Whether you slowly grew apart or caught your partner red-handed, the end of a relationship is so hard. You might feel lingering reminders of them everywhere you look, from the coffee mug they gave you to the shirt they forgot to pack when they left.

Listen, I totally get it. Getting over an ex after a breakup is hard. It’s packed with feelings of longing or unresolved questions. Believe it or not, people are using this website called TruthFinder to find the closure they need. (Finally.)

Maybe you want to reach out to your ex one more time, or maybe you just want to see what their life looks like now. Here’s how TruthFinder can help you get the answers you need.

You Can Finally Find Peace Of Mind

When you use TruthFinder to look up a lost love, you'll get access to important pieces of background information pulled directly from real public records. You might find details like:

  • Social Media Activity: Even if they blocked you, you can still get a bird’s-eye view of their social presence—even accounts they kept secret from you while you were together.

  • Location: Maybe they ended things because of a cross-country move to a glamorous city. So why does their location report say they live somewhere completely different? You can even uncover potential roommates by checking out the “Possible Associates” section of their report.

  • Marital Status: You always had a sinking suspicion they were seeing someone else. If their TruthFinder report lists an unfamiliar last name or alias, there’s a chance you were right all along.

  • Criminal Background: You thought you knew your partner completely. But if they never told you about their string of criminal records, you might question who they really were.

Best of all, your search is totally discreet. Nobody will have to know you looked up your ex. You can search safely and securely — and maybe even find the answers you need to move on with your life.  

I didn’t think anything would help, but a TruthFinder background check was an important part of moving past my breakup.

Here’s how it can work for you.

1. You Want To Reconnect

Did your relationship end while there was still potential for more? Maybe it ended on tenuous terms, and you want to see if there's a chance to reignite the flame. Well, there's nothing worse than trying to catch up and finding out your ex is already married with a family. Instead of wasting your time, get a background check to see if they’re still available.

Maybe you can't move on, no matter how hard you try. Sometimes, getting in touch with the person again and seeing how far the relationship can actually go is the only way to resolve this feeling. There's no harm in trying to see if there's an open door.

You can also get insights into their social media activity to see if they’re in a relationship or not. If they’re single, then you can feel confident in asking them to meet up for a cup of coffee. After all, maybe you just want to rekindle the friendship. You don't always have to pursue a romance with an ex. If you were both great friends before the relationship, it’s only natural to want to reestablish it. 

2. You Want Closure

Relationships often end on bad terms. Maybe you both were hot-headed and ended your love story with an argument over the phone that cut off ties for good. Though you know it's over, sometimes you need to hash things out one last time. 

With TruthFinder, you can actually uncover extensive contact details about almost anyone in the United States. You might find phone numbers, email addresses you never knew existed, and physical addresses if you want to try snail mail. You can even view related persons (and their contact deets) in your ex’s report. If your ex has cut off all communication with you, you still have options.

Here are some reasons why you may want to gain closure through getting your ex's contact information from TruthFinder:

  • No matter how much time has passed, you still feel like you have unresolved questions. If anger or sadness about the relationship still affects you, you may need to have that one last conversation with your ex to fully let go.

  • You want to ask forgiveness. Maybe you were the one who broke up with your partner and still feels immense guilt over how much you hurt them. Reaching out and apologizing can give you both peaceful closure.

  • You're just curious about how they're doing. Sometimes you just want to know how their life turned out. You don't even need to contact them after you confirm that they're happy and well.

Fortunately, TruthFinder gives you an extensive list of personal details, including social media profiles, landlines, cell phone numbers, and possible associates. You’ll be able to track them down in case any of the following situations happen to you:
