Match.com can get your next date to look like your ex. Creepy

Match.com has just announced it’s providing THE creepiest service possible, taking personalised matchmaking to a whole new level.

In partnership with Three Day Rule, the dating website will find you a date who looks like your ex. You simply send them some pictures, and they find a match. The service costs $5,000 (£2,950) for a six-month membership. Yep, we did say it was creepy!

Speaking to Mashable, the founder of Three Day Rule, Talia Goldstein said: “I’ve noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types, and it’s not necessarily about height or race or hair colour, but a lot of it is about face shape.”

And what better way to find that face shape you can’t get enough of than facial recognition software?

You get more than just creepiness with your new premium Match.commembership, though. Three Day Rule also supplies a professional matchmaker who will meet with you, discuss your “type” and even prescreen dates so you don’t waste your time with types you won’t like.

We’re just wondering who will be more creeped out; Your ex? Or your potential future lover who’s been selected because they look like your ex? Also, does this mean we can just get a picture of either of The Two Best-Looking Ryans In The World (Gosling and Reynolds) and Match.com will find us someone who looks like them? If so, we’re in!
