Research has shown that we’re attracted to people who look like us – similar facial features inspire trust.

Such look-alike partnering happens all the time, but some who believe facial similarities are a head start to a good relationship aren’t leaving it to chance. A new dating Web site that uses facial recognition to suggest pairings based on shared facial characteristics is giving Cupid a hand.
