I don’t know about you, but I’ve been burned by people who I thought I could trust.
This subject isn’t a comfortable one to bring up, but hindsight is 20/20. When I look back on times in my life where I should have just trusted my gut and did some digging, the idea that I “just need to trust them” or “I don’t want to offend anyone” held me back.
After all, I thought I knew that person well. Shouldn’t I give them the benefit of the doubt?
Now that I’m older and wiser, I know it’s OK to check a person’s background. Learning a bit extra about someone can protect you or simply give you peace of mind. You can even check up on them without setting off any alarm bells. And my tool of choice? This website called TruthFinder.
Pulling a background check is a great way to find out if your love interest is telling the truth about their past, or if your new neighbor is really who they say they are. I’m not saying you have to do this for everyone you meet, but if you want to invest further in a person, it’s not a bad idea to get some peace of mind.
Here are some instances where you should find out more about someone.
Case No. 1: Love interests
Too often, I turn on the news and see unfortunate stories about women who chose the wrong boyfriend.
In particular, I see tragedies occur from trusting live-in boyfriends who turned out to be dangerous felons. These masterminds have a knack for creating the ultimate “nice guy” persona and are tough to discern as dangerous people.
