Smell Dating is now a thing.

Man with sweat under arms

With the countless amount of apps and websites that pull people into the dating world, it was only a matter of time before something like this emerged. Smell Dating aims to match people through scent. On the surface it doesn’t sound like a bad idea. After-all, smell is a very powerful sense. It triggers memories and people can become attracted to a person from the pheromones they give off. I get it. Then, I read about how this is conducted.

So, according to the website, they send you a t-shirt. You wear the shirt for three days and three night without deodorant. You mail the shirt back in a prepaid envelope. You get samples to smell of other people who will be getting your sample. Then, if you both mutually like each others scent, BAM!  A connection is made.

Wait, back up a second. “You wear the shirt for three days and three nights without deodorant.” Three days!?  Are people actually comfortable doing that?  Most people have jobs. If I don’t have the patience to do this during a long weekend, should I wear this shirt under my work clothes? Even then, no woman would be turned on by the stench of my overwhelmingly ripe body odor after three full days that include a couple trips to the gym. It just won’t happen.

I think its cool that people are trying to find new ways to connect. I just don’t want to compromise my personal hygiene in the process and watch the paint peel off the walls around me as I stink up a shirt. (source)
