Some people may see this as elite level snobbery, but when some ‘Mensans’ were asked for information on their dating life and opinions on this new advancement, they replied positively.

“I’m looking for people who are intellectually curious. And when all you’re talking about is sports teams and barbeques … when you’re talking about physical traits and not existential philosophy, I’m not going to get the vibe.” Stated Mensa member Anne Sereg on CNN

According to Match.com’s information, 80% of their user base say that finding someone with a similar intelligence level as them is a must or at least very important. To take this to the extreme, Mensa member Peter Baimbridge remarked (on national Television) that those with an IQ of “around 60 are probably a carrot” as seen on Mirror.co.uk.

In addition to Mensa Match, Mensa members can also elect to have a special badge applied to their profile to flaunt their achievement.

Do you have a hard time letting go? Possible attachment issues? Match.com has the answer for you!

Thanks to a new advancement in their technologies, Match.com now gives users the option to search for a new relationship candidate based purely on their facial structure. It has been reported that Match.com are running this service through Los Angeles-based facial recognition experts Three Day Rule – as reported by Mashable.com.

In a more scientific and positive approach, Three Day Rule’s founder Talia Goldsetin stated:

“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” Mashable.com

As with all new technology however this comes with a hefty price tag of $5,000 USD, which includes a six month total package. Not only do you get access to the facial recognition technology, but you receive a personal ‘dating guidance councillor’ (matchmaker) who will meet with you to determine your wants and needs, sift through potential applicants and even go on pre-dates to determine the candidates potential.

To help determine the type you’re after, this matchmaker will process photo’s of your ex-partners and use Three Day Rule’s software to help determine some potential matches.

Goldstein also stated:

“I’ve noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types. 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.”  Mashable.com

For those desperately seeking love, what have you got to lose? This service can be found on Match.com
