If I had to enter the dating world again, I might do a little snooping. Maybe not through a phone or email, but I remember they used to have this "When it doubt, check him out" thing where you could find if they had a criminal record. Things have changed so much since I was dating, and since I met my husband. There were no smart phones, no texting... it'd be hard for me to date again. I am not going to say I'd be perfect and never think about investigating. But then I also say I'd stay single forever. Dating is hard.
