Free Adult Personals: How To Stay Safe

Aug 17, 2007
With the advent of the Internet, with its chat rooms, personals, free dating services, and even the paid sites, finding someone to date has become easier and harder at the same time. Today, there are many free online dating services as those that require memberships.

Finding the right dating service to post your profile is extremely important, but many people do not want to pay for the service. Fortunately, most free online dating services have almost the same features as the paid ones, so people can get the same benefit without having to pay for anything.

Here are some guidelines to remember when looking at free online dating sites.

1. Privacy policy
Even a free online dating site has to have its own privacy policy. This means that online dating sites should never sell or use their member's e-mail address or personal information for anything else. Privacy policies usually are long and full of "legalese," but make sure you read it before posting anything on an on-line dating site!

2. Background checking
Before you commit to a particular online dating site (or sites), check their reputation on-line. You can find a lot of information if you do a quick search.

3. Extra features
Not all free online dating services are created equal. So, even if they are free, some can provide greater features compared to others.

4. Log-in safety measures
Even if the site seems okay, remember never to use your real name when creating a user name or use an e-mail address. It is always best to maintain certain level of secrecy for your security. Make sure you do not put any

5. Free trial offers
Almost all online dating services offer free trials. The trial membership may be limited in scope, but it wouldn't hurt to try, just as long as a person observes safety online dating guidelines. After all, there's nothing to lose because they are free.

After the free online dating service is chosen, make sure to keep a few things in mind: Your safety should always be your top priority. You cannot know someone just by their profile and speaking with them on the phone. If and when you meet your date, make sure you meet in a neutral location and you have your own way home (and will not be followed). If more people used their common sense, perhaps online dating would have a better reputation.
