Online Safety

Precautions to Take When Dating Online:There are several online dating tips that ensure a safe dating experience. Here are some of the most important online dating safety suggestions to follow:

  • The most important safety tip has to do with personal information. No one should give out their personal information to someone you just met through an online dating site. Never give out your home address, employer, last name, or your financial information over a dating site.
  • There are some people who try to take advantage of people registered with online dating sites. To prevent this from happening, never purchase or give out your credit card number to a fellow member of the site.
  • If you feel 100% comfortable with another member of the site, then you can set-up a face-to-face meeting. Always make sure that you designate a public place for the first meeting, such as a public park, coffee shop or a restaurant.
  • When you are going on a first date, do not let the person pick you up or drop you off at your house.
  • Before you go on a date with another member, always tell a friend the time and place of the date.

While you are using an online dating site, if you come into contact with someone who seems creepy or odd, then report their username and adult profile on the site's reporting system. An online dating site is a safe place to meet other single people, as long as you trust your instinct and use your head.

The most important rule of online dating is to have fun. Online dating is the perfect way to enter or to reenter the dating scene - and find exciting, sexy singles right at your fingertips!

Remember your safety is the most important issue. You must use your own judgment when engaging in any new relationship.
