 "The chemistry of lasting love is still a mystery, perhaps one that science will never solve. "
Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment, 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."

Blockchain Dating App Viola.AI Is Targeting USD17M In The ICO ???



http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/news/2017/12/blockchain-dating-app-violaai-is-targeting-17m-in-the-ico.html

"Think of Viola, which the company refers to as a "she," as a dating adviser that can provide users with an analysis of their personality and compatibility, which they say can improve relationships, as well as real ID verification of users on the platform."
Viola.AI can not and will not outperform WATSON IBM

Soulmates.ai launches to help brands find compatible influencers using AI
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/05/soulmatesai-launches-to-help-brands.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 16PF5 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 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

about DNA matching Instant Chemistry and SingldOut partnership
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/07/about-dna-matching-instant-chemistry.html


Genetic Matchmaking is mainly  based on the T_shirt Experiment that only proved:
normally cycling women (not pregnant and not taking contraceptive pills) are (temporarily) attracted by the perspiration scent of clothes used by men with a Major Histocompatibility Complex MHC more dissimilar to theirs,

and not proved: women attracted by those men for long term mating with commitment.
and
2 Scientific Papers debunk their claims.
1) "Human oestrus" Gangestad & Thornhill (2008)
"Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"

2) "Does the contraceptive pill alter mate choice in humans?" Alvergne & Lummaa (2009)
".. whereas normally cycling women express a preference for MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex) dissimilarity in mates, pill users prefer odours of MHC-SIMILAR men, indicating that pill use might eliminate adaptive preferences for genetic dissimilarity."
................
"...., Roberts et al. attempted to eliminate these potential confounds by adopting a within-subject design in which women's mate preferences were assessed before and after they began taking the pill. Women starting the pill showed a significant preference shift towards MHC SIMILARITY compared with three months before the pill was taken, a shift that was not observed in the control group of normally cycling women."

Please remember personality = temperament + character
Personality is composed of two basic types of traits:
traits that an individual acquires, dimensions of character;
and
traits with biological underpinnings, dimensions of temperament (Cloninger 1987)

The key to long-lasting romance; COMPATIBILITY is: STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.


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"

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.

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.
Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment, 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."

ArsTechnica article: OkCupid's rapid Tinder-ization

Dating app Hinge rolls out a new feature to reduce ‘ghosting’ ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/12/dating-app-hinge-rolls-out-new-feature.html

When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (6+ years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission.
IAC / Match Group "acquired" HatchLabs to "develop" Tinder copycat of Badoo.
Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back and destroy Tinder (last December 2014).

  


Recently Match Group launched a new online dating application for Hispanics in USA, named Chispa.

Social dating is vaporware.

NEW FEATURE: Tinder is testing a feed of real-time updates
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/12/new-feature-tinder-is-testing-feed-of.html

Tinder, Match, Meetic, Ourtime, PlentyOfFish, MeetMe (MEET), Hinge, Happn, CoffeeMeetsBagel, OKCupid, Bumble, Zoosk, and many more: in a WAR between themselves, no one will win!

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.

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"

It’s been more than a year since Hinge’s relaunch.

WallY is only behavioural recommender system and NOT AI


http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/online-dating-website-sentimentecom-launches-personalized-dashboard-using-wally---artificial-intelligence-for-real-love-665429653.html

 Sentimente, one of the most important players on the online dating market in South-Eastern Europe, launched in mid-November a new version of the platform, based on Artificial Intelligence.

Please do not mistake "artificial intelligence" with
  a behavioural recommender system 


Same as 

Tinder "Super Likeable" feature uses AI to figure out who you're likely to Super Like.

is only a Behavioural Recommender System like Synapse from Match or UltraMatch from PlentyOfFish (POF) and Behavioural Recommender Systems CAN NOT outperform compatibility matching engines based on personality similarity.
