So when it comes to dating, mating, and relating, what makes a man really worthy of your mind, body, and heart?

Now what about babysitter-worthy? Single or divorced mothers today faced with the high cost of babysitting services are now doing some real soul-searching before committing to a date with a new man and forking out the big bucks for a babysitter. So what about Google-worthy? You know, typing in your own name and coming up on the first page.
Would you date a man who isn't Google-Worthy? If he's not on Google, is he date-worthy?
Recently, while chatting with a group of single women, I heard the most astonishing comment. One of the women shared with the group that the reason she rejected a date with a man was for not finding him anywhere on Google. What, nothing? Nope, not a thing. How can anyone go their whole lives these days without anything digitally printed on Google? She went on to say she wouldn't date a man who she couldn't do a little Google background check on. She said single women need to be ultra careful and a little homework never hurts when dating men with no references or referrals.
So with the billions and billions of digital posts about everything in the world, what are the chances a person doesn't have one mention on Google? Facebook or Twitter accounts all show up on Google. Maybe a high school graduation mention or a picture on Instagram? How about a donation to a political party?
Something usually comes up when you type in your own name, so what about someone you want to date if he isn't Google-Worthy? Is it a red flag if a person isn't mentioned on Google these days (if so, why)?
