What can you use the app for?

Soul2Match is a dating website that takes a different approach to getting couples together. Rather than focusing on questionnaires or personal information, the user submits their photo. The site works around the idea that happy couples tend to share similar physical characteristics. The site also mentions that people tend to be most attracted to those who resemble their genetic counterparts. The site provides the user with a score to see how well two people match based on the physical characteristics seen in their photographs. The user can upload or link a photo or take a new photograph using a web camera to get started. Soul2Match focuses on more than 1,000 points on the user’s face to determine which potential partners make the best matches.
