Online dating has never been faster, more precise, and more ubiquitous. The online-dating services allege the assured success of their matchmaking algorithms. Whether this is true or not, these tools already modified our relationship dynamics and practices. They become our extensions and help us stretch ourselves to new capacities. In its current form however such love algorithms can only arrange for us the first date.
How can we fill in the gaps of the love algorithm in our search for love? How far can we go in providing information that could prevent failure and match us most accurately with our possible partner? While the emotional side of these processes is still very individual and works enigmatically still greatly influenced by the social behaviour and the environment of the partners, the measurable data in which the humans interact is used by these objects for trying to predict the perfect match.
