Sifting Through The Singles Bin
While there may be no magic set of data that can deliver the perfect mate every time, every one of us has a set of criteria we normally look for when selecting a mate. Sure, a few pros here can helps us negate a few cons there, but for the most part, we stick to a basic formula of what attracts us to someone else, be it hair color, religious faith, job title or favorite soup.
For those that have immigrated to America, recently or not, finding those matches can sometimes be difficult in large cities or in a new environment after a job relocation or move for some reason. As this article suggests, online dating can be a great mechanism for quickly pinpointing all of the singles profiles that matches up with your search criteria. They even have sophisticated matchmaking algorithms to match you up with singles that may have not considered, but who could still be ideal.
The article, which ran in the Moscow Times, details the pursuit of love by a young woman born in Azerbaijan through online Jewish dating site, JDate.com. The man she met through the site, her eventual husband, was born in Minsk and searched specifically for a Jewish woman that spoke Russian and had come to America at an early age as he did.
Few other forums can offer such an open screening process. Going to a bar and asking each woman if they spoke Russian might be a little off-putting and probably not very effective. Online, results are filtered simply and easily to deliver potential matches that fall well within a given outline.
The article goes on to describe other groups that have found similar success by connecting those with similar values but the act of connecting singles based on similar values is a much bigger phenomenon that something confined to a particular group or two. Isn't that what we all strive for?
This example and others like it show the power of online dating to cut to the core of what a person thinks matters, delivering others that feel the same. For the things that matter, that can trim a lot of the fat from the dating pool.
