Everyone agrees that shidduchim are more challenging in general than they used to be. The ages of singles are going up. People are expressing a lot of frustration with the shidduch system and with being presented shidduchim that have nothing in common with what they are looking for. Shadchanim are well meaning but often very busy. They may not know properly either of the people they are trying to match. And the situation is only getting more difficult and more disappointing for many young people and their parents.
A few enterprising Chabadniks have come up with an innovative way to combat this “Shidduch crisis” – by harnessing the power of math to pair matches through compatibility scoring.
The result is a new website – www.matchmyshidduch.com – which features a 200-long questionnaire that prospective bochurim and girls are invited to answer.
After the questionnaire is submitted, a computer uses an algorithm to convert the given answers into a numerical score. The computer can then use that score to match Bochurim and Girls who show the highest compatibility with each other.
Why is high compatibility important? Because the more compatible a couple is, the greater are the chances of a happy, successful marriage.
The computer checks for many levels of compatibility, from spiritual to physical appearance to character traits, goals etc. The 200 questions are very detailed and cover all the most important aspects of life.
The project was developed as a service to the community, and is 100% free of charge to use. Everyone is free to register and fill up the questionnaire and then see which shidduchim come up that have high compatibility scores.
