"The science and psychology behind human interactions and relationships need to be implemented into the online dating experience to create successful and lasting matches."

There is a plethora of NEW & FRESH papers about the latest discoveries in theories of romantic relationships development with commitment, but unfortunately:

The biggest scammers in the Online Dating Industry are not from Nigeria or Ghana. Biggest scammers are precisely the owners and C-level executives of major online dating sites, more worried in attracting, converting and retaining subscribers with automatic renewal of their subscriptions and other credit-card billing trickery, than offering a good compatibility matching method.
although, during Q2 2010 traffic still continued to decline in major paid Online Dating Sites and many Social Networking sites. The phenomenon started in January 2009, 18 long months losing traffic.

Dating sites:
Severely losing traffic: True, SparkCOM, Singlesnet, MeeticFR, MeeticCOM, Date, Be2DE
Slowly losing traffic: Match, Perfectmatch, Chemistry, ParshipDE

Social Networking sites:
Severely losing traffic: Sonico, Hi5, Friendster, Friendfinder, Fotolog, Bebo
Slowly losing traffic: mySpace, Orkut

It is not due to the traction of Facebook, it is the Online Dating Fatigue Phenomenon due to Obsolescence of Dating Sites offering Compatibility Matching Methods.

Daters are understanding that the entire Online Dating Industry for serious daters in 1st World Countries is a HOAX, performing as a Big Online Casino, with a low effectiveness/efficiency level of their matching algorithms (less than 10%), and new proposals like the ones offered by the new PlentyOfFish Marriage predictor, eDarling, 12like/VisualDNA, IntroAnalytics, MatchMatrix, Moonit, LittleHint and similars, are not better than the old ones.
They cannot break "the online dating sound barrier".

Sam Moorcroft,

Can someone *PLEASE* ban this guy from posting? It's the same garbage repeated over and over and over and over ad nauseum, on this and other dating blogs.

I am sure I speak for numerous readers when I say this.
