Do you believe in the compatability tests that link you with your future mate

I see these ads on line and wonder how many folks online really believe in these sites that have compatability tests that link you with other users who take the same tests? How would you know that the other who takes the tests tells the truth..Isn't it possible that some looney tunes will get on their looking for prey and makes himself out to be good as gold while being as wicked as a snake.. How dependable are online sites..

I am not sure which site you're talking about but my husband and I took one and we did not have any compatability I took one with my best friend (he's a man) and we would happily ever after but, there's NO chance of that ever happening. I'm sure that if you were taking one with a ramdom internet user I would be awful leery. My friend tried one dating site and I don't remember which one and she didn't have any luck, the men were a little different (ok I was trying to be nice). I actually met my husband online but not on a dating site.

I never took such a task but thought it would make a super topic and cause people to think before putting much trust in such tests and sites..Myself, I have a very special thing going on with Jesus right now and that doesn't allow for any other men in my life..;)

I had that same thing (sorta) going on when I met my husband. I was just trying to finish college, I didn't want a man in my life.

hmm.. I am not wanting a man but not because of finishing college but because I truly want to be free to do for others. I believe the bible saying that those who marry must put their spouse before all else while the unmarried can busy themselves about God's work..and pleasing Him..and doing for others.

So far you are the only one that claims that they found the tests for compatability worked or is it that you become more like your spouse having been together 17 years?

I don't use such sites or am I looking for my mate..I have the best mate anyone can have: Jesus.. Anyway you need to tell all these sites that charge so much for their membership that they shouldn't make promises like being able to match folks up with their pefect match;) Again ..I am not searching but looking for topics that people will know much about and which would be good info for the common mylotter.

I've taken these free online compatibility tests just for fun and found that each time it says that my husband and me have a better chance of succeeding in love with someone else. So i don't really believe in all that though its taken all in the right spirit. I feel no one should put any faith or belief in these online tests. They are meant and created for the generally public taking a whole lot of general quality and since each individual is unique its difficult to get good and correct results

What an inspiration it was to have created this topic.. It's responses like yours and so many others that people should consider before putting all their trust in such sites.

I honestly think those tests are so pointless. I would not marry some lady I met by filling out a dumb fill in the bubble test. That just seems outrageous to me. I mean, is it really that hard to go outside and be social?

Good reasoning..It's nice to see our young people being able to think sensibly and not be affected by what is popularly acceptable ways to hook up.

It is really true that such sites are not dependable. All it takes is concerted efforts from both partners to thrive in egoless mutual love, upholding each others self respect, never putting the other down, never take a conflict to another day, taking care not to fight in front of children, be good role model for the next generation, be loyal through every crisis, care for each other in sickness and health and the family that prays together really stays together whatever the compatability charts may say.

Glad you stopped by to put in your commentary about such sites. No doubt, many people frequent these sites. I have a friend that found some one to speak to on such a site...sigh..hopefully he wont put his life into such tests.

Judging by the people my aunt finds on these sites, I think all of those guys are liars. Either that or the compatibility surveys really don't work.

I do not know how much reliable the tests are,But I believe there must be something compatible for the future couples.unless its there, there will be problems in life.

I think the world is to dependent on tests and statistics..In the good ole days people dated and had long engagements and married and lived a long happy life..Now society tells you what you need to watch out for and what you shouldnt put up with and the divorce rate has been all the more higher for all the more learning we have put into relationships.

i've done them before, but it was mostly for fun. i did that with my current husband and we weren't that high. i think it was something like the 'love calculator' or something like that. since i've been married to him, i haven't done those that much because i don't feel it matters. it was just a fun thing to pass the time.

How do you mean you done them before ..with your husband? Hopefully this was when you were playing and gesting..that you took the compatablity tests and not the result of a heated disagreement.

I agree with you that the compatibilty test are dependent on the integrity of the answers given by both party.I believe however, that if the answers are true then a compatibility space may be cerated which can be used to link persons of similar interests and possibly a future mate. I would not broadbrush all dating sites as failures ,I really believe they serve a purpose .They provide a valuable service to persons who are genuinely unable to find partners because of their socials skills or lack thereof.

Of course I would not broadbrush them as failures..but what I am saying is what is to keep one 100 percent safe in surrendering personal info to those who match your wants. If the looney tunes can get on myspace and other places..what's to stop them from infiltrating the dating sites..

I wouldn't trust taking an online test like this just for that reason..who knows how honest the others are that are taking the test. As for compatable tests, not to get an online date, but just in general. Before I was married, my husband and I had to take one at the church we were getting married at. Our results were not good...the pastor suggested we rethink our decision to get married or go to some counseling to discuss our differences before we get married. Well, here we are 21 yrars later still happy...guess those tests aren't 100% right anyways.

Personally I am not sure how much I could ever Trust some of these sites, as many Men do lie, and you never really know a person until you get to know them in other ways as well. I know there are people out there that might seem genuine but in reality might be Married, or something else as well. I tried Yahoo dating back about 12 yrs. ago, and it was a worthwhile experience but I did not meet my husband there so it did not work for me. I do know some relationships last and end in Marriage so for some it is good, but how do you really know? I guess it depends on the people as well. It could be worth trying but everyone needs to know it is best to play it safe, and when meeting for the first time, make sure it is somewhere in public as well.

I think all these compatibility tests are crap. They are just there to keep there websites alive and make money through it. How can someone believe on that. They just make you a bit happy at that time. these online sites are not dependable at all.
