    This Woman Went On A Date With A Man Who Was Her Perfect Match On Paper To See If It Translated To Real Life

    "Perfection doesn't exist, because you need that magic spark that you can't put your finger on."

    Relationship blogger Alexi Wasser had Glamour find a guy that matched her exact preferences and set them up on a date to see if there's such a thing as a perfect match.

    First, Alexi had to determine all the qualities she looks for in a partner.

    "You put so much pressure on the person you're dating [to be perfect]. So I think you have to figure out what are the most important things that matter to you, and hope to find as close to that as possible."

    Glamour made it easy for her by creating a giant list on a wall for her to really narrow it down.

    Meanwhile, men were interviewed to find the perfect match.

    After all the interviews, Alexi was told that she would be going on a date with her "perfect match" that night! She was nervous.

    When asked about her best case scenario, she said, "We'll fall in love, we'll make out, we'll laugh a lot. We'll be like, 'This is amazing! I can't believe this ridiculous, crazy experiment actually made me meet somebody cool.'"

    Although she wanted to back out of the whole thing, Alexi had to follow through with the date and meet Bryan, the person who most closely fit her preferences.

    He definitely encapsulated the qualities she was looking for...

    ...They even had the same favorite movie!

    But there were certain things about him she didn't love. Namely, that he was only 23, that he was an actor, and that he ordered veal at dinner, which, according to Alexi, is only on the menu as "a test to see if you're a bad human."

    Alexi thought that they were around 37% compatible, according to her list. But in actuality, they were 95.8% compatible.

    At the end of it all, Alexi realized that it's great to have a list, but even if you meet someone who totally fits it, "perfection doesn't exist."

    "You need that magic spark that you can't put your finger on. It's a feeling, it's an energy. That's what really matters."
