Match.Com To Pair Using Ex's Photos


A strange new feature on Match.com allows users to find their future partner... using pictures of exes. We all have a type, and the dating website will soon allow premium users to upload photos of ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends so that it's facial recognition feature can determine who you'd be attracted to.

However, this feature doesn't come cheap. According to Mashable, for a $5,000 upgrade the premium service will pair users with LA dating service Three Day Rule for six months.

Three Day Rule's founder Talia Goldstein told Mashable, "I've noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types. I always ask my clients to send me photos of their exes. They say that they don't have a type, but when I see the photos, to me they look very similar. The ex's may be different ethnicities, or have different hair color, but their facial structures are the same."

Facial recognition isn't the only part of the algorithm, but some people wouldn't go on a date with their ex if they got paid $5,000.
