First, to match someone with a potential mate, these questionnaires must be answered honestly and accurately, and they aren't (more on that coming shortly).And the questions these surveys ask are really about dating, not relationships, and there's a big difference between dating someone today and being compatible for the long term.The “Science” Behind It All Proprietary algorithms, tests and questionnaires that “promise” to match you with an ideal mate create an air of awe and confidence with a glint of the scientific.But the questions feeding these algorithms are highly suspect.Where are the questions about environment, economic conditions, and outside influences?(Example: Long-standing research shows that when couples encounter stress or unexpected demands on their energy, their satisfaction with their relationship declines, often leading to breakup or divorce.)Why don't these dating sites take critical happenings, variables and milestones into account when evaluating compatibility — money management, financial strain, losing a job, illness, death of a parent, moving, raising kids (not "do you want kids," but rather, asking questions about parenting style and actually raising kids)?highlights how Tinder has signaled a “dating apocalypse” because it doesn’t promote actual “dating” — it promotes hookups based on physical appearance.
So it's not the dating sites' fault for not being able to bring them up.
But these are questions/considerations that need to be taken into account.
If online dating sites claim to help find lasting love — a "match" — questions like these are a crucial part of evaluating long-term companionship.
Of course, there are online dating success stories.
Everyone seems to know someone who knows someone who is getting married to their online sweetheart.
And again, this is all assuming the respondents are telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. But given how disconnected people are from the process of “courtship” on Tinder, it ends up a train wreck, as exemplified by the rising usage and views on Bye Felipe, the Instagram account that calls out the jerks from Tinder.
