New dating site screens all members for criminal history, relationship statuses

first online dating portal to perform thorough background investigations on every member, in order to ensure that your blind date doesn’t blindside you with any felony convictions, second families or other falsehoods. As the “Newest and Safest Way to Date,” Play It Safe Dating not only screens its members for criminal records, it also claims to verify its members’ ages, photos and relationship statuses in order to prevent people from presenting themselves dishonestly. Its goal is to make daters’ safety a higher priority, as sex offenders and scammers are common on traditional dating sites. Of course, background screening all your potential dates does come with a cost. In addition to monthly membership fees, new members must pay $44.99 to sign up. “After speaking to hundreds of online daters, there was a clear direction of common complaints. Men complained that women were older and heavier in person than their photos portrayed, and women have found that a lot of the men they meet online are married,” said Play It Safe Dating Founder and CEO Cheryl Rios. A background check based on name, birth date and state of residence may turn up a person’s marital status, though it is not clear how the site will confirm its members’ weight or photo accuracy. The website is still in beta mode, and did not provide further information about how background checks would be conducted.]]>
