I admit, I have a type — Stocky, strong-looking guys with dark hair. And if I was single, I’d be in luck — There’s now a website that lets you “build” your dream mate, then search for those just like him!
This is a real website, called iDreamofU. And in the interest of reporting for you Lovelies, I built an account to test it out. The first thing they ask is whether you’d like to go for an “Everyday Match,” an “Almost Famous Face” patterned on a celebrity or build one from the ground up. You know I chose to make my own!
I’m not trying to be a buzzkill here, because I think think this is a really interesting idea. And I’m also not trying to sound like one of those opposites-attract romantic comedies. I’m just saying, maybe trying to find someone who fits the exact idea in your head isn’t the healthiest thing to do.

You can’t determine everything about your mate in real life, which can be part of the fun of a relationship!
