How can you be safe on online dating?
Most Helpful Guy
I know it is scary for women in general. Then you add online dating with all the wackos out there.
1) Meet the guy at the location of the date until you feel safe enough to let him pick you up.
I have had women let me pick them up the 1st date but that was after almost a week fo chatting via text. I also had 1 that did not tell me where she lived until the 4th date and everything in between.
2) always let a friend know where your going and the name of the guy (or girl) your meeting. give her the screen name also. Write it down and leave it on the table as a backup.
3) meet at public places. Don't go for a walk at a remote park your first couple of dates. stay public.
4) Trust your gut. If you have a bad feeling about the person your probably right. And I don't mean "I don't like his haircut.."... if you just get the willies being near him leave.2
