Several years ago, I started dating my best friend. At the time, it made perfect sense. We were inseparable, we had so much in common, we were extremely close, and when we realized we had feelings for each other that surpassed being just friends, it seemed almost silly not to date each other. Especially since we were both single and had been single for a while - a factor that we didn't take into consideration as something that was weighing heavily on our decision. Needless to say, it didn't work out.
When it comes to your social media image, you have to be VERY careful which words to use to describe yourself, as this can have a huge impact on how people perceive you. When it comes to online dating, there are people who are looking for the right mix of personality. Your profile is your only way to convey that mix, which will then urge them to get to know you better. While selecting the right profile picture can be easy, the profile is where the real challenge begins. What words should you choose, among the thousands of words out there, to best describe yourself on social media and online dating? Apparently, there are still females out there who are looking for the manly man in terms of physique. Move over, dad bod.
Finding a partner who looks just like you. Or at least that's the theory behind FindYourFaceMate. Once you upload your picture, the site uses facial recognition technology to zoom in on nine points of your face - your eyes, ears, nose, chin, as well as the corners and center of your mouth - to find you a match. When it spots "face mates," it alerts the pair. The would-be matchmaker said her notion that people are more attracted to those that look like them came from personal experience and years of observation. Then I started noticing couples everywhere I went. Bloom wrote a small gift book on the theory and later launched a blog, but about a year and a half ago she decided to get serious about putting her theory to work.
