Match.com, a popular singles website, will soon begin screening its users against the national sex offender registry after being sued by a California woman who says that she was assaulted by someone she met through the site's service. The suit said the attack could have been prevented with a proper background check and demanded that Match.com start screening for sexual predators.

The company also offers several safety tips to its users, including always meeting for the first time in public, telling a friend or family member where the date will take place, and staying sober.
