just to make sure they don't have a criminal record1
wouldn't that kinda defeat the purpose of a blind date?
And personally i'd be more than a little weirded out if i went on a blind date, and found out she knew a ton about my lfie already. Seems kinda... stalkerish to me.

If the Internet has taught me nothing else, it's to have a knee-jerk "Google it" response ANY time I'm encountered with an unfamiliar situation... even when it probably won't do much good, as in this case.
That cost money for all of that
I always try to find out as much as I can about ANYONE I'm talking to
No... I don't :)
I feel like that could make me biased in my view of them before even giving them a chance/opportunity.
I don't go on blind dates but if I did, then yes, I'd google them.
I never go on blind dates, so that problem never occurs to me. However, you should do it if it makes you feel more secure.
