People, please. This is getting a little out of hand. A company called Intelius has gotten a little too clever for their own good and developed an app that lets women go super stalkery on their male dates. The app is called Date Check, which checks for criminal record, net worth, living status (married or single) and various personal details that are pulled from social media sites. The app, when it’s released later this fall, will be free to download but will cost you money to run the checks.
UPDATE: Not sure what’s up with Intelius, but their Youtube videos got pulled this morning. This includes the video on their own site.
You know what I think? I think this is friggin retarded. Yup, I’ve sat around and Googled chicks that I’ve picked up and I’ve done a wee bit of Facebook stalking too. But who the hell GOES ON THE ACTUAL DATE and uses their iPhone to pull this information? Ladies, are you waiting for the guy to head to the john before you run Sleaze Detector? Let’s get serious for three seconds here.
Do like everyone else does, run your searches at work. I mean, it’s not like you’re not blowing time shopping on Bluefly and IM’ing with your girlfriends anyway. Get criminal background checks for twenty bucks here and run a pretty nasty little people search at Pipl.com. Or just google the poor sap.
BTW, if you’re a chick and you’re doing net worth checks on your dates you’re kind of a loser. Guys don’t do this. We think it’s creepy. I’m just saying.
