Silly humour surveys from eHarmony

eHarmony Premium, new feature / option from eHarmony

eHarmony closed eH+ and ElevatedCareers and now offers a new silly option, at USD 30 per month, nobody will care?
eHarmony is a 16+ years old obsolete site and a big fraud. 

The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%. (via reverse engineering by Fernando Ardenghi)
eHarmony is only supported by a big marketing budget and not by serious scientific evidence.
Please be alerted The Big Five normative personality test used by eHarmony, had been revealed as incorrect and incomplete model of personality. Now it is obsolete and a fraud to use it.

Two years ago:
eHarmony to Launch Globalization Initiative; Company Expects Subscriber Base to Grow 40-50% in 2015


Very easy to copycat eHarmony, but very difficult to innovate: a 100 times better algorithm than eHarmony.

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The Big Five normative personality test is obsolete, it has been proven as an incomplete and incorrect model of personality.
The HEXACO (a.k.a. Big Six) is another oversimplification. 

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.

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 (five thousand) online dating sites
but no one is using the 16PF5 (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!!!
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.


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"

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.

The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
