Here are a couple of stats about online dating websites and dating apps that you probably did not know about: 17% of the people on dating apps/websites are there to cheat on their partners. And – more than 50% of users have admitted to lying in their profiles (according to surveys conducted by YouGov and Kaspersky surveys, respectively). So, if you suspect that your partner or someone that you are dating has a dating profile, there is a chance that it is true. It can be very tricky to find out if your suspicions are correct when using traditional search methods. However, we are here to break the mold, and tell you how to find dating profiles with a few handy tools:
Start by checking the search history
The first place that you should start with to find a secret dating profile is the person's browser history; If you have a sneaking suspicion that your partner may be unfaithful, check their browsing history on their PC and mobile devices. Many people who cheat delete their history, but not all of them. Try looking at your partner's search history before you search other places.
Perform an email search
When signing up for dating services, like Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, etc, users are required to provide an email address. So, your partner's email address could be linked to an online dating profile. How can you perform a search like this? With a reverse email lookup service – like GoLookUp. The directory allows you to enter an email address, and get valuable information about its owners – including their dating profiles. If your partner has several email addresses, you can perform a search for each of them. GoLookUp provides unlimited searches, so you can find information on multiple emails in one place.
Is there a particular photo of your partner that he/she particularly like? If so, it is likely that that photo appears on their dating profile. A good way to run a free dating profile search is to use a reverse search website. You can also use photos from your partner's social media accounts, and discover if there are dating profiles that are linked to those photos.
Use a reverse phone number search directory
Now, this is stepping it up a notch; if all else fails, there are two things that you can do: either realize that your partner is not cheating on you, or perform a deeper search. With the ladder, one of the best ways is to perform a reverse phone number search. With GoLookUp, you can enter your partner's phone number, and discover if there are dating profiles that are linked to it. The report provided to you by the website also includes other phone numbers that are linked to your partner. That way, you can discover if your partner has another phone number that he/she may be using it dating sites.
A reverse phone number is also handy when you want to discover who your partner is contacting. If you can get your hands on phone numbers that your partner frequently uses, you can run a search on them as well. Type in the phone number into the reverse phone number directory on GoLookUp, and you will discover who is behind those numbers.
Create your own dating profile
You can open a dating profile (just don't use your real photos) to perform a dating profile search. Once you have your own profile, be patient and see if your partner pops up on the app. To increase your chances of finding the truth, open a detailed profile: choose your partner's preferences, upload a photo of the type that he/she likes, narrow down the search distance, etc. Then, the dating service's algorithm will match you with similar profiles, and your partner can be one of those profiles.
Performing a dating profile search should only happen if you have a good reason to do so. If your partner is showing signs of cheating, it could be so, and he/she may be doing it via dating apps/websites. To get to the bottom of the truth, you may need to invade your partner's privacy, and that is never easy.
Another way to find out if your partner is unfaithful is to ask them point-blank. They could deny it, and they could admit it. Either way, the methods that we mentioned should be a last resort. If you suspect that your partner is cheating on you, it could be because you have some trust issues. You should resolve these issues with an open conversation, and talk to your partner about your suspicions. Acting on speculation alone could cause deeper issues, and you should be prepared to deal with the consequences of your actions, as well as your partners.
