A simple Seek Verify background check is the easiest and most convenient way of putting your mind at ease.
Carefully vetting a potential date is nothing to be ashamed of nor is it morally questionable. There are countless examples of how online dating generates possibilities for dishonesty and wrongdoing.
A recent study by Pew Research Center in Washington found that 30 percent of online daters search for information about their possible dates before meeting them.
This figure rises to 41 percent among 18- to 29-year olds.
In this case, users can review public information made available by local government offices or conduct full criminal background checks with services like to find out if their date can be trusted.
Some online dating platforms like e Harmony.com, and Sparks Networks (operator of JDate and Christian Mingle) have even begun scanning clients for instances of sexual assault, identity theft, and violence since 2012.
