With the help of our partners at TC LogiQ, Inc., a background screening authority with over 40 years of experience, all users will now have the opportunity to become a “Verified Member.” (Click here to view the details of our new update.)

Users will be extensively screened based on criminal records/databases in relation to:

  • » Registered Sex Offenders
  • » Sex Crimes
  • » Violent Crimes
  • » Domestic Violence
  • » Felonious and Misdemeanor Assaults

Members will be searched for the following: Address Trace, Social Security Number Verification, and International Wants and Warrants. Profiles that pass the screening will earn a “Background Verified” badge. This practice is revolutionary for online dating, as the majority of online dating websites (i.e. Match.Com) merely search criminal records.

So what are you waiting for? Become a What’s Your Price “Verified Member” today!

    All personalities and perspectives are welcome in this blog, while personal attacks and name calling are not. It’s inevitable that there will be disagreements, but let’s handle it as mature adults with class to keep the dialog constructive and respectful. Please refer to “Blog Etiquette” on WhatsYourPrice blog for more details.

    I think it’s a good thing. It reduces the fear factor for the women. I don’t know if it helps the men, though. I wonder if people will still be able to lie about their ages? I dated a woman on here whose profile stated she was 25. I found out later she was 27. It didn’t bother me because she was incredibly beautiful and fun to be with.

  3. Plzbelieveme says:

    Not sure why the site doesnt pay for it, instead of the members shelling out 50$, sounds like a bad scam IMO, havent got refunded for the suspended accounts already. Prolly will pass on this.

  4. Monchen says:

    Why would someone say they were 25 when they were really only 27? Sounds more like a typo than a misrepresentation

  5. chris says:

    And age really is just a number. I think it should be removed from profiles because it is personal and to many people get judged just on age alone. It means little to nothing.

  6. Magno says:

    I agree with Chris on this one. If a woman states she is 48, when she is really 56, I usually call her on it, then tell her it makes no difference to me. I don’t date age. I date attraction.

  7. chris says:

    A man 50 and over may not get any attention from younger females unless he claims 35. sometimes you wanna just get your foot in the door and given a chance.

  8. toby says:

    i am over 50 and i have had 4 dates and dozens of offers. i don’t know if the ladies go out with me for the money or they think i’m interesting. anyways i have fun. some backround checks are not that accurate depending on what firm does it. i find checking with the state judicial court is free and is more accurate.

  9. Pat says:

    All people have to do is what the above poster said. Just check the county clerk of courts for the respective county the person lives in.Also most states have a department of corrections and a department of law enforcement. They have searches that can be run for free. If anything shows up well you have issues. I have done that and found a few felons that use this site female wise. A few were incarcerated for drugs. Another was incarcerated for battery.But if this site is going to charge 50 for this service – forget it. I think 50 is too steep, maybe 25 (which is what other legit background sites charge.)

  10. Liz says:

    I have conflicting feelings about this. For one thing, I think the price is outrageous when it can easily be done for free. Now for the actual logistics behind the idea, I do think it will help the women of this site feel safer about going on a date with someone, which is VERY important. However, it is not always the best idea to rely soley on background checks to determine the level of safety of going out with someone. Only an estimated 4% of sexual crimes in the US are reported to authorities, which means we have a lot of rapists walking around who have no criminal record. My fear is that women (generally, though men could be in this position too) will rely too heavily on this new feature. I’ve managed to avoid many unwanted and potentially dangerous situations by examining what kind of language a person uses, what kind of photos, etc. For instance, if a guy suggests that I meet him at his hotel room, that’s NOT going to happen. Or, in messages a guy dances around the fact that he expects me to have sex with him after the date, I won’t be going out with him either. I’m happy to report that after nearly 2 years on WYP and plenty of dates, I’ve never felt I was in an unsafe situation while on a date.

    Also, what’s with the age thing on here? I understand it’s annoying and frustrating when a date lies about his/her age, but is that going to affect your safety??

  11. chris says:

    Millionare match maker show does not beliwve in revealing ages because to many only focus on thst and throw chemistry away due to it. I think it is a stupid feature.

  12. scorpio says:

    I have a better system – use an ebay/feedback type thing where those who are honest and go out on dates get good ratings and other women or men know they are trustworthy. That system is free and based on merit of using the site.

  13. AlanC says:

    Scorpio’s idea is great! This site needs something like this and it should be part of the site not something we have to pay extra for. And $50? Give me a break.

  14. Bill says:

    The interesting thing is that the person pays for their own background check. That is very different than paying to see someone else’s background. It’s a selling tool rather than a buying tool.

  15. Magno says:

    This site is missing the boat on this one. The background check is an opportunity for Brandon Wade to authenticate profiles, and market this site as a proactive, cutting edge, safe dating alternative to the dangers that are wrought with traditional dating.

    This background check should be free to members, or at the least, be provided at cost.

    This option should not be a shameful money grab.

    If 100 percent of the profiles were authenticated, it would weed out the fake profiles, or otherwise undesirables trolling about on here.

  16. Lore says:

    I agree with Magno, it would be nice if a dating site did do background checks, I do agree age is not a safety issue, but I would like to know criminal records, DUI’s etc. I kinda like the idea of not knowing the age of a person, I’m older but look younger, so I bet I would get viewed more if age wasn’t a factor.

  17. betty says:

    I have seen 28 yr old who look 40 and 50 yr olds who look 26! Some men age better than others so i try not to judge on age.

  18. betty says:

    What about making everyone hold up a sign that says wyp and the name used on profile?

  19. Magno says:

    Betty has a good point. Genetics, and a healthy lifestyle play a major part in how both men and women age.
    I am 45, but a lot of people mistake me for being closer to 35. I personally think many of the 50 something ladies in my social circle look better physically than many of those who are in their 40′s. so, I always say I don’t date age, I date attraction, compatibility, and comfort level.

  20. betty says:

    Like liz taylor when she was 12 looked like a 24 year old goddess! Brooke shields at 12 looked 18!

  21. Magno says:

    Um, Brooke Shields at 12 looked about 13.

  22. Exciting take on this issue. My spouse and i for starters have witnessed a lot of twists for this and will usually find the pockets from the debate nonetheless, at this juncture I was thinking the writing is unquestionably that everyone should be in agreement with this. Appreciate revealing this along with us.
