Would You Want to Date Yourself?

When you look in the mirror, do you think to yourself, there’s the person I’ve been looking for all my life!!

I know there are a few of you who answered “yes.” You guys should probably take some time, and possibly some therapy, to think about why you answered that way.

But for the rest of us, it’s a little creepy, right, to think of dating someone who looks just like you?

Well, I think it is. But apparently, I’m behind the times — a new dating site, called findyourfacemate.com, matches users’ facial features with other, similar-looking folk. The site is set to launch this month. Time magazine reports:

…it is powered by facial-recognition technology that zeros in on nine points on the face to find similarities. Then, once those matches are made, users can select from those similarly looking candidates who might also share some of their own personal traits.

In other words, they can find themselves. Narcissism at its worst? Or science? Discuss.
