New Dating Website Helps You Find Someone Who Looks Just Like You



Because that's what we're all looking for, right? Christina Bloom is the founder of FindYourFacemate.com, which will open for business later this month. She says that she was inspired to build the website after people kept telling her that she and her ex-husband look a lot alike. So this website will use facial mapping software to match you up with someone like you:

Findyourfacemate.com is powered by facial-recognition technology developed by Face.com, which zeros in on nine points on each face—the eyes, ears, nose, chin, and the corners and center of the mouth—to find similarities.[...]

In a 1989 study published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, male and female “raters” were asked to judge the faces of 60 couples (some real, some strangers included as a control) on a nine-point scale, where 1 represented no similarity and 9 indicated the hypothetical case of opposite-sex twins. The average score for non-couples was 3.52; among actual couples, the average was 4.05. Concluded the study: “The results suggest that the observation of facial resemblance among couples appears to reflect a real phenomenon.”

On the floor of Tokyo
Or down in London town to go, go
With the record selection
And the mirror's reflection
I'm dancing with myself

When there's no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

Great concept! Really believe in it too, but not really the first. Ever heard about www.soul2match.com? They are the first facial recognition datingsite that introduced this concept. Here you can match your current relationship and/or find your look alike in their database. See http://bit.ly/guIga6

Of course, it's also possible that people in a relationship begin to resemble each other (much as people and their pets are reputed to).

Cause and effect might be switched here.
(Or, it may be that you are more likely to be compatible with one who you *could* more easily adapt to resemble.)

On a scale from 1 to 9, a result of 3.52 (non-couples) versus a 4.05 (actual couples) doesn't seem all that strong of a correlation [to what they wanted to prove]...
