I have officially reached that age and time of year when many of my friends are getting married and a couple are in the midst of a divorce…
Through the years we have all had something in common… We hoped to find “the one.” I had some bad experiences with guys and always had a tendency to be very cautious, but I was always there for my girls (and some of my guy-friends) through the highs and lows. So many heart-to-hearts about the “perfect guy” and trying to de-code what that last txt message or interaction could have possibly meant.
I have friends who have ended up with their high-school sweetheart. And other friends who met their guys when they weren’t even looking and found themselves in the midst of an amazing romance. Some of them met on the dance-floor or in school or out on the town, but many of my friends are meeting people online. I guess that is becoming the way of the world.
I have always been so leery of the whole online scene. I tried it once when one of my friends insisted on creating me a “plenty of fish” account back in 2012 and I only lasted for 2 days and then I was out. I guess the paranoid person in me comes out. I know how easy it is to exaggerate and enhance things online with what feels like little consequence. And it is just SO damn convenient. But how do you know if they really are who they say they are? And how do you filter through the fluff and the BS? And once a relationship begins to take root, how do you know if they really have stopped talking to other people for real? I guess that’s the beauty of trust, but in the back of my mind I would always have to wonder, “Are they Faithful?”
I feel so blessed that I have met the love of my life and we have grown in love and trust. I have been working hard on tuning into my intuition and becoming a better judge of character. I have actually discovered in the past year that I am a really good judge of character. Not only on the romantic front but also in business relationships and friendships. There have been many recent instances where someones business associate or love interest raised hairs on my back or gave me a strong feeling that something just wasn’t right. I don’t mean to brag, but a majority of the time, I was spot on about the person’s character and motives.
Some of my friends believed me and some didn’t, but I started to search for a more convincing solution to help them find out “Are they Faithful?”
Then I noticed a pattern, that a majority of my friends were using a dating app called “Tinder.” I started to wonder if there was some way that my friends could find out if their bf or girlfriend or even (in some cases) husband and wife were actively using tinder.
That’s when I found: ALBION Services
Albion is a website that uses actual face recognition to find out if someone is actively using Tinder. The website itself has a beautiful color-scheme which caught my attention and after poking around I found out that you can upload a picture of your person and then it uses face-recognition technology to locate the person and then you will receive a report in an email. It seemed crazy and almost too good to be true. Like something you would see in a movie. I also really liked the fact that you don’t need to create a log-in which can be a hassle because you need to remember a password. Instead you sign up, uload a pic, then receive a report that tells you “Are they Faithful?”
Ever since I discovered this website, I have had a few friends who have tried it out and for better or worse it actually works!!! Does that blow your mind or what?!?!
What are your thoughts on Albion? Would you utilize a website like this or does it seem weird and stalkerish? Do you think it is worth looking into? Or do you believe in trust and faithfulness? Please comment below to share your thoughts! I would love to hear them!
Because I know that our ultimate goal is to not end up like this:
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
