Are you looking for your soul mate online? We've got some good news and some bad news. First, the bad news: a new study has confirmed a terrifying truth about online dating sites: matchmaking algorithms don't work. (Researchers have been saying this since at least as far back as 2012.) In fact, the matches offered by algorithms are so inaccurate, you might be better off picking partners at random.
The good news? Despite the ineffectiveness of matchmaking algorithms, online dating can still help you find your soul mate... just not in the way you might expect.
