Google & Social Media

If you don’t find their social media accounts via Google, try entering their name directly into the sites’ search boxes.

REMEMBER:

  • A clean report doesn’t necessarily mean that your date is safe to be around. These databases only contain information about court cases and arrests.
  • Protective orders are dismissed for a variety of reasons, including legal delays and victim intimidation. Do not discount a protective order request just because it was dismissed.
  • Be aware that abusers sometimes file VPOs against their victims.
  • Most unhealthy relationships appear to be healthy at first and slowly move into unhealthy territory over time. Because most people present their “best” selves on social media, red flags may not be visible on these pages.
  • You know your boundaries best. Trust your intuition when you feel that a situation is unsafe.

RED FLAGS TO WATCH OUT FOR:

  • Early intensity: oversharing; possessiveness; pressuring for sex, commitment, and sharing of personal information, etc.
  • Monitoring: frequent check-ins, constantly expecting to know where you are, who you are with, etc., manipulating you into sharing passwords/access to accounts.
  • Isolating: behaviors that cause you to spend less time with friends and family and more time alone with your partner, such as sabotaging or creating tension in relationships.
  • Creating Chaos: false accusations, extreme jealousy, behaving in ways that cause you to feel insecure, alternating between intensity & distance, picking fights with escalating frequency & intensity, etc.
  • Criticism & Negativity: holding others to extremely high standards; criticizing their exes, co-workers, bosses, and eventually you; belittling & blaming others for their behavior.
  • Violence & Threats: abuse of pets, assaults of others, and other threatening behaviors like damaging your property.
