(WJLA) - Creepy? Or helpful?

The Washington Post reports that popular online dating site Match.com has partnered up with the professional matchmaking service Three Day Rule to offer customers facial recognition services to pair them up with potential new flames - based on what their exes look like.

By providing the service with photos of some of your exes, a Match.com member can access Three Day Rule's database of local faces to find new dates that physically resemble their exes - their presumed "type."

According to the Post, while some might find that creepy, the CEO of Three Day Rule says it actually makes sense because it recognizes the principle that "attractiveness means something different to different people."
