The State of Free matchmaking sites in California - part 2
Saturday, January 19th, 2013
To get a full appreciation of the online dating market, one needs to go to these venues to find out the many unique ways that this market is developing. No doubt, many will be talking about Facebook’s interest in entering this long established business. Last year’s topics were very much on the mobile arena and this year we can expect these discussions to continue. The most important aspect of this market will be the users behavior towards dating sites, their perceptions and how they use it. Ultimately, it all boils down to how the end users are going to make a choice about online dating sites as a means of fulfilling their own requirements.
In addition the seriousness of this business in coupling singles together for a long term vested interest, there is another bigger pie in this business world that has proven to be very lucrative. The business of adult dating has always been around since the day when online dating came into the mainstream. These sites that cater to the whimsical needs of singles who are driven by their own libido than anything else have always proved to be lucrative. Sites which border between what is considered morally good and just plain sex site such as AshleyMadison have also caught the eyes of many. Expect to see many of these services being offered through the smartphone apps.
2013 will be the year where California will be home to more innovative products and services offered in the online dating market. However, expect the market to be more volatile with more players coming and going and a few of the bigger players hitting an all time high.

Gender Differences - Understanding the dual nature of reactivity & proactivity - Part 1
That being said, unless you have a large body of interests with your partner, you are most likely to fall into one of the two categories in the relationship. Though I could be wrong, since numerous closed studies would be needed between couples in order to elucidate the following facts. One of the individuals within the relationships will need to take on each of the roles ie. reactivity and proactivity. In many relationships where the men are the most masculine and the strongest of the genders, the role of proactivity may go to them whereas the females will have a more reactivity type role. Based on my experience, these type of roles can have serious underpinnings and grievances to the entire relationship if it’s not properly understood.
Take the case of a young couple where the female has understands her role to be fixed in any men vs women relationship. She would expect her partner to make most of the moves regarding where they go on a date and what he chooses to do or decide. It is very similar to the animal kingdom where the male is the predator when it comes to hunting females for mating. In this situation, the male over time may have certain expectations from the females and the female needs to be able to see this and play a more active role. However, it is entirely possible that a female who appears to be in a reactive role is ‘in fact’ playing a subtle ‘proactive’ role. For example, she induces a reactionary role within the partner just simply by observation and making subtle moves. This could also stem from the women’s survival skills to hold on to her partner so that she has someone who can father her children and will always be around for this.
It is a cautionary tale of love & conquests that we hear of from many romantic novels and movies. The roles of proactivity and reactivity are significant factors that come into play in a relationship without many men or women being aware of it. For some people who are skilled in the art of seduction, they may have a good handle on this technique and many men and women may unwittingly fall for this. Next time you find yourself being pulled in a certain direction, you may want to think for a moment whether you are in fact playing a proactive or a reactive role.

Are the compatibility figures in online dating sites a myth or a fact?
Friday, April 27th, 2012
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.
