For a cool $5K, a matchmaking service will find you a new mate who looks like your ex.
“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,” Talia Goldstein, the founder of Three Day Rule, told Mashable.
But the option comes with a price: Three Day Rule’s premium service costs $5,000 for a six-month package. This user base is typically a small demographic of high-end clients who don’t have time to find dates. Premium members are assigned professional matchmakers, who coach the client, meet with them, get to know their preferences and even go on pre-dates with potential mates as to not waste the member’s time. (The matches come directly from both Match and Three Day Rule’s database or the matchmaker’s personal network.)
Now, the matchmakers will ask for pictures of premium member’s ex-girlfriends or boyfriends to gauge the face shape its clients like most from those databases and networks.
“I’ve noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types,” Goldstein said. “I always ask my clients to send me photos of their exes. They say that they don’t have a type, but when I see the photos, to me they look very similar. The ex’s may be different ethnicities, or have different hair color, but their facial structures are the same.”
