Not that you’re not attracted to them or anything, just that you’re not certain about some aspects of their past. If you could, you would do a background check on them, and that’d be it, right?

Well, you’re in luck. Here in this guide, I’ll provide a step-by-step guide to snooping on someone, stealthily.
