Find a date on Match.com ... using pics of your ex

Chances are, you have a type and it's a lot like your ex.

That's what online dating site Match.com is banking on with the introduction of a facial recognition feature to help users find dates.

In the weeks ahead, users will be able to upgrade to a premium service, which asks them to send pictures of exes to determine the type of look they're attracted to.

But the option comes with a price.

The premium service by Los Angeles-based matchmaking service Three Day Rule costs $5,000 for a six-month package.

"I've noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types," Three Day Rule founder Talia Goldstein told Mashable. "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."
