Match.com to pair using ex's photos

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.

Why on Earth would you want your new companion to remind you of someone you hate?

I get great looking chicks all the time without using a dating site. I look fairly ugly to. I get fat ugly chicks whenever I use a dating site. Those chicks like to bang to. I have fun with them and admire their bodies. But I don't keep them. Who wants to be seen around town with a turtle chick from a dating site? Those nice looking photos on dating sites are fake by the way. Their chicks from over seas. Better off to master bait then to use a dating site - unless you want a chubby chick to have fun with.
