American People Search Reveals Death of Blind Dating

New York, NY, February 10, 2010 --( More and more single American looking for love are turning to online people search to research information on future dates and ensure their own safety before meeting potential partners.

The people search source has revealed that nearly double the amount of searches coming from residents in American have been related to individuals trying to piece together information on prospective dates.

Results from a global survey show that the majority of females in American who use the free service say that they do so to ensure their own safety and security before going on a date with the second most popular reason being to find out their dates likes and dislikes.

The research also shows that males are using the site but for slightly differing reasons.

The top male reason is so that they can find out more information about the things their date likes in order to try and increase their chances of the date going well and the second most popular reason is so that they can search for their own name across the Web to ensure potential dates don’t find anything negative about them across the internet.

Global online dating expert William Noah, founder of the popular free date screening website, can see why people in American are researching their partners online.

Speaking about the results William Noah said, “Making sure you take every precaution to protect your own safety and security is essential and I am not surprised to see an increase in people using web based tools to do this. Researching your potential partner is also a great way to avoid those awkward silences as you can find out what they like, don’t like and their hobbies.”

She continued, “I would suggest that checking out a new date online is something every dater should do before a date so they can make better, safer and more informed dating decisions”.

Andy Barr, the CCO for said, “It is clear that more and more individuals are using people search websites to try and not only check their own image but to also make sure that they remain safe and secure when meeting people for the first time.

“For us, it’s really great to see that so many web savvy American are using, not only to keep themselves safe but to increase their chances of that all important second date!”
