### Dating website matchups

#### John Toczekpuzzlor@gmail.com

As the owner of a new dating website, youâ€™re working on the logic on how to best match men and women together. Providing people with good dating candidates is important to keep them interested in using the website and for relationship success. So far, your first clients are 10 women and 10 men.

Table 1 shows the personality characteristics for each person. The goal is to match pairs (one man to one woman) so that the most number of characteristics match. For each characteristic that matches, you earn one point. For example, matching Man 1 and Woman 1 would be worth two points (because the Living Preference and Social characteristics match).
