A recent article by a Singles' Guide asked the question: “Should You Background Check Your Date?”
The author told the story of a recently divorced single mother of two in her twenties who joined a dating website and accepted a date with a man who was attractive, polite, well spoken, and nicely dressed. However, when the woman mentioned her date’s name to her co-worker the next day, she was told never to see him again because he was a convicted felon and had spent several years in jail.
When the woman confronted the man on their second date with what her co-worker had claimed, he admitted that he had been in jail three times, once for robbery and the other times for drugs – convictions that would have shown up on a routine background check. Although she felt like he deserved a second chance, the woman had two small children to think about and wasn’t willing to risk their safety, so she decided to break off the budding relationship. She was left wondering if she should background check all of her future dates.
Stories like this are more common than most people think, especially in today's technology-oriented society, where daily socialization has taken to the computer. With social networking forums like MySpace and Facebook – and a plethora of dating sites such as Match.com and eHarmony.com – you can instantly be connected to individuals around the globe. These communication bases can pose a great risk if you don't know who you are "connecting" with, and background checks are becoming a normal and necessary step for meeting people online.
