Dating Safety Tips

Singles always have to be careful when dating online so shared interest dating site has published important dating safety tips that everyone should follow when first getting to know someone online.

  • Always trust your instinct -- after all, it's gotten you this far in life already 
  • Take your time and look at lots of different profiles to get a feel for what kind of person you want 
  • Never publish your phone number or email address 
  • Don't take anything at face value -- it's easy to lie online, and many people do 
  • Ask lots of questions when chatting with your potential mates 
  • Make sure you feel comfortable with whoever you are chatting with, at all times 
  • If someone is abusive or rude, block them immediately
  • Don't give your home or work address to anyone you have not met in person 
  • Before agreeing to a date, make sure you know as much about the other person as possible 
  • Don't allow yourself to be talked into anything -- you're the one in charge 
  • Take your time to get to know someone -- don't be rushed 
  • A patient person will be happy to wait until you are ready to meet 
  • Make sure anyone you're talking to is willing to provide photos and information about himself or herself 
  • Ask your date to leave a message on your voicemail beforehand, if possible 
  • Chat on the phone for a while before arranging a date 
  • Always meet in a well-lit public place 
  • Always tell a good friend where you are going and who you're meeting 
  • If possible, step away and call a friend during the date to confirm that everything is ok 
  • Always carry a cell phone on a date 
  • Schedule lunch dates -- they're convenient and they have a time limit 
  • Always make your own travel arrangements to/from a first date 
  • Do not accept a ride home on the first date or reveal your address
  • If you're traveling far, always make and confirm your own hotel arrangements
