According to, online dating is so last year. Now, if you're thinking romance, look to your mobile phone.

After posting an online profile and adding a cell phone number, the website will text your phone when a possible match is nearby using GPS technology. People are calling this new development "mobile romance" and it is apparently doing very well in China.

Services similar to mobile romancing are making their way across the ocean to the United States and Canada.
