Have you ever been walking down the street or on the subway and you see someone who sparks your interest? Wishing you had the courage to say something or a way to break the ice before the moment slips by and your chance is lost! Well I am pretty sure a majority of you would say ‘Yes’ to this question, as I have had many of these occurrences myself. There is definitely a love/hate relationship about dating in the city. Sometimes it can be exciting to go on a first date, other times it can seem like a lot of work to meet new people, and then there is the unfortunate experience of a really bad blind date.
Luckily for us single ones, there is a hot new option over the typical online dating sites with painfully long profiles and hours of searching for a normal looking person who you hope put up a current picture of themselves. It’s called Cheek’d and it’s a fun, unique twist on how to maneuver through the dating scene. These little black cards with witty one-liners are a great way to get someone’s attention without all of the pressure. In addition to the one liner each card has ‘find me at: www.cheekd.com’ and a unique code that allows access to view your profile. Don’t worry the profile only gives a glimpse of who you are and does not take a long time to fill out. There are about six questions, such as ’your most played iPod song’ and the responses cannot be longer than what fits on a business card. Once the person you chose to give a card to checks out your profile they can send you a message and the communication begins. Depending on the interaction you can decide if you want to take it a step further and meet in person. (Founder Lori Cheek pictured below)
Cheek’d brings the social aspect back into dating and moves it from your computer or the night bar scene to your everyday life. When you are standing in line waiting for a coffee or walking your dog in the park don’t let another chance pass you by. I have had a lot of fun feeling like at any moment I may notice someone I would like to give one of my cards to and I am excited to see who the first person will be! My roommate loved the idea so much she decided to get Cheek’d cards of her own. So don’t let yourself be the last to get in on the Cheek’d scene!
