This also includes approximating the satisfaction that the user will have in a relationship with a particular candidate.
The matching service also identifies two parties for a relationship.
Another method for operating a matching service according to this invention includes receiving a plurality of surveys completed by different users.
Each survey includes a plurality of inquiries into matters that are relevant to formation of relationships with other people.
The method also includes approximating the satisfaction that the user will have in a relationship with a particular candidate.
The method can also include classifying the user based on the approximated satisfaction that the user will have in the relationships that user forms with others.
As a result, many people would be comfortable with a more gradual and less personal introduction to new people.
This includes approximating the satisfaction that a user of the matching service has in the relationships that the user forms with others and identifying candidates for a relationship with the user based on the approximated satisfaction.Still another embodiment of the invention includes inputting into a neural network information provided by a user of the matching service and receiving from the neural network a list of one or more candidates that the neural network has determined will be successful in a relationship with the individual.Yet another embodiment of the invention includes identifying two parties for a relationship and providing a plurality of communication levels.Research has shown that the success of human relationships depends on complex interactions between a large number of variables including, but not limited to, personality, socioeconomic status, religion, appearance, ethnic background, energy level, education, interests and appearance.The large number of variables involved in determining relationship success has made predicting the success of a relationship to be very unreliable.
