Ever meet one of those couples that look like one another? Oh God, maybe they even DRESS like one another. (Ughhhh, that's the worst.) I guess it happens from time to time, or maybe over time: people end up resembling one another. Regardless, I'm not sure if hunting down someone who could be your fraternal twin is the key to true love. But a new dating site says it is.
The three-month-old site, FindYourFaceMate.com, uses facial recognition software to match singles with other singles who look like them. Founder Christina Bloom married a guy who looked very similar to her, so she really truly believes in "the science behind" the phenomenon and wants to help people meet their soul mates. Awww.
Her aim would be totally sweet, if it wasn't also totally creeptastic.
Sure, we all tend to go for people who have features that, if not outright look familiar to us, at least feel that way. As much as my boyfriend would totally groan and roll his eyes with mock disgust if I pointed it out, I must remind him -- at least on a subconscious level -- of his mom, given the naturally brunette hair and certain features she and I share.
But intentionally, consciously seeking out someone who looks just like us is taking it TOO FAR.
Is this cool or CREEPY??
