So what’s involved in a ‘Boyfriend Background Check’?

Some people think that it’s paranoid, but I think it’s crazy that some people do less research on the history of a person we let into our homes (and vaginas) than the condition of a used purse on Ebay.

A boyfriend background check definitely would have saved me a ton of time in my 20s.
