Algorithmic Dating & Finding Love Online

A CS1 Final Project by Lena Felton

In 2013, the American National Academy of Sciences reported that more than a third of people who married in the US between 2005 and 2012 met their partner online, and half of those people met on dating sites. Online dating is revolutionizing the way in which people meet, interact, date, marry. For some, this is a novel and strange concept; for others, it is simply a consequence of our increasingly web-based lives. This website will illuminate the history of algorithmic and online dating, the actual algorithms behind popular dating sites, and where the industry may be headed.
