Gizmodo-  Match.com recently announced a partnership with Three Day Rule, a personalized matchmaking service that will find you a date that looks like your ex. You simply send them some pictures, and they find a match. The service costs $5,000 for six month membership. And it’s creepy as hell.

“I’ve noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types,” Talia Goldstein, the founder of Three Day Rule, told Mashable. “People have a type and it’s not necessarily about height or race or hair color, but a lot of it is about face shape.”

And what better way to find that special shape than 21st-century facial recognition software? You get more than just creepiness with your new super premium Match.com membership, though. Three Day Rule also supplies a professional matchmaker who will meet with you, discuss your “type,” and even prescreen dates so you don’t waste your time with types you won’t like. The company calls this “a unique, curated online dating experience for relationship-oriented singles.”

I understand what Match.com is thinking.  If you have a certain “type”of fish, it would be nice to steered in the right direction of the sea, right?  This should all work amongst reasonable people.  However, once your significant other finds out he/she is a pseudo-clone of your ex and that’s what you were looking for?  Reasonable goes out the window and that’s where the proverbial shit will hit the proverbial fan.  You will be either covered in doo doo or your own blood.  These people’s blood is on your hands, Match.com.

Here are some other ideas that the Match.com people must have thrown around.
