The Private Detective Announces Importance of Background Checks in Online Dating

Share Article

With online dating sites set to be worth £150m by 2014, The Private Detective has announced the importance of conducting background checks on potential dates.

People can pretend to be whoever they like online and it’s important to obtain whether the person you could potentially let into your private life is completely genuine.

Recent research has shown that 15 million singles in the UK are registered for online dating. The online dating industry has enjoyed a boom in recent years, with 1 in 5 relationships beginning online, and 1 in 10 singles worldwide using dating sites.

In such a growing industry, there is an increasing need for people to remain safe online and when meeting for dates. With the nature of the internet, it can be difficult for people to be sure how genuine somebody’s profile or online presence is.

As the premise of online dating is often meeting people you have only seen over the internet, many singles are taking steps to ensure their safety by commissioning background checks on potential dates. Private Investigators UK offers this service, to provide protection and gain a better understanding of somebody’s history.

A spokesperson from The Private Detective said:

“Online dating is becoming increasingly popular, and with that comes risks. People can pretend to be whoever they like online and it’s important to obtain whether the person you could potentially let into your private life is completely genuine. A background check allows a better understanding of somebody’s history and full disclosure. Nobody wants to be a victim of crime or find out a dark secret further down the line.”

The Private Detective has a pool of skilled and highly trained private detectives and private investigators in the UK and abroad. This nationwide company includes their long associated business partners Private Detectives Bristol who can supply investigation services in and around the Bristol area.
