In today’s world of online dating, a person could effectively be anyone on an online dating profile, they can lie about their age, their weight, and their marital status.
And the same technology available to us today can also save you a lot of heartache and time. If you take a few minutes (sometimes minutes is all it takes to check someone out) then you can quickly determine if someone is telling the truth or is a liar.
1. You can check a person’s age by running the man or woman’s name through a free people search like Veromi.com, you do need their last name to do this.
2. While there is no surefire way to tell if a person is married (unless you live in a state that keeps records of marriages and divorces) the best free way is to look on Veromi and see any other people associated with the person in question ( they will show up in one of the side bars (generally these people are children and spouses) Another way to tell if someone is married is to purchase a report on them which will give you their address, by running this address through google, you will come up with sites like Trulia.com and Blockshopper.com who can tell you if there is a co-owner on the property, if this person is of the opposite sex and has the same name, more than likely this person is married or at least has been in the past.
3. Once you have run these checks, the last one you should check is if the person in question is a sex offender. You can check this by running them through a free checker like http://www.familywatchdog.us/
I don’t care how nice someone is on a dating site or over the phone, ALWAYS do your homework before you meet ANYONE. Better safe then sorry!
