Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct )
February 3, 2005 -- A best friends well-intentioned advice may not
always be the best when it comes to dating. Licensed California Private
Investigator and DateSmart® founder, Carmen Naimish reminds
dating singles to investigate their dates.
A young, beautiful single mother in Northern California believed she
had found Mr. Right. She had met a charming and handsome man who
appeared to have it all and claimed he wanted to share his life with
her. Unlike many singles, they didn't meet on-line. The two were
introduced by more traditional means…by the woman's best
With the promises of Mr. Right in sight, neither the woman nor her best
friend recognized the red flags prominent in Scott Peterson's behavior.
Peterson lied--and many believed his lies. Scott Peterson's formal
death sentence is scheduled, not for his lies, but for the double
murder of the very family he claimed did not exist.
Most men and women desire to find the right
mate, to be in love, and to live happily ever after. On-line dating
offers a means to achieve these results and, indeed, many have found
success using this method. However, people need to be aware that their
desires can mask a clear perception, cloud judgment, and result in a
less than desirable dating outcome.
"There are red flags that offer clues regarding suspicious behavior,
and these red flags are the same whether you've met on-line or by
traditional means," Naimish says. If Amber Frey had sought further
information on the red flags apparent in her relationship with Scott
Peterson, she would have learned early on that he was married and that
he and his wife owned a home together in Modesto.
A few red flags to consider - if you answer yes to any of these
questions, you should seek more information about your mate:
- Does it seem too good to be true?
- Is there something you can't quite put
your finger on?
- Are they secretive or elusive regarding
- Do they blame others for their problems?
- Have they asked you for money or use of
In a January 27, 2005 Wall Street Journal
article, Sue Shellenbarger writes "Latest Dating Headache - Many women
are surprised to find their earning power has become a magnet for the
opposite sex." In other words, if you're a good catch, you're an even
bigger target for scam artists. Be careful.
The availability of on-line sources of information may appear to make
the investigation process easier but typically does not provide all the
answers. "Internet savvy clients sometimes try these methods then
contact DateSmart® because they've not found the information
they seek. DateSmart® provides personal service, an analysis of
the findings and an explanation of what the information means to you,"
Men are equally vulnerable to these dating issues. Single
professionals, baby boomers and retired persons, all who have worked
hard to own their homes or businesses may not have time to conduct
their own thorough research. Many have contacted DateSmart® for
these services. "Most tell me 'I'm so glad I did,'" says Naimish.
Others say, "I only wish I had known about you sooner."
