Plentyoffish can now predict who you will marry.

After years of collecting data and trying all kinds of things to predict who will fall in love,  who will break up and who will marry we have finally done it.    We now have a fairly accurate model for predicting who an average user will end up with.   Obviously it won’t work for everyone,  but what predictive statistical model does?

This new model completely replaces our old chemistry test.   We now give you a set of 30 matches that you are most likely going to end up dating.    The list will mostly stay the same but it will change if a better match signs up or one of your matches deletes themselves from the site.

  1. John C Says:

    How did you accurately quantify categories like “easygoingness?” And why are we to believe that these few categories are enough to accurately predict something as complex as long-term relationship dynamics? Why are we not to believe that your method is a pseudo-scientific formula? From what I can tell, you’re using clever marketing. There is no way to prove that your formula is “accurate” without you tracking (for years) the ratio of failures to successes, and then releasing that data to the public. Since you currently have no incentive to do that, I have no incentive to believe your claim.

    • kim bjo Says:

      well markus puts a bunch of mice to a ‘easingoingnometer’, and tests them for easygoingness. the more easy going they are, the less they get shocked. make sense?

    • Ken Says:

      What is an easingoingomeeting. All of these types of predictions seem very koo koo

  2. Online Dating Sound Barrier Says:

    I had checked this new PlentyOfFish matching algorithm, it does not give you a compatibility percentage any more; and it is still based on a proprietary Big5 model to assess personality traits.

    This new PlentyOfFish matching algorithm seems to be the same dog with another collar or the same book with another cover, or the same food with another taste.

    What is exactly new, different or better in this new approach than what the old one offered?

    Which is exactly the range of that new PlentyOfFish matching algorithm?
    e.g: In a big database as the one at PlentyOfFish, it shows you 3 women per 10,000 women screened or 30 women per 100,000 women screened. (10 times better than the old algorithm)???

    As Marital Stability does not include Marital Satisfaction, a marriage can be stable but miserable. Can you show this new PlentyOfFish matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one’s own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper?

    Is Dr. James Houran the brain behind this new PlentyOfFish matching algorithm?

    If you are so rich, why don’t you acquire the license of the 16PF5 normative personality test instead of still using a proprietary Big5 model to assess personality?

    WorldWide, there are over 5,000 (five thousand) online dating sites, but no one is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of their members, or a propietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5

  3. Markus Says:

    All personality tests are BS, including your 16pf5 as well as the big5.

    We use a completely different approach.

    • Online Dating Sound Barrier Says:

      “We use a completely different approach”

      Can you explain better that approach please?

      Which is exactly the range of that new PlentyOfFish matching algorithm?

    • John C Says:

      so, Markus, you are arguing that since all personality tests are BS, then the personality test that you use is not BS? that logic doesn’t add up. Or are you arguing that since other methods are BS, and your method is different than other methods, your method cannot also be BS? Because that logic doesn’t add up either.

      If you make a claim, back it up. How is your “different approach” not BS? What does it do differently and how do such differences work as an improvement? Further, what physical data can you provide as evidence?

  4. Larry Says:

    You can almost hear the sound barrier weeping…

    • Online Dating Sound Barrier Says:

      It is an improvement but not an innovation. Mr. Frind only adjusted the output of the algorithm.
      Before that adjustment the algorithm was an “out of control machine gun” firing flowers, and now it only shoots 30 “flowers” per dater without showing a compatibility percentage any more.

      At PlentyOfFish there are 3 tests, and they are still the same as before.

      1) PlentyOfFish Relationship Chemistry Predictor (POFCP) [measures five broad dimensions of personality that are each essential for building a romantic relationship]
      It is a proprietary FLAWED Big5 model to assess personality.

      It is FLAWED because that personality test should be:
      – in English for the United States and the Norm for the United States (sample of individuals with the same demographic characteristics of the United States).
      – in English/French for Canada and the Norm for Canada (sample of individuals with the same demographic characteristics of Canada)
      – in English for the United Kingdom and the Norm for the United Kingdom (sample of individuals with the same demographic characteristics of the United Kingdom).
      – in English for Australia and the Norm for Australia (sample of individuals with the same demographic characteristics of Australia).
      and so on for each & every country where PlentyOfFish is available.

      2) PlentyOfFish Relationship Needs Assessment
      Compatibility at PlentyOfFish is all about personality “similarity”.
      question #76 “I find that my past partners and I usually share the same mood.”
      question #78 “My partner is the sort of person whom I myself would like to be.”

      3) PlentyOfFish Integrity, Sincerity and Relationship Stability test.
      Only users who can form and maintain long term relationships are given the privilege of upgrading.

    Marco could you answer to John C and Sound Barrier?

  6. Markus Says:

    Well predictive models predict a outcome…

    Personality tests only predict what kind of personality you have. They do not predict who will enter into relationships, that requires you having actual couples to validate your test. something that takes years.

    Right now as far as i know we are the only site that has a proven measurable test. I would assume eharmony has done the work as well they just don’t say it publically.

    • John C Says:


      First, I question the legitimacy of any argument that uses an article on Wikipedia as its primary source of evidence.

      More importantly, can you explain how a “predictive model” can accurately predict the outcome of a relationship without understanding the personality of those involved? Logic indicates that a predictive model built for the sake of predicting the success of a relationship inputs data from a personality test into given variables.

      Further, you have not proven that your “predictive model” is more accurate, you have only proven that is seeks a different goal than a personality test. You have failed to address and rebut the claims put forth by Sound Barrier and I.

