Who are you?

Cupid Shield is a site dedicated to keeping you safe from heartbreak. Cupid Shield is a searchable date database, created entirely by other Cupid Shield members who are willing to share information on their dates and online communication.

Why Did you start your business?

Sometimes there just isn't a mutual understanding of the boundaries of our relationships. Are we exclusive? Are we dating each other, but also others? Have we agreed to be exclusive, but may still be dating a little on the side? Is there a chance that one of us may flat out just be cheating? I wanted to find a way to help ease relationship worry & stress. In many relationships, one person is more dedicated to their partner than the other and may not realize they both aren't on the same page. In these cases, much time is wasted - sometimes years.

What makes your business unique?

Dating is easier than ever in this day and age. With so many dating websites, you could meet one or several new people each day. Compared to going out and meeting new people face-to-face, this method is fast, easy, and also very addictive. The Cupid Shield date database functions as a search engine for records of dates. You can search by name, username, location, or physical features to see if your search subject has recently been on dates or has been communicating through dating or other websites.

What's the biggest mistake you've made with your business and what did you learn from it??

Not being more aggressive with the idea. It has been just over two years since this site idea originally entered my mind and it is just finally coming together.

what big goal do you have for your company and how do you plan to achieve it?

My goal is to grow Cupid Shield into the go-to site for those who don't want to waste time on relationships that aren't going anywhere.

what advice or tips do you have for people wanting to start their own business or follow their dreams?

You might fail, but if you believe in something and if just the thought of it makes you happy, that is reason enough for anyone to follow their dreams. If it doesn't work out the way you thought it would, don't let that stop you from dreaming.
