An uncountable number of online dating sites offer assistance for those seeking out their once only soul mate. Some mount advertising campaigns, while others are more specialised and target certain niche groups or lifestyles. Once on the site, singles can seek out love through any criteria such as appearance, level of fitness, age, sexual leaning, whether they own or love pets, marital status, political affiliations and so on.
Many subscription only sites provide a matching service, stating that they can match people through scientific study, mathematical calculations and suitability tests. However, a fee is levied for this service and it is not part of many introductory offers.
A new study reveals that when online dating the user should take care, as a group of psychologists recently revealed evidence that there is no sound scientific proof that gives a good answer for assisting matchmaking. In actual fact, scientists, who have been paid to study relationships for many years, state that it is quite impossible to decide whether any two people are likely to be suitable based purely on information they have put on their profiles before they have actually met.
However, what these sites have really done is to alter the method many people use to meet and date, but there are some advantages to joining. Online dating site users have more access to likely partners and they get to meet a greater selection of individuals that they may not have met in any other way. They can communicate with selected people safely and easily. It also helps to save online daters the trouble of finding a relationship that might not be suitable.
The study found that the biggest hole in matchmaking services is that users do not tell the truth on their profiles so any possible match making processes are, of course, thrown into doubt. The only real answer is that as more and more people sign up for dating sites, there is a greater chance of matching up the ideal partners.
