Discover dates dating site
His full name was listed there and, after Googling that, I saw a press release on the New York Attorney General's website about how he was facing weapons possession charges after unregistered shotguns and assault rifles were discovered in his house, and faces up to seven years in prison. He was forthcoming with a lot of information — the name of his company, where he'd lived in the past, interests, and his full name.

Also, Aziz Ansari says in his book, Modern Romance , if you start digging into somebody's background, you run the risk of rejecting someone for innocuous factoids you find, i.e., because they enjoy a radio show you happen to find dumb. It is hard enough to find decent romance without rejecting people based on arbitrary criteria, i.e., height, eye color, favorite movie, that actually say nothing about the person's real qualities.”I agree.
When I arrived for our first date, I was made to wait 90 minutes while she got ready. I read a bunch on it and, in my not-so-expert-opinion, he was guilty but must have given them a bigger fish to fry. My boss set me up and knew about it (they had worked together) and told me to give him a chance and not to be picky. I own a digital marketing firm and have been approached by individuals who were concerned about what they found when they Googled their names.
