Match.com Will Find You A New Man Who Looks Just Like Your Ex For $5K
This sounds a little creepy… Sort of like those dolls you can have made in your child’s exact image.
There is a matchmaking company that will match you up with someone who looks like your ex.
So if you can’t live without your ex and you have $5,000 hanging around, you can get what’s called “white-glove” dating service offered by Three Day Rule in conjunction with Match.com. You just have to send in photos of your ex, and Three Day Rule will try to find a more suitable mate who still physically resembles your former mate. The service is only available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. As Three Day Rule opens up in other cities the service will be offered as well.
While this sound like the worse thing to do if you are trying to get over your failed relationship, according to the Three Day Rule, it’s more about physical attraction and preferences. “If you like one facial structure, you will probably like someone with a similar facial structure,” explains Three Day Rule founder Talia Goldstein. For that money you get more than a matchup. Coaches will interview you in person and even go on pre-dates with potential matches to help weed out the undesirables, reports Time.
It will be interesting to see how many people sign up for this option that just launched on June 25th. Some 11 percent of American adults have used an online dating site or a mobile dating app, according to a 2013 Pew Research Center study. And since 2005, 38 percent of people who identify themselves as single have used such services. “Pew found that over the last eight years, the number of people who went on a date with someone they met online grew to 66 percent, a significant increase from 43 percent in 2005,” reports TechCrunch. Most (59 percent) were thought that “online dating is a good way to meet people,” compared to 44 percent in 2005.
