Online dating is fine, but sometimes it helps to have a more physical connection when scouting out the perfect mate, especially when you don’t feel like leaving your house. That’s when “Smell Dating” becomes your perfect option.
The concept is simple, if also completely ridiculous. For the minimal fee of just $25, Smell Dating sends you a T-shirt, which you are asked to wear for three days straight—both day and night—without deodorant. You then send the shirt back to Smell Dating in the included prepaid envelope. These filthy, odor-filled shirts are then cut up into swaths and sent to other people in the service where everyone gets a chance to smell each other’s shirts. “If someone whose smell you like likes the smell of you too, we'll facilitate an exchange of contact information,” the service proclaims. And then, of course, “The rest is up to you.”
