Culver City, CA – February 13, 2008 – Today ( launched “DateMate,” a new search suite providing online daters and social networkers the added peace of mind and security that only comes from accurate background information. DateMate provides online daters important information about their prospective date’s history, including marriage and divorce records, criminal records, civil litigation, bankruptcies, and major asset ownership. The DateMate suite combines three search types – criminal background, public records, and assets – into one comprehensive report.

Online dating is increasingly popular but the risk associated with moving online relationships to in-person meetings should not be ignored. Online dating and social networking allow people to meet each other with a degree of anonymity which can be useful as people get to know one another. However, this anonymity also creates an information gap. Sites that introduce potential partners in a virtual world cannot provide the level of assurance once provided by traditional sources such as friends and family. How does one judge another’s suitability without this corroboration?

“More and more, we are finding that people dating online want to confirm that the person they are getting to know online is really who they say they are. Do they have a criminal record? Have they been married or divorced? Are they financially stable?,” says Group President Rod Stoddard. “It is a matter of being careful, of confirming your trust. If you knew that the person you were communicating with online had an unsettling background, would you still want to meet that person?”
