Could the earlier mentioned small amount of people who have taken it be the contributing factor to why I have only had 4-5 matches since it has launched or does it have some sort of limit to how many you can be "matched" with at any one time?
It is actually a bit of both. First, we never intended nor do we intend to send a lot of matches each week. We really want people to consider their matches and take them serious. Second, while we are not as large as a few of the big secular dating sites we do have a pretty large community. As a result it is very easy to be on image/information overload. Between, views, home page feeds, searches, favorites etc. It is a lot for some people to process. We think matching will help people consider more about the profile, who the person is and not simply dismiss them quickly on things that might not be as important as they are making them. Lastly, the pool is limited right now since only small % of our active users have completed the portrait. Like anything else new it takes a little time. Soon Match emails will be going out and we plan to direct user towards the portrait automatically upon login. Both things should increase the participation.
