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.

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