So you might have noticed that your partner is spending a lot of time in front of the computer chatting someone or is constantly texting on their phone. They started to go out more and come home after work later than the usual. Suspicious, isn’t it? It is possible that your loved one has created an online dating profile and have been using it. However, you can’t accuse your partner of anything just yet since you don’t have any proof. These signs call for an investigation and an online dating user has volunteered to share some advice on how to find out if someone is on dating sites for free.
“I have met my boyfriend on one of the online dating platforms and we were “together” for two years. I was in love and thought everything was going great. Little did I know this was all a lie…One day my world had crashed. My best friend called my cell phone and told me she just saw my boyfriend on the same online dating site that I met him. I didn’t believe her at first and thought she was just messing with me. After she showed me his profile, it finally hit me, “My boyfriend is on a dating site…” Turns out he never ended up deleting his profile even when we became exclusive. I immediately broke up with him afterward. From now on I am very careful with whom I date. I hope this will not happen to you but it is better to be safe than sorry. Just in case, I decided to tell you how to find out if your boyfriend is on dating sites:”
How to find out if someone is on a dating site

1. Create an online dating profile
“I did not have to do that in my case as I didn’t suspect anything and my friend had come across his profile by pure chance. Nevertheless, not everyone is going to be as lucky as me. If you feel like something is different in your partner’s behavior, you might want to create a fake online dating profile and see if you can spot them on there.”
Change your information
“Don’t use your own photo, age, appearance features, or any other information that might lead him to that it is you. Many online dating sites allow the users to know who viewed their profile. You don’t want them to find out that you have been checking up on him. Be creative and change your information as much as possible. Don’t forget to also change your profession, education, personality traits, goals and other.”
Create a profile on multiple online dating sites
“To increase your chances of spotting their profile, register on multiple dating sites. Since you don’t know which dating site they might have chosen, it is better to register on as many sites as possible. There are a lot of dating sites available these days. To save your time here are the most popular dating sites:
Start with registration at this dating site and if you do not find anything. Go ahead and Google “online dating site” and you will see them all. ”
2. Check the browsing history
“Another way on how to find out if someone is registered on a dating site is to check the browsing history. If you and your partner share a computer or any other device, you can check the browsing history and see what comes up. While a lot of people tend to delete their browsing history when they are hiding something, there is a chance they could have forgotten to do so. It is not a very reliable method, as your partner most likely would delete the history after being on the online dating site. However, if they did not erase it, you will have all the proof you need right there. Don’t try to access the device that does not belong to you as this is an illegal activity.
3. Check the Email
“Only do so if you and your partner have a shared email account. Logging in without their permission is illegal as well. You can check the email inbox to see if there are emails coming from the dating sites. Such emails will only appear in the inbox if a user has an account on the dating platform and used the email during the registration process. Don’t forget to also check the “Junk”, “Spam”, “Trash” folders. Not all of the emails from online dating sites go straight to the Inbox. To be safe, click “All Mail” and search from there. That way, you won’t miss anything. If your loved one lets you use their phone, you can also check if there are any online dating applications installed or any other suspicious activity being present. If they are suddenly not okay with you using their phone, this is also a reason to worry”.
4. Search for their information online
“If you search for their phone number, full name, email address, or photos on Google, it is likely that their online dating profile will show up in the results. You can drag their photos into google images search bar one by one and see if anything comes up. Pick photos that are most likely to be used, such as your partner’s social media profile picture or portraits.”
5. Hire a private investigator
“When all else has failed you are still convinced that there is something going on in your partner’s life, you can hire a private investigator to look into this matter. Be prepared to pay a sum of money. The process is definitely not cheap. Private investigators can do scans of emails and browsing history. They also have more access to resources and databases than you and can certainly be useful. If you do not have a lot of free time or your own investigation doesn’t work, hiring a private investigator would be a good idea. Remember that while private investigators are able to find out additional information online, they will not hack into computers or phones for you, as this is illegal.”
I hope my advice on how to find out if someone is on a dating site for free was clear and understandable for you guys. I wish you the best on your online dating journey and I hope what happened to me will not happen to any of you”.
