If you've been swiping your little heart out to no avail, perhaps it's time to ditch Tinder and try a different approach to dating. You know — something that's based on a little more than looks. Enter: Align, the new Los Angeles-based app launching today that connects you with your match made in astrological heaven.

How does it work? Based on your sign, the app presents you with a list of adjectives and emojis. You choose the six you identify with the most, which then appear on your profile. Instead of having to sift through endless matches that miss the mark, Align gives you a neat-and-tidy roundup of just five matches per day. You also get a detailed report explaining how you two galactic lovebirds would get along. If both people choose to align, you'll be able to exchange messages. So far, the app is only available in L.A.

And, if it's successful? Good-bye star-crossed lovers, hello cosmically-compatible couples! Well, maybe. Hey, it's worth a try, right?