  7. Daniel Gold Says:

    Markus if you need help localizing your site in different languages we have certified translators from around the world who can do that for you.. Often people use translators but not ones who are localized to particular dialects that are regional. Even the difference between French from France and Quebec are quite significant. With regards to your tests understanding the particular context of words in questions might have a significant impact on your models.

  8. Markus Says:

    I have no great desire to post exactly what we did. Especially with everyone in the industry reading. What we say or do on this post makes absolutely no difference in terms of generating relationships on POF.

    The success of this alogorithm is going to depend on the change in the number of relationships created as a result of Plentyoffish. We have a fantastic RMSE but what impact that has on the site remains to be seen.

    Also we are trying to predict if you will enter into a relationship and what the chance of failure for that relationship is before marriage. We simply don’t have enough data to predict if the relationship will fail 20 years down the road.

    At the end of the day we aren’t trying to solve the stable marriage problem (SMP) using something akin to a Gale-Shapley algorithm that eharmony and chemistry use.

    • John C Says:

      Unfortunately, without releasing at least some evidence of your formula’s success, or some more in depth explanation for your prediction of its success, there is no reason for anyone to believe what you say.

  10. Denise Says:

    Markus, I think the change on POF in only showing 30 matches that predicts who you will marry is limiting and a disappointing change in the site’s features. First of all marriage might not be the goal for many members…the compatibility percentage was a really good barometer to see matches on basic values then a member could view in excess of 30 photos page by page with the posted match percentage. Then by clicking on each photo enter the profile to read the things that can’t be quantified by some personality compatibility test…depending on how much the member wrote you could have insight into socio-economic background, religious affiliation, political leanings and dominant leisure interests. Please consider bringing back the feature that shows matches by percentage in that concise format you previously had posted!

    I really like the way plentyoffish finds compatibility. The issue with this is that half the people don’t put too much thought in creating profiles or filling out questionnaires so the accuracy of the results is questionable.

      I think people like the privacy that a dating website offers.

When you join a dating site you have a good comfort zone until you really get to know the person.

    I am still gratefully using PoF,

    your new formulae provides.

    For the most part they are
    NOT my matches. No way.

    You removed the single most
    vital feature in Profiles: DELETE!

    If YOU want to check your math
    by calculating your Match choices
    against my DELETE selections,
    it can only assist your refinement
    of that new algorithm.

    You had DELETE (remove/block) before.
    Clearly you could activate it again.

    Just restore that link at the bottom
    of each (Match) Profile -OR- even
    BETTER – at bottom of EVERY Profile
    to delete/block/remove/hide….

    I have enough Tech to know this
    would NOT be a strain on the dBase,
    and I have enough faith that said data
    would eventually help your accuracy.

    Until then, i MUST skip My Useless Matches

    Shame on anyone who thinks POF is a different dating site. First off, the site now has a source of income. If one is to upgrade by taking the personality test (by the way this test is categorical) passing or not, you have to pay for membership. So how can some of their apps be claimed as free, yet, you need to pay for the upgrade so you can obtain these apps? The answer is simple, those apps are not free, its like buying two subs for the price of one. In reality you are only paying the price of 50% for the single sub’s full retail price (but you do need to buy two to make the deal). It’s not free, it will cost you money. If people are looking for “value”, why do you need to pay, it is like the “mybook” and the “facespace”, it is a network where you can contact people. If they don’t like you, they wont talk to you, simple. But we are getting off track. The point I will say to Markus is this, if your personality and psychology test is the new brand in the field, then why are you only exposing categorical evidence to your algorithm? You claim it’s empirical, yet, you use psychology and the viewer’s personal interest as your base of reason.

    if one is to be observant and quantify the observation then you are being empirical, but the irony is this. Your have to categorize your data. That being said, you have to make decisions, thus the outcome is arbitrated through the intent of this character we call Markus. He the “creator”, the point is, if you are to write any equation, you need to know the dynamics, thus stating a formula. Like in 8th grade and learning Pythagorean’s Theorem, A squared+B squared=C squared, yet, when we are exposed to the concept of personality, the variables change: meaning that the exampled Theorem is irrational. A, B and C can change, thus establishing inconstancy. My point is this, POF is an interesting site, you can view and talk to people you are interest in for a relationship. However, the fact that this site uses categorical evidence it will never maintain the full truth about relationships. First off, it is an algorithm, meaning it provides industrial and economic value if your not just into writing programs. Secondly the use of psychology reinforces us that their intent is still categorical. I mean when they say the easygoing trait you should know these are words more associate with the categorical imperative then personality. Say I don’t like mean people, therefore i should not hang out with mean people. That is great and all but the problem is, people can lie, thus, the outcome in the variables become bias. Meaning that nice 20 year old girl could be a 50 year old alligator.

    Just like a previous post about wanting no kids, how come i still get matches that want kids. There is a programing error, and not just a programing error, but you are also using psychology as means of action; psychology is BS it uses social standards. meaning that marring a 12 year old here (in the US) would make me diseased but in another country it is OK. thus again establishing the folly in their reason. It is opinionated, if I am in favor to what you negate, I therefor have a problem because you control what is good and bad.

    “Obviously it won’t work for everyone, but what predictive statistical model does?”

    That is a very true statement. In any regard, I think that just to have a better chance using this option before, than you did not using it, is something worth trying right? I have noticed, that reading over profiles of those who say’s I’m more likely to marry, I do see a trend of positive correlation of our hobbies, dislikes, etc.
