At the United States there are many Psychologists (PhD) researching on
THEORIES OF ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS DEVELOPMENT

Unfortunately, NOT ALL Psychologists (PhD) agree between themselves!!!

Actually, I noticed that many users / subscribers (to sites that use proprietary tests or models) complaint about an actual big problem in "scientific dating and matchmaking": lack of precision / low precision / low successful matching rates. It seems that proprietary tests or models have great precision in measuring different psychological variables but the matching algorithm has low precision when comparing one psycho-pattern to others.

The MEDICINE: more power calculation and better matching algorithms to increase successful matching rates (will require ADVANCED MATH & STATISTICAL EQUATIONS, NOT only multiple/simple linear regression equations, root-mean-square error of approximation (RMSEA), comparative fit index (CFI) etc.).

OnLine Dating Sites and their Big Databases are NEW sources for scientific research.
New Knowledge is waiting to be discovered inside these Big Databases!!!
