How safe is online dating really? Well, the short answer is “Pretty safe.” It’s a good idea so long as you follow some basic, common sense rules.
Online dating is more popular than ever. Millions of people are online, right now, looking for their next Romeo or Juliet to sweep them off their feet. Online dating offers all sorts of venues and can be tailored to meet your expectations. If you want to get married, then there are online dating sites for you. What if you just want a steamy encounter? There are plenty of those sites you can visit. As always, though we need to exercise caution.
Anyone can use these sites, and I mean everyone. Everyone has probably heard of the Craigslist killer, the man who would put up an ad on craigslist and kill the unfortunate victim that came along. These are of course the exception. If online dating sites were death traps, then no one would go to them and they’d be nowhere near as popular as they currently are. You can go to almost any site and expect that you’ll be fine, but there are some pointers you may want to keep in mind:
1. Don’t give out too much personal information in your profile
It’s best if you just keep your online profile to light information like your name, your favorite color, or whether or not you think the Beatles are the best rock band ever, you should be fine. Do not put your address or phone number on your profile.
2. Be careful when you first meet people
Be sure of who you are talking to. Just because the profile shows a hot girl or a hunky guy, doesn’t mean that that’s actually whose there behind the profile. Most dating sites do a great job of screening people, but really, you can never be too careful.
3. Set meetings in public places
Do not meet at your place on a first date. It’s not safe. No matter how much you think you know the person on the other end, it’s just plain safer to meet at a cafe or a bowling alley when starting off a relationship. Always have your first meeting during the day where there are lots of people around.
Online dating is a snap and it’s so easy to find your dating niche, no matter if you’re looking to date a person of a certain religion, ethnicity, or who has the same relationship expectations that you have. Online dating is mostly safe, and with some common sense, you won’t be landing on the front page of any newspaper.
