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.
