Back in the day, you used to have to go through the arduous task of going out into the world, talking to a member of the opposite sex to determine common interests, and then make a leap of faith to begin the dating process. These days, thanks to the Foursquare API, we have a few apps that can help simplify the process.
Like Me Date Me is a new dating site built on top of the Facebook Graph API, which provides search-able access to user profile information. The service displays a photo and limited profile information of whichever gender you want to see. As the name of the site implies, users can "like" others, which can then lead to more interaction. The ratings approach, encouraging snap judgments, is similar to HotOrNot, which also added an option to meet the people you rate.
Yes, you read that title correctly. WhereTheLadies.At is, indeed, a thing that exists. Before you get start joking around, let's be honest. Checking in all the time on Foursquare has earned you nothing but Mayorships and a free slice of pizza every once in a while. Well, that's about to change.

The ol' mid-date excuse to cut things short has an upgrade from a new mashup. Escape My Date reacts to a Twitter message for help and dispatches pre-selected friends to call you. The excuse, it seems, is still up to you to figure out.
