Please tell me this has happened to someone else too!
I was downtown today for a meeting and just got back to the office about an hour ago. I reached into my purse to grab my blackberry and there was a black business card that read:
You’ve been Cheek’d
I’m going to make this easy for you, find me at <website> <passcode>
I had NO idea what it meant, but clearly the card had been slipped into my purse when I wasn’t looking. I went to the website thinking it was just a marketing ploy, but it’s from an actual person who wants to date me!!! OMG!!!!
I am creeped out right now and want to go home, shower and hide!! 🙁

Yikes!! Creepy! The dude was close enough to put something in your purse but didn’t notice that you’re wearing a ring??!!

Wow, that is just plain creepy. Definitely check and make sure nothing was taken out of your purse.

That is both disturbing and disgusting at the same time.
How incredibly creepy and invasive. I would flip if someone put something in my purse that I didn’t realize. Yuck.

Cheek’d provides a fun and non-intimidating way to meet that intriguing stranger who just sparked your interest.
How it works:
Because sometimes it’s better to let a card do the talking for you, Cheek’d provides members with a deck of 50 cards, each bearing a flirtatious comment to charm and pique the curiosity of your intended . Also on the card, is your unique code linked to a private online profile that you’ve created. With card in hand, the object of your affection can enter your unique code learn more about you and send you a message. Privacy protected and missed connection averted.

@PrairieGirl: I know!!! That’s what I thought, I had my ring on!!! (like I do every day!)
@mrsmdphd: Someone just posted and explained it – apparently you purchase these cards to give out and they have a passcode to your online profile. The profile doesn’t actually give any info, it’s dumb stuff like “last ipod song” “next stop on the train” stuff like that.
@MsJ26: Yeah I have NO idea who this person is! This is so creepy! 🙁
