Datamatch 2008!

Datamatch!

Datamatch uses painstakingly developed computer algorithms and well-researched psychological profiles to find the perfect romantic match for you. Or maybe it's done randomly. We're not going to tell you. Either way, if you complete our questionnaire, our computer will generate a list of ten people, any of whom might be your perfect soulmate. Someone you'll want to marry and have twenty children with. Someone to share that dream within a dream, True Love. At least someone you'll want to take out for a triple decaf espresso. Or something.

Every year, around 2000 Harvard undergraduates take part in the largest campus event (except CEB Risk). Join us for Datamatch 2008!
