In the past, most people who decided to go on a date together knew each other in person beforehand, or had at least met in person when the invitation was offered. Today, many people find dates through websites or apps and have never met the person they are going on the date with in person prior to the date itself.
Before meeting an online date in person, it’s wise to get a background check to make sure they are who they say they are. Our team at Charlotte Private Investigator has performed countless background checks, and in this article, we will go over a few reasons why we encourage you to get someone’s background check before dating them.
- Find Out if Your Date is Really Single- One reason why we recommend running a background check before dating someone is because many people who visit dating sites aren’t actually single. Our team can investigate your date to make sure that they do not have any other partners they are hiding from you so that you don’t waste your time.
- Find Out if Your Date is Real- Another reason to run a background check before dating someone you met online is because many online dating profiles aren’t attached to real people. A common strategy for scammers is to set up numerous dating profiles to attract marks and try to squeeze money out of them. Our team can determine if your date is someone who’s looking for a connection or just a catfisher who wants to rip you off.
- Make Sure Your Date is Not Dangerous- A third reason to run a background check before dating someone is to keep yourself safe. Our team can investigate your date’s past to make sure they don’t have a history of violence or other crimes.
