Profile matching feature

  • elijeh


    I want the members on my dating site to fill in profile fields about themselves and then be able to search for specific characteristics they desire (found in other members’ profile fields) to find a “match”. I haven’t been able to figure out how to do this. I think it requires two sets of profile fields – one for “myself” and one for “my ideal date”.

    How can I create the two sets of profile fields and connect them so when a member searches for “my ideal date”, the info from other members’ “myself” is accessed and a matching percentage given?

    I think it has to be two sets of fields because the language differs between when a member fills in info about themselves and when they input what they are seeking.

    I’m trying to get my site up live and it’s taking me forever so I sure appreciate any help you can provide.

    I’m using WordPress 4.7.3 running Sweetdate Child theme that came with BuddyPress Version 2.8.2

    Take a look at I think this is a good start.



    I looked at the description of that before and thought it seemed to be aimed at matching people with similar characteristics – which is what I already have.

    I want something that allows a member to say he/she wants a match to characteristics that are different. For example, she doesn’t smoke but is ok if he does. Or he drinks but wants her to be a person who doesn’t. Or he is 6’3″ tall and is looking for someone who is shorter than that.

    My understanding of what I’ve currently got is that it takes one member’s profile and matches it with members who have identical profiles (except for the “man looking for a woman” field).

    Do you know if match-me-for-buddypress allows non-identical matching?

    Currently it does not allow non-identical matching.



    Is there a way to edit bp or a plugin that will provide that feature?

    You can request customization on plugin mentioned above from the author.
