Dating safely online and offline should always be a priority.

While looking for love online, take some additional steps such as seeing if you have Facebook friends in common, downloading your date’s photos into Google Image reverse search at If someone’s photos seem to good to be true and your date looks like a model or stock photo, it would be good to check their social networking sites such as Facebook or Instagram to see if they match up.

If your date refuses to go on a Skype or video date, perhaps they are hiding something.

They project to the future and feel like they are in an instant relationship.

Remember that you’re a member of a dating site, he’s a member of a dating site, and chances are everyone is dating multiple people.

I can’t stress enough the importance of taking your time in getting to know someone.

Since our non-profit is strongly in favor of criminal background screening those employees coming to do service work in the home, we think that same principle extends to online dating.

Is it common to have a background screen performed on your date before meeting? There are no sites that require a background check that I’m aware of at this point, although many make that feature available to their members at an additional cost.

It’s important to trust your intuition and meet your date in a public place.

If you’re uncomfortable for any reason, just pick up and leave.

If your relationship is starting to become more serious or you’re thinking of becoming exclusive, conducting a background search is a wise move.

Just like businesses check out employees before hiring them, singles should know as much as they can about the person they are thinking of having an intimate relationship with. Some meet their special someone on the first date, others can take years before they connect.

Understand that the more you date, the better dater you become.

I always tell singles that I’m coaching to cast a wide net and look at dating as meeting someone that could become a friend, a business contact, or if you’re lucky, someone that can become your one in 40 million.
