Dna matching for dating service
According to research by Instant Chemistry, the maker of the testing kits used by Singld Out, there is a strong correlation between people in long-term relationships having different versions of the serotonin genes and different immune systems.
'With online dating, you have socioeconomic factors people try to match on — religion, how much you make,' Ron Gonzalez, co-founder of Instant Chemistry, told USA Today.'This is another layer on top of that so you can better find matches.'Membership prices for Singld Out are $199 for three months, $249 for six months or $299 for 12 months. However, on the Singld Out Twitter account, promotional codes for $53 per month membership (three months being the minimum, making the actual price $159) are being tweeted daily.According to scientists, there are a host of environmental factors that come into play when it comes to selecting a mate, and that the markers tested by Instant Chemistry may only account for a minute portion of what causes attraction on a genetic level.They discovered that females were attracted to men who had dissimilar HLA alleles from them.Furthermore, these females reported that the body odors of HLA-dissimilar males reminded them of their current partners or ex-partners providing further evidence of biological compatibility.DNA results become part of each user’s profile, and members can search for and evaluate potential matches based on their genetic compatibility.
Instant Chemistry and Singld Out are not the first to promote genetic testing to determine romantic compatibility.
Alongside a quiz-based personality test (which the company describes as “highly accurate”), Singld Out is also measuring biological compatibility with the help of a company called Instant Chemistry.
They do this by looking at specific parts of the genetic code, including the Human Leukocyte Antigen system and the serotonin transporter gene.
presented evidence for HLA-dissimilar alleles playing a factor in the healthiness of romantic relationships.
They discovered that as the proportion of HLA-similar alleles increased between couples, females reported being less sexually responsive to their partners, less satisfaction from being aroused by their partners, and having additional sexual partners (while with their current partner). conducted an independent study on a population of American Hutterites by comparing the HLA alleles of married couples.
Genetic matchmaking is the idea of matching couples for romantic relationships based on their biological compatibility.
