Whether dating for a while now or you are starting out, your safety should always be the number one factor in play.

With this in mind, could you be dating someone who in fact is trouble?

Sure, it can be hard especially early on to determine if someone has bad intentions. That said you never want to jeopardize your safety in trying to find out.

So, how do you go about learning who someone is without seeming like you are too nosy?

Will Online Searches Help You Out?

In your efforts to try and determine if the person you are out on a date with may be trouble, will you turn to the Internet?

By going online ahead of time, you could opt for a public people search.

In doing this, assuming you have the full name of the individual, plug it in online and see what turns up. Note that Search Quarry and others provide info on people when one searches on the Internet.

For instance, what if they have a criminal record and did not inform you of this? Would you be more angry or scared when finding out? The bottom line is making sure you know what you are dealing with ahead of time.

Second, you may also turn to their social media page or pages.

While many are smart not to put anything incriminating on their social pages, others do. As such, you may discover something about them that leads you to pause going out on a date with the individual.

At the end of the day, your safety should always be the number one thing on your mind.

  • Your date won’t talk about any legal issues they may have.
  • Your date keeps you at a distance at times
  • Your date is never available at certain times for reasons other than work
  • Your date does not want you visiting them at their home
