Dr. Love Is In

Robert E. Rosenwein, professor of sociology at Lehigh, was quoted yet again on the topic of singles joining dating sites that match people by psychological compatibility.

"I don't think there's any reason to think that the more complex inventory is going to be more predictive of success than something that's more 'superficial' … the literature all shows the best predictors are similarity in places of interests and values," Rosenwein said. "If that's what you're measuring, you can make matches and probably predict fairly successfully."
