Johnson and Williams believe the importance of their unique cheating search engine exceeds a romantic-only focus. “It’s about helping our members make more informed decisions about their sexual health,” shares Dr. Williams.

Using the internet to flirt, research potential partners, date online and check up on old flames have all become much more common in recent years, according to a 2013 study by Pew Research Center’s Internet Project.
In the Pew study, some of the findings include:
11% of American adults—and 38% of those who are currently “single and looking” for a partner—have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps
24% of internet users have searched for information online about someone they dated in the past, up from 11% in 2005
24% of internet users have flirted with someone online, up from 15% in 2005
Other recent studies have found that Facebook and Twitter usage have impacted the rise in divorces. Specifically, a team of researchers published a study, “Computers in Human Behavior,” which finds a robust correlation between using social network sites, experiencing a troubled relationship, and thinking about divorce.
As the comfort levels for using the internet to research and establish romantic connections continue, unfortunately so does the rise in “online cheating” and “online affairs,” which can often result in sexting, swapping pics, flirty emails and much more.
Just as the proliferation of online dating has given rise to popular sites such as Match.com, eHarmony.com, Zoosk.com and the like, online affairs have given rise to sites like AshleyMadison.com (an online community openly targeting individuals in committed relationships and marriages seeking to cheat and start affairs) as well as to online research services such as Spokeo.com which, according to their paid Google advertising, claim to help you “Catch Your Cheater Spouse.”
Enter AreYouCheating.com (AYC), a highly-specialized “cheating search engine” launched by co-founders and techpreneurs Justice Johnson and Dr. Michelle Williams, DC of Adelphi, Maryland. Johnson and Williams sought to use the internet to better enable individuals in relationships to take their online love interest research to the next level.
“We wanted to create a highly customized ‘cheating search engine’ that would do more than simply provide our users with a search result list of public or readily-available information,” says Johnson. “Instead, our engine allows our members to directly connect with an individual who shares a common interest with the person being searched.” Johnson claims this unique feature of AYC is what sets it apart from other like services. “We specifically help put our members in direct touch with the other party involved.”
So how does the AYC search engine work? “Members can enter up to four unique identifiers into our custom search engine,” explains Johnson. “If other members have searched for any of the same unique identifiers, then a match is made. And if no other members have yet searched for any of the criteria entered, then an email alert is sent when a future search for that same criteria is made. This allows a member to be notified of any potential search criteria matches long after the initial search is made.”
Beyond wanting to help AYC members become better informed about their prospective relationships, the AYC-founding duo Johnson and Williams believe the importance of their unique cheating search engine exceeds a romantic-only focus. “It’s about helping our members make more informed decisions about their sexual health,” shares Dr. Williams.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), having multiple sex partners increases the spread of sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes and HIV. “Our cheating search engine helps members identify whether their partners may be involved with other love interests outside their relationship,” explains Dr. Williams. “This, in turn, can help a member take preventative steps to protect themselves from sexual disease.”
