Dissecting 'The One' on Netflix: Decoding the Romantic Blueprint in Your DNA

The popular Netflix series "The One" puts a spotlight on the concept of employing genetic information to discover your ideal romantic partner. When author John Marrs released "The One" in 2018, it swiftly climbed to the top of the best-selling science fiction books that year. Now, as of 2021, it has been transformed into a successful Netflix series. Even though we don't remember any direct consultations with John Marrs about DNA Romance, his team masterfully depicted several factors that underlie human attraction. Contrary to what some might believe, DNA Dating is not a figment of science fiction, and there isn't just a single perfect match for every individual.

Genetic Dating and Netflix: Decoding The Romance Blueprint

In the Netflix series 'The One', genetic dating is depicted as a mystery, but what truly makes a great DNA Match? Is there truly only one ideal match for each of us?

So, what truly makes an excellent DNA Match?

DNA Romance predicts the sensation of 'Chemistry' online using DRom 1.0, an algorithm that assesses 100 DNA Markers and provides a prediction of the degree of romantic 'chemistry' that two individuals are likely to experience when they meet in person.

DRom 1.0 assesses each DNA marker's position in the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC), a set of genes that code for proteins found on the surface of your cells. These proteins assist our immune system in recognizing and fighting off pathogens. Scientific research has demonstrated that individuals with diverse MHC genes find each other’s scent to be appealing and are more likely to maintain a long-lasting romantic relationship.

How does DNA Romance predict DNA matches?

Having a highly diverse DNA code in the MHC region is known to influence partner selection. People with vastly different MHC genes tend to find each other's scent attractive, whereas those with similar MHC genes often find each other's scent repulsive. With these genes, opposites genuinely do attract!

DRom 1.0 delivers a high compatibility rating when two individuals have vastly different genes, and a low compatibility rating when the individuals share a similar DNA code in the MHC region. DNA Romance evaluates genes that scientists have been studying for decades, as you can see in these independent research studies. Here are a couple of independent documentaries that further elucidate the science behind romantic "chemistry".

Is there just one perfect person for you? With over 8 billion people on earth, there are several thousand near-perfect matches for you.
