Chemistry coupon dating
If you've had enough of disappointing first dates, this new app could herald a new era of dating where you have sexual chemistry with every person you meet.
A genetics-based app called Pheramor has pinpointed 11 genes that link to our pheromones and therefore whether we are sexually compatible with someone.
Experts say this information could reveal how diverse someone's immune system is compared to our own - and all you have to do is take a swab from your cheek.
People can take swabs from their cheek in order to isolate the 11 key genes that control how attracted we are to other people.
The data from the swab is then combined with personality traits from the user's social media profile.
Unlike other apps, Pheramor involves pulling details from someone's profile - such as what bands they like or what books they read.
The app, which is focused on young professionals between the age of 18 and 44, removes the bias associated with creating your own dating profile, the creators say.
The co-founders are hoping to launch the app in February.
They need 3,000 members before they can officially launch in Houston.
Users would take swabs from their cheek in order to isolate the key genes that link to our pheromones.
The data from the swab is then combined with personality traits from the user's social media profile.'When we smell pheromones, what we're actually smelling is how diverse someone's immune system is compared to our own,' Brittany Barreto, who has a doctorate in genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, told Houston Chronicle.'Evolution is very strong.
So we're smelling each other, trying to figure out who is the best person to mate with', she said.'And that's what love at first sight actually is.
It's smelling someone's pheromones from across the room, and your brain says, 'Oh my Gosh, that's the most perfect pheromone profile I've ever smelled in my entire life.
