Several applications require the matching of user profiles, e.g., job recruitment or dating systems. In this paper we present a logical framework for specifying user profiles that allows profile description to be incomplete in the parts that are unavailable or are considered irrelevant by the user. We present an algorithm for matching demands and supplies of profiles, taking into account incompleteness of profiles and incompatibility between demand and supply. We specialize our framework to dating services; however, the same techniques can be directly applied to several other contexts.
