We’ve all heard of the Golden Ratio, or De Divina Proportione, believed to be the most aesthetically-pleasing facial proportions. Just because you don’t have the perfect proportions doesn’t mean you can’t find love, according to FaceMate. A new, free online dating site launched in March 2011, FaceMate believes that the success to finding a meaningful relationship may be finding a partner whose facial features are similar to our own.
Powerful chemistry between two people, says FaceMate, almost always reveals facial feature matches. “It’s sometimes hard to discern due to hairstyle or color of skin or weight, but if we focus on the features, we see strong similarity coincides with strong passion,” the website says.
Proving that similar facial features equal true love, the site put it to the test with celebrity couples. Looking at photographs of Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, FaceMate says that this power couple truly makes quite the match: the rounded chins, close-set eyes, and identical face outline all point to true love. And although Twilight’s Kellan Lutz is reportedly in a relationship, FaceMate found that Scarlett Johansson would be a good match–the striking resemblance shows that they could be perfect together.
Some scientists believe that romantic chemistry proves that passion is subconsciously ignited when we spot someone whose facial features are similar to our own. Examining 67 different points on the face from a photo you upload to FaceMate, the website uses facial recognition software coupled with a proprietary algorithm to identify partners more likely to spark real passion and compatibility.
They say opposites attract, but maybe now we can also say those with similar facial features do, too.
