That might be the reason why the online dating sites have begun providing new and original ways to help us find true love.
One example is the Line Date Web site ( whose proprietors don't believe that love is blind.
Instead, they propose that the best way to find a partner is to do a graphological test.
The idea is simple - the user sends a text in his or her own handwriting (by fax, by regular mail, or as a picture file), which is then analyzed by the site's three graphologists.
In the wake of this analysis, the candidates are classified on the basis of three dominant characteristics.
Users can then choose the candidates according to the characteristics they like most.
Other Israeli sites, such as the relatively veteran Capiyot ( promise that their special questionnaires - whose extensive and invasive nature rivals the entrance exams to the Shin Bet security service - are able to define the candidates well and to find the most suitable partner for them.
But the flagship questionnaire is that of the geeks' match-making site, OKCupid ( which has recently opened a Hebrew branch in Israel - but many of its pages are still in English.
The free dating site offers the ultimate in filtering - "the dating personality test." Several of its questions are rather unusual, such as: "By whom would you prefer to be caught masturbating - mom or dad?
" The site features some 30,000 questionnaires that resemble those we used to love on Facebook - until everyone got tired of them.
As is true of anything of quality offered online, I found myself caught up in all the questions.
