  4. 4. Soul2MatchAbout Soul2MatchThe Love StoryOnce upon a time, way back in the 90’s, there was a little boy. His father used totake him to church every week – and that’s where the idea of Soul2Match was firstborn.The boy’s dad noticed that two of their friends they met at the church every weekhad similar facial traits. They weren’t related, nor were they together as a couple.Several years later, the boy and his dad ran into these two very same friends. Totheir surprise, these two friends were now together, very happily married.What are the odds? Well, you might be surprised! Research indicates that peoplewith similar facial traits have a better chance of being in a strong, long-termrelationship. It’s this very same research that the Soul2Match vision for love isbased upon.

  10. 10. Soul2MatchQuotes ‘We have combined the latest in science and technology with our passion for connecting people.’ It may sound like a cliché, but ones own face shows all kinds of characteristics we find ourselves attracted to. Only, society conditions us to disregard these innate attractions in similar- looking potential mates. Our app lets people take someones picture and immediately know what their relationship compatibility is. It gives you one hell of an icebreaker! Our Soul2Match-tool is based on loads of scientific research in the serious areas of psychology and biometrics, but the results are a whole lot of fun!’ ‘Not only can you check your compatibility with best friends and friends, but also with any of our members that you find on our Flirt Wall or whose picture you get from Facebook, for example! ‘The Soul2Match tool is used by Universities to do research on attractiveness and on how relationships begin. So, not only is Soul2Match built on science, but it continues to contribute to ongoing research and science.’ ‘We’re proud to have already brought real joy and happiness to our friends and to many members of the Soul2Match community.’

  12. 12. Soul2MatchQuick facts  Soulmate relationships are based on shared values that can be detected within facial features.  The biometric software of Soul2Match analyzes your facial features and bone structure, helping to detect soulmate love and friendship compatibility.  Both the phenomenon «soulmates» and «love at first sight» date back to ancient Greece, where they were mentioned by Aristophanes in Plato’s Symposium.  One feels drawn to those who are alike.  This similarity is in the broadest sense: similarity in bone-structure, characteristics, life goals, ethnicity and appearance. The more these points match, the happier we are in a relationship (Folkes, 1982, Wilson et al, 2006).  The look-a-like effect is a significant element and plays an important role in self- affirmation. One of the basic principles of interpersonal attraction is the rule of similarity: similarity is attractive (Locke & Horowitz, 1990).  Penton-Voak, Perrett, and Peirce (1999) found that subjects rated the pictures with their own face morphed into it as more attractive.  DeBruine (2002) demonstrated in her research how subjects entrusted more money to their opponents in a game play, when the opponents were presented as similar to themselves.  Little, Burt, & Perrett (2006) examined similarity in sight for married couples and found that the couples were assessed at the same age and level of attractiveness. The length of the moderate relationship was related to perceptions of similarity; the couples who were together longer were seen as more equal.  When time passes by, couples become more alike through shared experiences, as well as-couples who are alike and who stay together longer (Zajonc et al, 1987).
  13. 13. Soul2MatchSex, love, and loneliness on the Internet Today’s online dating industry in a nutshell:In 2010, fee-based dating websites grossed over a billion dollars. Today, the onlinedating industry is worth $4 billion worldwide. Last year, it was estimated thatCraigslist would earn $122 million, with $88 to $99 million being profit by 2011.The Adult Services listings make up 30 percent of its revenue.According to a recent study, online is now the third most common way for peopleto meet (The most common are “through work/school” and “throughfriends/family”). One in six new marriages is the result of meetings on Internetdating sites (Nobody’s counting one-night stands). Moreover, 17% of couples whomarried in 2009 met on a dating site. The even more staggering statistics – 1 in 5singles have dated someone they met on a dating site; 1 in 5 singles are currently ina committed relationship with someone they met on a dating site.The top 2 giants in the online dating industry are Match.com and eHarmony.com.Match.com is now the biggest dating site in the world and is, itself, the biggestaggregator of other dating sites. Under the name Match, it owns thirty in all, andaccounts for about a quarter of the revenues of its parent company, I.A.C., BarryDiller’s collection of media properties.Match.com bases its matchmaking on the Myers-Briggs personality test.Conversely, eHarmony pair people up using their "key dimensions of compatibility,"which are grouped into core traits and vital attributes. Match.com has a more openpolicy, whereas eHarmony.com only pairs up straight matches.
  14. 14. Soul2MatchTrendyNiche online dating sites are on the cutting edge of trends. Some sites are based ona simple gimmick. Scientific Match attempts to pair people according to theirDNA, and claims that this approach leads to a higher rate of female orgasms.Ashley Madison notoriously connects cheating spouses. Howaboutwe.com asks onlythat you complete a sentence that begins “How about we . . ,” with a suggestion fora first date. At Whatsyourprice.com, you can pay or get paid to go on a date.Social media + online dating =?Sexting, Twirling, Facebook-stalking, etc… what else is out there?The new online dating scene is nothing like it was at the turn of the century. Every-one in your network is exposed to who you’re dating, how serious it is, and even howyou feel about that person — for better or worse. We post pictures of our significantothers, tweet about the gifts they give us, and check into restaurants while on dateswith them. We’ve accepted that the two are now one.As social media and online dating began to meld, one couldn’t be without the other.Googling, Facebooking and Tweeting potential dates is anything but uncommon —so why not have that information gathered for you instantly while perusing anonline dating profile?
