF5

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 key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY, but ...
the only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.

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", not 100% better, 100X better, really an INNOVATION.
The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.
