I have to start asking around about the men that I mean. I feel as if I am reverting back to my naive days when I just assume people are sane, normal, and gainfully employed. They are most definitely not always any of of these, so why not vet a person a little bit. One of the perks of blind dates is having a little intel on someone who you decide to date.
When you don’t have friend referrals or you don’t know anyone family members, is it smart to do a little screening? Would you actually invest in an internet search or go so far as to hire an investigator?
I know a woman who said she wished she vetted her man before she started dating him. It turns out he had a criminal record and a history of financial fraud. Will vetting your date even net results that are useful? Have you ever done it?
