Safety Tips for Online Dating

Jul 23, 2008
Online dating has helped a number of people in finding their life partners. However, there are some cases of fraud as well and so, it's very important to follow some basic safety tips in order to make sure that you are not going around with someone who is not trustworthy.

Talk on the phone before you meet: A number of people have successfully found their partners by online dating but it takes time to understand each other. After exchanging some emails and messages on messengers, if you think she's the one for you then you should try to talk to her on phone before meeting her at some place. Talking first on the phone is much safe than meeting an unknown person at some unfamiliar location.

Some people are reluctant to talk on the phone and prefer meetings but talking to someone on a phone is a nice way to check out whether she's really the one meant for you or not. Phone conversation is instantaneous and on the phone, you can see whether the chemistry really exists or not. With the help of some phone calls, it's possible to check out whether her thoughts are similar to yours or not and whether you should move on to next stage of dating or not.

Arrange a meet in public places: For the first few dates, it's advisable to meet each other in public places as meetings in public places are safe for both. A girl might be reluctant in meeting you at a private place on the first date and so, you should try to arrange meetings in public places. If you're meeting someone for the very first time after exchanging some emails on Internet then public places are the safest places for meetings as you should not call an unknown person to your place. Wait until you know her a little better and then you can arrange meetings in private places. It's very easy to be someone else on Internet and this is the reason why you should consider public places for arranging initial dates.

Don't give away too much personal information: It is advisable not to give away too much personal information until you think you know her a little better and have gained confidence in her. An individual must understand that giving away personal information to an unknown person can cause serious problems. If she is genuine then she will definitely understand your reluctance regarding giving away personal information and so, you don't need to worry about causing offense.

Inform someone before going for the first few dates: After exchanging initial emails and phone calls, you are most likely to fix a place for a date in order to meet her. For safety purposes, it is advisable to inform someone about your date before leaving for it. You can leave the phone number of the person whom you are dating and also, the information of the meeting place. You may do this until you think you know her a little better and have gained confidence in her.

An individual must understand the risk involved in meeting an unknown person. Also, you don't know much about the person whom you met online and so, there is an element of risk involved in meeting the person. So, an individual must inform someone about the date before leaving for it.
