Romantic relationships have been evolving for years – from courtship to hook-up culture, things have changed drastically. It’s safe to say that technology has had a big effect on dating – over 19% of relationships have started online according to bustle.com.
While some singles have turned to personalized matchmaking services like Love Brokers to end their dating woes, there is still a significant amount of people who prefer to use online dating.
At Love Brokers, single men and women put their heart in our hands instead of the hands of the internet.
We screen and qualify our members. We meet with our members, personally, to see if they are a good fit for our service. Each member is interviewed and given a series of evaluations where they are asked to be as open and honest as possible. The answers from these evaluations are considered when it comes to matching, but there’s much more to it.
Our matchmakers also use their intuition and skills to make successful matches. There’s only so much a person can tell about someone from a series of test questions. We compare personalities, interests, sexual attitudes, religious values and more when we are matching.
Matchmakers also offer date coaching to our members. After a first date, members are encouraged to check in with us and give us feedback – this allows us to gauge whether the potential relationship is heading in the right direction.
What are computer algorithms and how are they used for online dating?
An algorithm is defined as a well-defined procedure that allows a computer to solve a problem. Most dating sites use algorithms to match members by asking them a series of basic questions. Each answer is assigned a number – those answers are used to match them with other members who answered similarly. And boom – a match made in computer heaven is made.
“Most sites are pretty bad in the sense that their matching algorithms don’t actually work. In spite of that, though, online dating doesn’t hurt daters or their prospects — in fact, it helps them by opening up the dating pool,” according to Eli J. Finkel of Northwestern University.
Dating apps and websites are great for meeting people, sure. But if you’re paying for a monthly membership wouldn’t you want something that is more worthwhile?
Here at Love Brokers we focus our time on making quality matches for our members. If that is something that you’re looking for give us a call at 570-287-DATE (3283).
