We don't meet our significant others like we used to. Now that we have the internet, many Americans turn to online dating sites to find their life partners instead of friends, family, or real-life encounters.
While this can widen the pool of potential mates, it also makes it easier to come in contact with potentially dangerous people. Luckily, the increase in online dating has also increased the popularity of online dating background checks. One study found that 29% of people have searched online for information about someone they were currently dating or about to meet for a first date.
So would you run a background check on someone you're dating?
If you're thinking about running one is that grounds to dump them in the first place?
