SEATTLE, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Perfectmatch.com, the fastest-growing online relationship site for adults seeking lasting love, announced today the launch of their new Duet(R) Analysis Profile, a revolutionary 360 degree presentation of its members. The new profile, divided into a four-part grid, offers a rich showcase of important information for relationship-oriented singles, including an in-depth personality analysis, perspective on their lifestyle and approach to relationships, their core values and ideals, and their personal preferences. This additional emphasis on personality and lifestyle helps Perfectmatch and its members find compatible individuals based upon the characteristics most important to sustaining a relationship. This ground-breaking approach offers a counterbalance to the casual nature of most online matchmaking sites that focus on the member's photo by creating a totally new way of presenting its member profiles.
"This is an exciting opportunity to meet new consumer needs," said Duane Dahl, CEO, Perfectmatch.com. "Over the past decade, there have been few changes in the way online member profiles are presented. We're shifting the paradigm of online relationship matching by showing that for adults seeking lasting relationships, personality analysis, lifestyle and relationship insights, and a thorough understanding of a member's values and preferences can be more important or as important than a member photo. With this growing audience -- it's more about the member, who and what they are about, than it is about their picture."
The Duet(R) Analysis Profile, which can be viewed at http://www.perfectmatch.com/duetprofile is an important outgrowth of Perfectmatch's industry-leading Duet(R) Total Compatibility System. Duet(R), the most advanced and insightful personality measurement tool online, was co-developed by world renowned relationship expert, Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D., a tenured professor at the University of Washington. Duet(R) identifies a member's distinct personality type, and helps them better understand what they need from a relationship partner.
"To build a real relationship, you need to match people on a variety of critical criteria, not just a snapshot. The new profile reflects the fact that Perfectmatch is a great alternative to the picture personals approach casual online dating sites have used over the past decade for their profile pages," continued Dahl.
The insights behind the new Duet(R) Analysis Profile are the result of both serious research and deep intuitive understanding of what single adults want from an online relationship service. The Perfectmatch team is the most experienced team in the online dating/relationships category, having pioneered the space with Kiss.com, one of the first online dating sites launched, back in 1995. The team moved on from casual online dating to found Perfectmatch, which offers a qualified, focused approach for adults 27-60+ looking for a community of quality members seeking relationships. The site is now the fastest growing in the online relationships space, with over three million members.
Leaders in the online relationship service industry and now, the fastest growing dating and relationship site with three million members, Perfectmatch.com was founded by the team who pioneered online dating and relationships. The foremost authorities in relationships on the Internet, the Perfectmatch.com team previously built and managed Kiss.com/uDate.com to over seven million members, leading up to the sale to InterActiveCorp (Match.com) in 2002 for $150 million.
Perfectmatch.com is for adults looking for lasting, meaningful relationships. It is the only relationship service to offer the Duet(R) Total Compatibility System (Duet(R)), co-developed by internationally renowned relationship authority, Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D. Based on 30+ years of research, the revolutionary Duet(R) analyzes each members Personality, Values and Ideals, Life and Lovestyle(TM) and Preferences to identify and find just the right person for them. Perfectmatch.com competes with Christian-oriented eHarmony.com(R) in the online relationship arena.
Perfectmatch.com has forged partnerships with world-class brands including MSNBC, Lifetime Television, iVillage, Knight Ridder, Go.com, Warner Bros., Paramount and NBC Universal Studios.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
