This Website Will Tell You if You’re Crushing on a Sex Offender

Online dating is scary enough when your biggest concern is figuring out how long ago that person’s profile picture was taken, much less when you’re trying to figure out whether he or she is a registered sex offender. (Or whether they’re going to steal your TV and¬†your dog on the first date. Rude.) Because exercising extra safety measures when it comes to your love life is never a bad thing, there now exists¬†CreepShield, a website that lets you upload a potential date’s photo and then compares it against an online database of nearly half a million sex offenders. Nothing turn up? Congratulations! You are probably not crushing on a sex offender. The bad news: There is still a very high probability this person’s profile picture was taken 10 years ago.
