With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, many folks have turned to online dating sites to help find their perfect match. But one company has taken their soul-mate finding techniques to a new, creepier, level.

Match.com has partnered with Three Day Rule, a matchmaking service in L.A., to use facial recognition to find your perfect match.

Customers of Match.com will be able to upgrade to a premium service from Three Day Rule for six months. But it comes with a hefty price tag: $5,000.

This service also asks for pictures of your ex to help find a new match.

"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," [said] Talia Goldstein, the founder of Three Day Rule ...

"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 exes may be different ethnicities, or have different hair color, but their facial structures are the same."

The Three Day Rule premium service also includes professional matchmakers who work with their clients to find the best match for them. They will even go on "pre-dates" with a potential match to make sure that the premium member doesn't waste time.
