6. A friend might help
If you don’t have a dating profile yourself, I’m sure that at least one of your friends has one. What you can do is ask them to keep an eye on when using their dating apps/sites – Of course, if you trust this friend enough to do this.
You can tell them that it is about your partner. If they’re a good friend that you can trust, they’ll be a good friend to tell you when they spot your partner while using their dating media.
As much as I hate to say it, it has been effective a lot of times – Here’s how people have been doing this:
- Once your partner is not around in the room but has their device/es in the room that you’re in. Check their phone, or computer if you know their passwords (if not, you’re not gonna be able to do anything).
- Next, look for apps such as Tinder, Hinge, Grindr(if you’re gay), OkCupid, eHarmony, etc. If you don’t see these apps it’s a pretty good sign they’re not using them. However, your work is not done yet. You can search for their profile on Hinge too.
- Check their browsing history. Look for those sites, you’ll know clearly when a site they’ve been on is a dating site since it’ll most probably say in the link. (e.g. match, tinder, pof, etc.)
Note: If your partner is using their dating profile in incognito mode (which is a mode on the browser that doesn’t save any history or traces of whatever you watch/search/do – partially on the internet), you’re not going to find anything.
This is at your own risk. If you feel like this is the only way to have peace of mind in this part, then you might want to rethink the basics of your relationship.
Reasons why I don’t recommend this:-This can result in unhealthy patterns being practiced in the relationship.- You’re breaking their trust.– You’re not respecting their privacy.– You’ll be looking to find something, and you might even find something even if it isn’t there for that particular reason. You searched for it, you found it.– You’re choosing a sneaky way to solve the problem. Instead of talking to your partner about it.
*Keep in mind
If they’re trying to hide it from you, there are a lot of chances they’re not going to use their real names, emails, or even phone numbers (they could be using fake phone numbers, e.g. fake phone numbers for hinge, tinder, etc).
How to find out if someone has Facebook Dating?
You can add people on the ‘secret crush’. Once you add a person, they’ll be notified that someone has a crush on them, but they won’t be notified who has a crush on them.
If you both add each other, then you’ll match, and you’ll both know that you’ve been on each other’s ‘secret crush’ list.
Checking that person’s phone (which you already know I don’t recommend at all) could help you on this as well.
You want to look at whether they’re on Facebook Dating by checking their Facebook menu and see if they’re active on Facebook Dating.
3 things that help you tell someone is on dating sites/apps
This behavior usually means they’re hiding something, or they’re being secretive about something on their phone, it’s not necessarily a dating profile, but it means there’s something they’re not willing to share with you.
They seem to be so into their phones, that they take them everywhere they go and use them a lot. Now, it’d be a different story if they’d share with you what it is that they’re doing on their phone, but in this case, they don’t. On the contrary, they hide like their life depends on it.
