More than half of the women reported starting a romantic or sexual relationship through the system, as compared to less than a third of the men, reflecting, in part, that men outnumber women on the system nearly three to one.
You should not have too much external links on your website.Everything depends on the integrity of the "matching algorithm." Ours is straightforward: If a citizen "strongly" supports a candidate on a particular issue, we award seven points.We then subtract one-point for each step that the voter distances himself in issue space -- with "moderately support" earning six points and "strongly oppose," only one.Co-authored by Danieli Evans Millions of Americans use on-line dating sites to search for their perfect mate: Are you a hiker or a homebody? After telling the dating service who you're looking for and what you're like, its computer matching program searches its data base -- and presto, out comes a list of prospects whose responses best match yours. Obama and Romney each pick their five priority issues and write up policy statements on each choice.Let voters do the same thing as they search for the right presidential candidate. There is only one proviso: neither can mention his name or political party or that of his opponent.
