Definition: Online Dating

(Internet dating) - A personal introductory system whereby individuals can find and contact each other over the Internet to arrange a date, usually with the objective of developing a personal, romantic, or sexual relationship. Online dating services usually provide unmoderated matchmaking over the Internet, through the use of personal computers or cell phones. Users of an online dating service would usually provide personal information, to enable them to search the service provider's database for other individuals. Members use criteria other members set, such as age range, gender and location.

"Often, we act first and think later, but doing so compromises the safety of ourselves and our loved ones..."

Once considered sordid or downright dangerous, online dating today has become a viable method for finding that special someone. Launched nationwide in November 2014, DatingBackgrounds.com employs private investigators who perform thorough, intensive background checks for $124.99, obtaining information from criminal and civil courts to offer their customers online dating safety.

With the ubiquity of consumer technology, approximately one in every 10 American adults has used an online dating site or mobile app. Singles from all walks of life seek a safe online dating experience free of potential pitfalls, such as scams and fraudulent identities.

According to a study published by the Pew Internet Research Project, some 53 percent of Internet users agree, "online dating allows people to find a better match for themselves because they can get to know a lot more people." But how do users safely navigate the online dating world

"Often, we act first and think later, but doing so compromises the safety of ourselves and our loved ones," says private investigator Bill Lamb, who founded Dating Backgrounds based on the principles of Education and Protection as the cornerstones of safe online dating. "All background search companies are NOT created equal, and many background companies claim to access information online or through an app that is simply not accessible through such channels."

The benefits of background checks for online daters include:

  • Financial security against scams perpetrated within the online dating community.
  • Physical safety for LGBT men and women, who are oftentimes subject to abuse based on their sexual orientation.
  • Empowerment and peace of mind, especially for the record numbers of Seniors and Baby Boomers who have turned to online dating for love and companionship.

Lamb's staff of licensed private investigators works personally with consumers to answer questions and address specific concerns. Unlike other online dating background services that lack the investigative resources to achieve truly effective results, the professionals at DatingBackgrounds.com use information from the courts system to compile accurate, comprehensive background checks.
