Dating site dna matching
"With online dating, you have socioeconomic factors people try to match on — religion, how much you make.
This is another layer on top of that so you can better find matches," Gonzalez said.
Romantic "Chemistry" is first sensed by your nose when you first meet someone in-person, and the scientific research demonstrated that people with differing DNA markers in major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes will find each others scent to be pleasant and are more likely to have a lasting romantic relationship.
Our algorithm uses information from ~102 DNA markers to forecast "chemistry" between you and other members.
Membership prices are 9 for three months, 9 for six months or 9 for 12 months. The company is testing two "markers" — the serotonin uptake transporter, involved in how people react to positive and negative emotions, and genes influencing your immune system.
Research shows there is a strong correlation between people in long-term relationships having different versions of the serotonin genes and different immune systems, said Ron Gonzalez, co-founder of Instant Chemistry.
Tinder fatigue is a real thing — and we’re not just talking swipe-induced Carpal tunnel syndrome.
Encapsulating your ~true essence~ on dating apps no easy feat.
Our personality matchmaking feature allows you to test the platform and see matches who share personality compatibility, without the requirement for a DNA test.

Gonzalez said he doesn't want these DNA tests to be seen as "deterministic." "If I could predict with 100% certainty who you will fall in love with, this would be amazing," he said.
When it comes to determining the success of relationships, there are so many other genes and environmental factors that come into play, Dougherty said.
For example, the research on couples and immune systems does not tell us how big of a factor this actually plays in mate selection.
