The internet is a great place to find someone you know. Thinking about a person or wondering how they’re doing, or if they’re happy is what many people think about when they miss their friend or ex. Not knowing can lead to constant thinking and dreaming about that special someone. If you or someone you know is searching for someone there are a few places that should help find the one you are searching for.
Visit their Last Place of Residence
When you’ve known someone for years the best place to find them is at their last place of residence. It may be rude to show up at someone’s home not knowing if they still live there, but you may get the answers you are looking for. If this is impossible then try showing up at their parent’s home. Your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend may have introduced you to his or her parents once before so try stopping by to see if they’ll tell you updated information. I’m not saying stalk the person you are looking for, but the person you are searching for may be thinking about you as well. It’s not like you are trying to stalk your friend, but visiting your friend may be a good idea. Be prepared for unexpected things to happen if you visit your friend or their parent’s home. If you can’t remember where they live, the next best place to find someone is the internet.
Search Social Network Sites
Sometimes men and women who are in relationships want to know how their ex is doing. Facebook has been the most successful place to find someone you know. Other social networks include MySpace, Twitter, and Classmates.com. I’ve known some people who have found middle school classmates on Facebook. These social networks allow you to connect with family, friends, and coworkers. You can even find updated information about a person on social networks.
Search on People Search Sites
People search sites can have as much information as location, employment, financial, and background history; or as little information as a name, age, and previous locations. It will depend on the information the people search has available. The average cost for a people search is $39.99 and is useful in finding someone if there’s a lot of information available. Performing a people search is also good when trying to find detailed information about someone you are dating. Google is a good resource and free, but it’s difficult to locate someone if they have a common name.
These tips will locate the person you are looking for, but if you have limited information about a person the search can be near impossible. When searching keep in mind that some people change their first or last name. Some people may not use social networking sites. It is best to remember where your friend or ex used to live and what they liked to do.
