Has the online dating game become stale? wants to freshen things up for you with a new app called Crazy Blind Date. The app aims to eliminate the waiting period involved in setting up a date with an online match. With the app, meetups are set up with only a few hours' notice -- and you know nothing about them. You simply choose which nights you want to go on dates, select your favorite bar or coffee shop and the app selects a match based on sexual preference and geolocation. If you enjoy your date, you can purchase credits to give your match higher priority for being assigned to future dates.
