Dating dna compatibility
According to the test, we are an 85% overall match, a rather strong result, Gonzalez says.
Most couples get a score between 60-80%; he and his wife, Sara Seabrooke, one of the co-founders of the company, got 80% on their test.
There may be a higher chance that our marriage will last—and that the last seven years were “worth it,” as my jokingly said when we looked through the results.
Gonzalez maintains that while there are critics of genetic matchmaking, the company’s work is rooted in research.
With more people turning to their laptops and apps to find love—25% of Canadians have tried online dating—codifying attraction at a glance based on gender, location, sexual preference, religion and so on is becoming the norm. In honour of Valentine’s Day, I decided to give Instant Chemistry a try with my First, here’s a breakdown of how the process works.
Each user is assigned an online profile that is tied to their DNA test (based on a saliva sample) as well as an online psychological assessment, developed by a clinical psychologist and unique to the company.
“Most of matchmaking today is an art, based on income and location.The initial idea was conceptualized by Claus Wedekind through his famous "sweaty t-shirt" experiment.Males were asked to wear T-shirts for two consecutive nights, and then females were asked to smell the T-shirts and rate the body odors for attractiveness. Last year, I got engaged to my boyfriend of seven years.Last week, I took a DNA test to see just how genetically compatible we are.
