Finding a new boyfriend can be a great experience, especially if you are among those who have been wishing to get that one person who will love you truly. However, you need to reason both with your heart and mind, even as you get into this relationship. You must have heard the fallacy that love is blind. Don’t be duped into blindly believing every new guy that comes your way with a pick up line. No matter how romantic your new crush is, you must exercise caution and take measures meant not only to protect your heart but also protect those dear to you. One of the surest ways of exercising caution is to check your boyfriends background and run a background check on every person you date, just to make sure.

Beware of online scammers

The advancements in technology have revolutionized the way in which people meet. Today, you can meet a new boyfriend online via online dating platforms. In as much as this is a great way to meet, make sure that the person you meet on this platform is who he says he is. Don’t be naive; people are not always who they say they are. So, before being emotionally bruised, run a background check on your new boyfriend before falling head over heels for him. Such a move will protect you from being catfished by an online scammer.

Don’t fall in love too fast

Did you know that there are people online who can qualify for the title of professional charmers? If you didn’t then get it from me. Be very careful not to fall in love with someone you have not met face to face. Don’t let a cute profile photo fool you that he is all that and more. Hold on to your feelings until such a time that you ascertain that their online profiles are a true representation of who they really are. Today, some men who can best be called scavengers have gained notoriety for creating fake online profiles and using these fake profiles to lure unsuspecting damsels into their love trap. Before you know it, you will have been catfished and added to the long list of ladies who these scavengers have managed to dupe into fake relationships.

How to Conduct Background Checks

You can use the Internet to conduct a background check on your boyfriend. All you need is his first, middle and last name, his birthday and the state where he currently lives or has lived in the past. You can use different name combinations to search for information on your boyfriend in public records that are available online. You can also use this website to get the information you need on your new boyfriend.

Why do a boyfriend background check?

As stated earlier, not everybody is always forthcoming with information. Sometimes, people withhold information or give half-truths or lie to protect themselves. As a lady about to get into a relationship, it is important for you to know the type of person you are about to give your heart to. Falling in love is a great experience and true love is meant to last. We believe that true love casts out all fear meaning that if you are truly in love with someone, you need not have suspicions lingering in your mind wondering who your partner is or was. Whether you are suspicious of your boyfriend or you just want to clear some doubt, there is no better way than to check your boyfriend’s background.

There is so much that you can find out about a person by doing a simple Google search. You can check if your boyfriend has a criminal record if he has ever been convicted and the nature of the crime that he was charged with. You can even find out who he’s texting. You can access public records from the State’s official government website or the National State’s Court system. You can also check to see if your boyfriend is or was married and if he has kids. You wouldn’t want to be a home wrecker, would you?

Background checks and insecurity?

Conducting a background check on your boyfriend does not mean that you don’t trust them. It also does not mean that you are insecure. It just means that you care about your safety and security enough to take precautions. An insecure person is one who thinks that her current lover is seeing someone else. Well, there are some checks you can conduct to check if this is true or not. However, the kind of background checks we are talking of here goes past infidelity and cheating partners. In an actual sense what you are trying to check is your boyfriend’s past, his history. The revelations made from such checks can help you decide whether this is a person you would like to spend the rest of your life with or not.
