Safe Dating Tips

With online dating you have the advantage of being able to chat to your date and get to know them a bit before arranging to meet.

Moreover, when you use our messaging system you remain anonymous. No one can see your personal details such as your address or phone number. That is why we advise you make sure also that you have not revealed any details such as your address or phone number in your profile or in any message you send.

And, you don’t have to make any arrangement to see someone in person unless you wish to do so.

Nonetheless, once you decide to meet someone you are responsible for your own safety.

If you follow these basic guidelines you will avoid problems and stay safe:

  • Always make sure that someone you trust knows where you are going and when you are expected back
  • Always meet in a busy public place
  • Do not give your home address and telephone number to a stranger
  • Do not accept a lift from a stranger
  • NEVER invite a stranger into your home
  • Trust your instincts – don’t do anything you don’t feel comfortable with
  • Put your safety first even if it means risking offending your date, if they are considerate they will understand

These are the basic guidelines for safe dating but if you would like further advice you will find more useful tips below.

MORE SAFETY ADVICE

Using the messaging service

Use our messaging service to get to know people well before you meet them. The following are helpful tips on making the most of this and keeping safe:

  • Do not give out any personal details in messages – your address, phone number, bank details, work place
  • Take time to ask someone about themselves and their lives so you can gradually build up a picture of their personality and circumstances - but don’t expect them to give away their personal details either at this stage
  • Watch out for inconsistencies in what you are being told
  • Be suspicious of any avoidance of any reasonable questions you have
  • Don’t give away anything about yourself that you wouldn’t normally reveal to a new acquaintance
  • Don’t let someone pressure you in any way – either to meet or to reveal personal information against your will
  • Remember that if you are not happy with someone you can block them and prevent any further communication
  • If you have any suspicions about someone abusing the site, report it immediately

Arranging a Meeting

Don’t rush into agreeing to meet someone and only do it because you want to, not because you’ve been asked and feel you ought to.
Always use the following guidelines:

  • Make sure someone you trust knows where you are going and when you are due back
  • Meet in a public place – a cafe or pub in a busy well lit area
  • Make clear before you meet that you are going to have to leave at a certain time so the date has a clear end
  • Plan how you are going to travel home

The First Meeting

Again there are some simple guidelines which will help to keep you safe:

  • At this stage it is still advisable not to reveal your personal details
  • Be careful not to allow alcohol to let your guard down and compromise your safety
  • Do not accept a lift home from your date
  • Do not invite your date into your home
  • If you have any bad feelings about your date, trust your instincts
  • If you wish to leave, don’t be polite – after all there’s no point wasting everyone’s time

Any Further Meetings

To begin with it is advisable to continue following the same guidelines as you used in your first meeting. Here are a few other useful tips:

  • You can use further dates to establish the truthfulness of what they have revealed about themselves – arrange to go for a drink with some of their work colleagues or with friends they have told you about – but again, make sure you follow the guidelines for a first meeting
  • Invite them out with your friends – a second opinion is always helpful
  • The building up of trust is a gradual process, don’t rush it

Revealing Personal Information

The decision to reveal personal information as you get to know someone should be part of a two way process.
Make sure you use it as an opportunity to find out useful information which you can use to establish their authenticity – for example information about their job and work place which you can then check out.

And finally

Remember, most people are as genuine as you are.
Follow the guidelines, use your common sense and trust your instincts and you should not only stay safe but you may be on your way to finding that new friend or lover you were looking for.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to
be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do
not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon
the top and defined out the whole thing
without having side effect , people can take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
