Tips to Dating Online in Safety

Dating online can be great fun, stimulating, and exciting. So let’s first get it into perspective. Some of us just like to have fun but are sick of the singles bars and other similar nite spots that are the last resort for finding a decent partner or lover. They often result in the wrong person even if you are lucky enough to meet someone. Or, you may have once upon a time met someone that ‘fitted the bill’ but over time this has proved not to be the case any longer. So…….long story short, you are now once again looking for a better fit.

You might be just plain lonely or recently dumped by that someone who promised to be there forever. If you’re senior in years, you may just be seeking a companion or someone who has similar interests. These days, it’s quite likely that you are someone who’s busy most of the time and don’t have the time to go gallivanting around the place looking for a date and attending dinner parties with the hope that your friends have selected a decent blind date on your behalf.

Whatever your reason, online dating can definitely help make it happen much sooner than many of the other tedious activities which most of us have experienced at some stage. Of course, you are also able to do this late at night (24/7) in your ‘Jim jams’ when you have the time or better still, the inclination.

If you’ve found what you believe to be a quality site. And it has a large enough database to support your searches, then you’re halfway there. While I’m on it, it would be best to register with 2 or 3 dating sites so that you can spread your options that much further.

This brings us to an extremely important consideration and the most imperative part of the process – Your Safety!

I won’t pretend to have all the answers. But as much as Internet dating sites have proven time after time that they ‘deliver the goods. Someone nasty or let me say unscrupulous turns up. These loathsome characters can be easily avoided simply by following these rules and proceeding with caution. Follow these guidelines and you will enjoy what could be the beginning of a wonderful relationship(s) without taking any risks.

If you’re smart, these points will become your checklist and eventually a habit.

  • Remain anonymous – do not reveal your real identity, email address, home address, telephone numbers, your birthday, or indeed, your place of work during your early days of communication
  • Don’t be dissuaded from the above point
  • If you are operating from home check your ISP server to ensure your profile is not revealing more than you’d like.
  • Use alternative email services for dating (I have listed FREE services at the bottom of this page).
  • Take your time in your first telephone discussions – ask questions (nicely) remembering that they are probably in the same position as you.
  • When you do decide to meet for the first time, make sure it’s in a public place i.e. Coffee shop, etc. Do not meet at each other’s home or anywhere secluded or remote. Take a mobile with you and more importantly, tell a friend or relation where you are going. Some people even have a friend turn up and sit at another table for comfort – without anyone else knowing of course.
  • Here’s the last point – stick to all the above points no matter what!

Essential Online Dating Safety Tips

So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and follow in the footsteps of countless other singles who know that online dating from datinggrp news is a successful route to meeting new friends and finding the perfect partner. But, what do you do when you find someone you like?

Initially, you’ll want to keep all communication by email and get to know a little more about the other person. Email also gives you time to think about what you want to say. Whilst allowing you the distance and privacy to keep things from moving too quickly. And just like your daily post. You’ll be surprised how much you will look forward to checking your inbox to see if you have new mail!

Once an email friendship has been established you may feel comfortable enough to talk over the telephone. Take your time over giving out your telephone number though. If you decide that you don’t want to pursue the friendship you can’t take your number back.

Ok. Let’s assume that you’ve emailed and chatted on the telephone. You’ve decided that you really like this person and would love to meet up. Stop right there! Before you get carried away with the excitement that the prospect of new love brings, read these important safety tips prior to taking the final step of meeting that great new date from your datinggrp profile:

  • Always tell a friend where and when you are meeting.
  • Don’t give out personal information unless you feel confident to do so, especially your home address.
  • Never give out personal financial details. Never give or send out money to someone you’ve just met.
  • If traveling to meet, make your own arrangements for overnight accommodation and don’t give out the name or address of your hotel.
  • Follow your instincts. If you feel unsafe or unsure of your situation, never be embarrassed or afraid to make your excuses and leave.

On the whole, just like in everyday life. Most people you meet via the Internet will be genuine but it is important to be aware that some may not. Just following a few basic rules will ensure your safety. You might even want to arrange to ‘check in’ with a friend to let them know how the date is going. If your friends are as nosey as mine this will be the first thing they ask you to do!

Finally, relax and enjoy yourself. You never know, it could be the start of something beautiful.
