Dna based dating service
It's an interesting hypothesis but not really a new one.As the only person in the Particle team who lacks a significant other, it was natural that I be the one to test it.Now, based on past ratios of successful versus unsuccessful dating attempts, I would have expected the majority of my matches to be in the 70 – 85% range, perhaps with a few scattered in the middle and then maybe one around the 95% mark. I had 13 matches in the 75 – 79% range, 26 matches from 80 – 89% and 41 matches from 90 –100%. Which you'd think would make me feel pretty great—look how compatible I am! But actually, the high proportion of perfect scores makes me wonder if being a match for someone is the norm and it's more unusual to find someone with DNA who is incompatible.But automatically, I feel that DNA Romance is less satisfying than something like, say, Tinder because you don't get that sparkly little self-esteem boost every time someone chooses to match with you.

Or is our romantic compass something that's ingrained into our very being?
The theory is that your body produces chemical signals, as determined by your DNA.
We want our genes to perpetuate, and that means finding a partner who has a beneficial genetic contribution to make.
The world being as unpredictable as it is, often the best thing you can give is genetic variety.
