Traditional recommendation methods offer items, that are inanimate and one way recommendation, to users. Emerging new applications such as online dating or job recruitments require reciprocal people-to-people recommendations that are animate and two-way recommendations. In this paper, we propose a reciprocal collaborative method based on the concepts of users' similarities and common neighbors. The dataset employed for the experiment is gathered from a real life online dating network. The proposed method is compared with baseline methods that use traditional collaborative algorithms. Results show the proposed method can achieve noticeably better performance than the baseline methods.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
