Are the compatibility figures in online dating sites a myth or a fact?
We have reported in earlier posts about the big deal that many dating sites make regarding the algorithms that they employ to find your best matches. Although, we at Jumpdates feel that these can be useful aids to some online daters to find compatible matches, we do not think that they are the ‘holy grail’ to your compatible match.
We have covered many posts on the innate nature of human beings when it comes to relationships, marriage, gender differences and the many unique qualities that make all of us different. In addition to the complexity of each individual, add the unique relationship of the two individuals on top of this and we end up with an exceptionally intricate ‘union’ that cannot be determined through quantitative analysis alone.

We also know that human beings also have an innate ability to change within, so how does that ‘impact’ the relationship. Most likely, it will throw a curveball in the entire relationship in the eyes of your partner and the relationship will need adapting to. There are just too many factors for online dating sites to claim they have a perfect system with regards to compatibility, it’s just not possible.
What dating sites can work towards instead, is to promote and ‘open’ the eyes of members to greater possibilities. Provide them with the necessary tools for them to locate the partner they are looking for and let them decide what will work for them. Dating sites by all means will always provide an excellent platform to engage many singletons together to find their meaningful relationship and this will continue to grow for years to come. However, we should all be realistic to how far we can really pair up couples since this communion can only be really understood by the couples themselves.
