Online Dating and Safety
Online dating sometimes makes people who are new to the idea pretty nervous. There are plenty of horror stories out there—many of them urban legends—about online dates going awry in sometimes very disturbing ways. In reality, meeting someone online today is a fairly common occurrence. The basic rules of keeping yourself safe apply to online dates, just as they do to regular dates.
Make sure you tell someone before you go out with someone you met on an online dating site. Give them the person’s information from the profile, tell them where you’re meeting and set up a time to check in.
Make sure that you don’t give address information to the person until you know them well. One of the advantages of online dating is that you can selectively give such information out and, if something seems wrong, you don’t have to meet the person offline at all.
