Find Your Facemate — "Facial recognition to help you find love"

Screen Shot 2012-06-23 at 4.02.45 PM

A different approach to lookism.

From the website:

Smarter. Faster. Easier.

No long questionnaires.

1. Upload photo

2. Get FaceMatched

3. Find your FaceMate

More: "Find Your FaceMate is a revolutionary new online dating site that employs sophisticated facial recognition software and a proprietary algorithm to identify partners more likely to ignite real passion and compatibility. We employ The Science & Art of Love™ in fine tuning the search for meaningful relationships. Scientists offer compelling data on romantic chemistry and findings prove that passion is subconsciously ignited when we spot someone whose facial features are similar to our own."

Find Your Facemate was launched in March, 2011 by New Yorker Christina Bloom.

The company employs Face.com's facial recognition technology. 

Facebook last week bought Face.com, a five-year-old Israeli-based startup, for between $60 million and $100 million.

Facebook doesn't toss cash around randomly.

Look for an amped-up, tricked-out iteration of Find Your Facemate on Facebook in the not too distant future.

For hours he sat enraptured by the spring, at last recognizing himself but tortured by the realization that he could never possess the object of his infatuation. Narcissus was tormented, much as he had tormented all those who in the past had been unlucky enough to fall in love with him.
