Match.com is launching new dating site that only lets you join if you're smart enough.
We're the smartest-looking couple in a stock photo.
Match.com has joined forces with Mensa to create the brilliantly titled Mensa Match. On the site, singles can only be matched with each other if they have been vetted by Mensa, which requires that you test at or above the 98th percentile of a standardized intelligence test. Finally, there is a place we can ship all the smarties so they can stop bothering us stupids on our dating sites.
"Eighty percent of singles rate intelligence as one of the most important factors when looking for a partner, finally proving that brainpower is the ultimate aphrodisiac," Match.com President Amarnath Thombre said in a statement. "Partnering with Mensa now gives Match members another smart way to easily search for and connect with like-minded singles."
To whet your appetite, here's a list of prominent mensans:
Bob Speca, Jr.: Professional domino toppler.
Linda Warwick: Creator and producer of the billboard mega-hit childrens' videos, "Babymugs!," and the "Toddler TOGS" series--the fantasy video for highly creative tots.
Dr. Abbie F. Salny: Author of the Mensa "Quiz-a-Day" books and calendars.
Fuuuuuck. So it's like that? How do I get me some smart strange?
Mensa and Match are currently administering a practice IQ test for the mentally deficient price of $1 through July 6.
