Subject: Dating Behavior

In most social settings on and off- line many people think with emotionally and not critically. They want to believe what they hear and often have great conversations. When a person finds someone they are interested in they want to believe they have found an honest and caring heart. We enjoy the idea of the chance meeting. But dating sites are different from your co-workers Halloween or birthday party. Dating sites allow for the parties to create an immediate on-line personality from a distance. Which may give those involved a false sense trust on who the on-line party really is. The same is also true in any face to face social setting, but at least there are some non-verbal cues; such as, body language and physical expressions which help to support and reinforce a person’s verbal statements.

In spring 2014 Black Hawk Investigations, LLC Chantilly, VA will offer free printable page of free public websites/sources that may assist you in avoid or identify false statements in what your casual or intimate partner tells you. In fact, maybe you should check out a few things before bringing them home. Other topics like signs of Drug and Alcohol Addiction, finding marriage or divorce. Does he own a home? Does he have a job? Is there a criminal record? Things that you may want to know about their truthfulness and honestly.
