“Talk to anyone using these dating sites about their experiences, and you'll hear the same story again and again.

They loved everything about this person on paper, but when they got to having a conversation with them, there was just no spark.”The latest trend in online dating is taking us back to the past: the days when your best friend set you up on a blind date with her cute next-door neighbor.

Cheek’d reverses traditional online dating by selling sets of sleek, black business cards to hand out at the bar, with lines like “Act natural.

We can get awkward later” or “I’m hitting on you” or “Emotionally available.” If your crush is intrigued, they can log onto Cheek’d to see a simple profile with some cute factoids about you, like your latest passport stamp and most played i Pod song.

Nary an arrow from Cupid’s quiver has stung as much as the volleys launched by dating sites against each other.
