PlentyofFish Passes 2 Billion Matches - Online Personals Watch: News on the Online Dating Industry and Business

"eHarmony ...... showing 1 billion matches since 2000."
"PlentyofFish ..... passed 2 Billion matches generated by our matching system since 2005 or so."

They are clearly indicators of the low, low, low quality of the service!!!

And they are consistent with:
Many actual online dating sites offering compatibility matching methods could reach "as low as" 3 / 4 persons high compatible per 1,000 persons, so in a 10,000,000 persons database, you have as many as 30,000 / 40,000 persons to contact/date, that means a WHOLE PRECISION LESS than anyone could achieve by searching on one's own!!!!
(30,000 persons is the population of an average small city!!!)

A high quality serious online dating site with compatibility matching should reach no more than
e.g. 48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
So any person will be effectively matched with no more than 48 others and the matching system will not pass more than 480 million matches in a 10,000,000 persons database.

This doesn't surprise me. Plentyoffish has been around awhile now and has a great service.

Congrats to POF! Their matching test is the best I've used. It's short but effective. All of their online tests are fun but useful! Keep them coming!
