Welcome to Know Your Date.net
Let KnowYourDate.net help alleviate some of the risk in dating by providing the information you need before you make any major commitments. Research shows that most people are not completely honest on their employment applications, much less with someone they just met. We offer a variety of background checks to answer the questions you don’t want to ask them. Our database is constantly being updated so we can provide you with the most up-to-date information available. Don’t be caught off guard dating, or even living with someone who may have criminal records your unaware of. Remember, you are allowing this person into the most private part of your life! Although our name is Know Your Date
you may have other uses for our service, such as checking out a neighbor that seems a little strange, or maybe you have a relative or friend dating someone you would like to make sure is safe to date. Remember records of minors under 18 years old are sealed.
Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, and Rape
No one should suffer the humiliation of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or rape. Wayne Community College N.C. will not tolerate these crimes and will do everything within its power to assist victims of these crimes. 1 in 5 women
are survivors of rape. 1 in 10
of all sexual assault victims in the U.S. are male. 1 in 3 women
and 1 in 4 men
experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes. 1 in 3 teens
experience sexual or physical abuse or threats from a boyfriend or girlfriend each year. 1 in 5 undergraduate women
experience an attempted or successful attempted sexual assault while in college. 1 in 16 men
are targets of attempted or completed sexual assault while they are college students. 9 in 10 women
knew the person who raped or assaulted them. Women between 18-24
years of age are at the greatest risk for intimate partner violence. Nearly 9 in 10 assaults
occur when the survivor is incapacitated due to alcohol. Many college rapists target victims who are drugged, drunk, passed out, or otherwise incapacitated. Only 2% of incapacitated rape victims
report the assault to law enforcement.
How often does sexual assault occur?
In 2006, there were 272,350 victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault. (These figures do not include victims 12 years old or younger.)
Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.
Here’s the math. According to the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey, the country’s largest and most reliable crime study, there were 272,350 sexual assaults in 2006 (the most recent data available). There are 525,600 minutes in a non-leap year, that makes 31,536,000 seconds/year. So, 31,536,00 divided by 272,350 comes out to 1 sexual assault every 116 seconds, or about 1 every 2 minutes.
Sexual Assault vs. Rape
Notice, that we said sexual assault, not rape. Sexual assault is a broader category that the Justice Department uses to classify rape, attempted rape, and other violent felonies that fall short of rape. Rape is defined as forced vaginal, oral, or anal penetration. Click this link for 32 Disheartening Sexual Assault Statistics for 2020
