Before Going Out On A Date With Them

Google Stalking 101



1) Use Facebook to find out about the person you are about to date!

Facebook is a great place to start gathering information about a potential blind date!  Facebook can show you where your potential date/future date went to school, give you pictures of the person, and also, will allow you to potentially see what your future date may post online.  The best part of Facebook is that you can use it to see and assess whether your date has any mutual friends.  You may be able to get insight and information from the mutual friends.

2) Google the person you are about to see – Don’t forget image search!!!

There are many ways to Google stalk your potential date.  Whatever you do, don’t mention these activities to your potential date.  The fact that you are googlestalking him or her may creep your date out.  However, if you are going to engage in googlestalking, here are some tips:

  • Search name and screen names (including nicknames)
  • Use Image Search and follow trails you may find on sites and pages containing images
  • Use phone numbers and email addresses as search terms as well!

3) Use Instagram to get information about the person you are about to go on a date with!

Instagram is a great way to see how your potential date interacts with others and what things he or she may be interested in!  Instagram can bring information you find out while doing research on a potential blind date to life!  Whether you met the person you are about to go meet on a dating site, or someone fixed you up on a blind date, Instagram pages can help you to see the types of people your potential date tends to spend time with.  Memes posted to Instagram or Facebook can also give you insight into the sense of humor, politics, and/or interests of your potential date!
