Nowadays, there’s no more calling on the phone and asking for a date. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll receive a text message.
Online dating has become the second most common way for couples to meet. Over an estimated 120,000 marriages start online per year. So why is this concerning?
In some respects, it’s great. You have plenty of people to choose from: all shapes, sizes and with diversified interests. On the other hand, meeting people online can potentially open you up to nightmarish situations. These people are strangers and lots of bad things can happen. So how do you minimize the risk?
It’s incredibly important to know whom you are going to meet before you have that first face-to-face meeting. The easiest way is to have a professional private investigator run a background search. They are reasonably priced but well worth the investment. A background search usually covers the last 20 years of a person’s life. It can tell you about the person’s family, job, civil ligations, liens, judgments, criminal record and a lot more.
Additionally, an investigator will search for a person’s cyber footprint and discover whether or not your potential date has a history of embellishing or fabricating the truth. Stalkers may not have a criminal record but are very dangerous. Everyone has baggage. Some have a fanny pack and others a steamer trunk. Aren’t you worth the expense? Our investigators have many years of experience in finding out the truth about people. We can provide you with a complete profile about a potential partner to aide you in what may very well be the most important decision of your life.
So you are in a relationship and for whatever reason you decide you are no longer interested. After breaking it off, it should just be over right? Not always!
Sometimes you find yourself in a situation of uneasiness, scared for you life, harassed and basically just feeling like prey.
Chances are you are being stalked. Here are a few signs of stalking behavior:
- Someone calling, emailing or texting incessantly.
- Showing up at your office,home or when you are out in public, unexpectedly.
- Someone that loves you “too much”.
- Someone that monitors your phone records or computer history.
- Has anger issues, whether verbal or physical.
- He/she won’t take no for an answer
- Makes threats to hurt him/herself.
- Makes threats to hurt you.
If any of this sounds familiar, TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS. Make sure that you report it and take the necessary actions to keep yourself safe.
There is no reasoning with a stalker so the only thing you should say is “NO”, once, and walk away. Never engage your stalker and never give him/her a reason to be encouraged.
There are several different types of stalkers. Below are some of the more common types:
- Rejected Stalkers – these are people who have been in some type of relationship with you. Whether it’s as a friend or a romantic partner, they are not willing to let go even though you have expressed your desire to end it. They are seeking revenge or to make your life difficult because since they can’t have you, they don’t want anyone else too either.
- Predators – these are people who will stalk you as prey. Usually they are looking for some type of sexual encounter. They are looking for total power over their victim.
- Resentful Stalkers – these are people who are angry and feel the need to get back at you. They are revenge seekers. They feel that you have wronged them in some way and are trying to punish their victim.
- Love obsessed stalkers – these are people that fixate on their victims but have had no intimate relationship with them. They believe that they are already in a relationship with the victim and need not to be encouraged in any way. Any positive or negative attention will be perceived as encouragement.
