So I put up a profile for fun, and I told Beloved. He wanted to see it, and once he re-activated his five year old account to do so, guess who was my number one match at 96%? Beloved! So I guess it does work. LOL

paramour to my Beloved,
best friend to LP (life partner of Beloved)
and our collective children

Back in 2008 when Snowbunny and I were active on OKC, the site said we were a 65% match. I guess you can draw your own conclusions ...

I'm not too sure on these percentages. Madman and me are around 92% we are so different on so many things it's not even funny. He is an isfp and I am an intj. We only have the I in common.

Default It's all in the weights

I haven't read the entire thread so I apologize if someone has touched on this.

As a statistics junkie, it's all in the weights you give to your answers. So if the importance is "a little important" vs. "Very" for certain questions, that has a dramatic affect on the your matches.

So I've answered the various "poly" questions and marked their importance as "Very". As a result, my matches over 90% are (almost) always poly (if the person hasn't answered many questions, this doesn't apply).

The 80% matches are somewhat open but typically not poly. Again, it only works if they have answered a few hundred questions so that they've touched on the "poly" questions.

But I've found that OKC works well. I met both of my current partners on OKC and they were over 90%.

But, to be completely forthright, I don't send messages out much anymore. The return rate is always extremely low. Both Gidget and Liza contacted me first. So I'm a very satisfied OKC user. :-D
