Perform Background Checks Before Dating Someone or Becoming Someones Friend

Do you really know who your friends are? How sure are you about that significant other? Are you sure you know the people you confide your most deepest and darkest secrets to? Are you sure that you can trust that person? If you had to hesitate, even the slightest, then maybe...just maybe, you need to make sure that the person you are really dealing with is that person that YOU THOUGHT you knew.

Employers implement background checks as a means to determine if the person has had issues with dishonesty, thefts, felonies, or any other moral issues. Background checks are how they find out. Therefore, why not do a background check on prospective boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, or even co-workers!

BE CAUTIOUS 
Always know where you are going, when you are coming back, and how far is the nearest police station.  Always know whether the person you are associating with have an illegal background. 

If you are dating someone new, be very cautious of your surroundings.  We are in the age when all we have to do is GOOGLE someone or go on FACEBOOK and information pops up.  This isn't CYBER-STALKING.  This is getting the basic information needed to survive.  You wouldn't want your new boyfriend, who was a previous child molester, around your 5 year old son would you?  You wouldn't want to leave your wallet around someone who was arrested 5 times for theft would you?

KNOWLEDGE
"You know more than you think you know,
just as you know as less than you want to know."

When executed properly, a background check can tell you tons about a potential friend or relationship including his or her real age, whether he or she is married, or even if your date has a criminal past.  If a person is going to be a part of your future, they will bring the past with them.  What you do with the information is up to you?  But, it is important to know who you are allowing into your life.

DO YOU THINK PERFORMING BACKGROUND CHECKS ON YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, OR SIGNIFICANT OTHER IS A GOOD IDEA? 

WHAT ABOUT PROSPECTIVE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING BEING A PART OF YOUR INNER CIRCLE?
