Some Safety Tips For Online Dating Chatrooms

Jan 16, 2008
Recent studies have proven the effectiveness of online dating. Dating sites can give people a high probability of having a serious long-term relationship which can ultimately lead to marriage. Many online dating sites have chatrooms in this article we will discuss some safety tips you can use while you're in those chatrooms.

A chatroom is a good place to meet a potential dating partner, an activity partner, or a friend. Chatrooms are completely anonymous. If you're having a conversation with someone and you decide you no longer want to continue the conversation, you can end the conversation by exiting the chatroom.

Here are some safety tips you can use when chatting in a chatroom. Listen to your heart, you must use your judgement, if someone sounds obnoxious or if someone offended you in any way. You should report them to the administrator of the online dating site or consider changing your screen name.

You should protect your identity at all times. You must be extremely careful about the amount of information you give while having a casual conversation. You should not give the person your phone number, your home address, your work address, or any other information that will allow the person to track you down. You should never reveal too much personal information about yourself.

You should not use fake photos. If you are going to exchange pictures with someone, you should send them the best picture you have. However, it should be a recent picture which does not distort your true appearance in any way. Try to avoid sending older pictures of yourself in which you may look different from the way you are at the moment. Also try to avoid sending pictures of someone else, doing this will only lead to disappointment later on.

Do not expect too much from a chatroom. If you're expectations are too high you will only be setting yourself up for failure. There are 2 things you should keep in mind, you have no idea what the person looks like. And you have no idea what type of personality they have.

Going on a date, if you have been chatting online for a while and you have spoken on the phone and you decide to go on a date with someone you met online. Remember you should not let the person pick you up at your place of employment or your home on the first date. It's best to meet them in a public place where you will be safe and comfortable.

Try to avoid drinking alcohol as this will impair your judgement, you should never let your guard down, you must try to stay alert at all times. You should let someone know where you're going and who you're going with.
