Abstract: We show that the application of trust models to socially emotive applications such as online dating, while beneficial, is difficult due to the complexities of the interpersonal relationships that exist. These are discussed with respect to our initial attempt to design a transitive trust
model for social network dating services and existing trust taxonomies. We hope that the issues discussed motivate researchers to consider more complex social relationships in the design of trust models.
