Lonely this Valentine’s Day? Missing that je ne sais quoi with someone new? Thinking of signing up for an Internet dating service?
A new Canada-based startup, Instant Chemistry, was started by people who understand an important limitation to online dating: You can find the perfect match who checks off all the right boxes, but without chemistry, the relationship is likely to be DOA. The solution? Your DNA.
The company claims to have turned this elusive “chemistry” into a science. Apparently there are three genes in the Major Histocompatibility Complex that “play an important role in biological compatibility.” These genes are part of your immune system, and contribute to your particular body scent. So, Instant Chemistry can help set you up with someone who smells awesome to you! And there are extra perks, too,
"Children born to couples with very different immune system genes are more likely to successfully defend themselves against a greater variety of infections. But not only do biologically compatible partners produce children with strong immune systems, these couples also enjoy more satisfying sex lives, greater marital stability, increased fertility rates – and they find each other more attractive!"
