For Immediate Release:
NEW YORK, NY – Despite the soaring popularity of online dating, there’s one inherent flaw: You never really know whom (or what) you’re going to get. Cheek’d http://cheekd.com is a clever new service that introduces real-life spontaneity to online dating. According to its founder and namesake, Lori Cheek, “the concept promotes the use of an intriguing and provocative set of business card sized introductions used to engage a romantic prospect when feeling awkward, shy or simply desiring a new approach.”
Whether it’s in a bar, at the gym or at the dog park, Cheek’d users can express their interest in someone by coyly handing them a small black card that contains a cheeky phrase such as “act natural. we can get awkward later.” or “i just put all my drinks on your tab.” The recipient is invited to go online to check out your profile and decide whether he or she would like to make contact with you through the Cheek’d internal messaging service (personal information and privacy are protected).
“Everyone knows that men and women tend to exaggerate their social merits on online dating networks and Cheek’d provides a way to reverse engineer the process. You see someone attractive, you make eye contact (or perhaps even offer a wink), then you hand off the card; its easy, adventurous and risk-free. The company, which launched in New York City in May, envisions a fast-growing number of adults with online dating experience, will find Cheek’d a refreshing alternative to online profile browsing,” notes Lori Cheek.
When you compare the costs of popular online-only dating sites, Cheek’d offers a compelling value proposition. For a nominal fee ($25 to join), Cheek’d users receive their online profile and a set of 50 cards – each with a different phrase - and a unique ID number to direct those who receive the cards to the online profile to learn more about the card giver. Your first month’s service comes with your initial deck of cards. Each month thereafter, the fee is just $9.95. Trial decks of 5 cards are also available for $5 and also include your first month’s service.
