  • I guess so but I don't think I would ever date someone who I thought needed a background check. LOL.

  • If I had the access to do so sure why not!

  • I'd do some sort of check. I'd check criminal records online (free), I'd check sites like and and make sure he's not some jerk that uses women or married and lying about it. There are a lot of con guys out there. I'd also check and when the listing comes up make sure some woman's name doesn't come up. So many of these guys lie and say they are single and available.

  • i can't imagine it, i mean if you felt the need to than yes. but i don't think i'd date someone i felt needed me to run a background check on them. i might google someone to see what comes up but that'd be it, i don't see myself paying to have a background check run on someone though

  • I guess you could especially if you don't know them, you never know who people pretend to be these days.
