The initial idea came to founder Christina Bloom after people frequently told her how much she and her boyfriend resembled each other. By uploading your photo on FaceMate, the dating site uses facial recognition software and a proprietary algorithm to identify potential compatible partners.

Based on similar facial features, Bloom believes these celebrities could ignite sparks if they met.  Bloom pairs Ellie Goulding and Drake; Britney Spears and Matt Czuchry; Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence; Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson; and Jennie Garth and John Stamos.
