Even though dating should be about having fun and meeting new people, it’s also about finding out if this person is potential mate material. I mean you want to know if the person sitting across from you has had serious run-ins with the law or has picked their nose since age seven. Thanks to this new iPhone and Android app, you might not be able to check about the nose picking habit, but you can get the deets on just about everything else.
Created by information commerce company, Intelius, Date Check does what the company does best, dig up dirt.Date Check is an app that lets users pull up all those juicy secrets that you want to know, but might be too shy to ask on the first or second date. With a flick of the wrist you can find out if a person has a criminal history via the sleeze detector. You can also see if they own real estate, or if they’re living with someone — say a spouse they might have forgotten to mention.
The app is currently available for free on the Android Marketplace and the Apple App Store.
While it may be a good idea to check whether that guy you’re going on a date with has a history of violent crime, or has a wife he forgot to mention, isn’t it an extreme invasion of privacy to check up on anything else, much less juicy secrets? And really, shouldn’t you have some base knowledge of the guy you are going out with?
