Fact: Background checks don't work in the dating space. Dating sites and people will only use identity verification services. There is a lot of research and real-world use cases that prove this time and time again.

Trufina,, Honesty Online and at least a dozen other companies already offer these services to dating sites (with low take rates) and the large lady has sung.

Hi David Evans.
I've been doing some research about launching a dating site. I read your post here July 8, 2010 at 9:30am CDT, but every time I click to look at your site (and I've tried at least 5 times) it only shows for a minute and then mysteriously goes to my Google homepage, where the back button doesn't work, as if you were never there at all. I have never seen anything like it, thought you should know... if you even get this message.
