How to Find Out if Your Date is a Sex Offender
When it comes to dating, you don’t always know exactly who you’re meeting. To empower yourself with knowledge, KRESS advises that you run a simple search through the sex offender registry for your state. By running this check, you’re taking a simple step to protect yourself. Even some dating apps are looking at how to protect their users from sex offenders.
How to Check Their Record
Do a little sleuthing, and once you have your date’s name and birthday, you can run a basic check in the sex offender registry. If you run the search and get a hit, you will find photos, a full name, and their age. If the results match your Valentine, it’s time to put a stop to Cupid’s arrow before it strikes.
Take the time to research your potential partner. This information empowers you to make a fully informed decision on whether to move forward. You can find additional resources and databases on our blog, here.
