Background check.Wouldn’t it be nice if DATEFAX existed on your daughter’s potential dates? Well, you might consider creating your own. It is important to check out the boy our baby girl is going to hang with, consulting their own, self-published advertising campaigns…especially online (MySpace™, Facebook™, Google™). This is no joke. Let me tell you a true story of an exciting young man who waltzed into our little world and nearly wreaked some serious havoc in the lives of some treasured young women. Fortunately, a little background check revealed his shocking and dangerous history. I’ll call him “Rich.” Rich was introduced to my daughter at a birthday party. Average looks, slightly older, polite and seemingly quite nice. He reappeared online a year later from another state where he had relocated and was casually pursuing my daughter. So I started to ask around. And here’s where it gets interesting. Nobody would have said anything about this guy until I asked. That is when I heard through a client, a friend, another mom, and even the police (yes, the cops!) that he was more than just trouble. The information was there the whole time, just for the asking. Here is the good news and the bad news: The entire crisis developed in less than 5 days. It was over in a matter of minutes because I did the research. Do your homework and follow your gut. It’s worth it.
