Online Dating is Great. Just be Safe about it.

When chat rooms were first introduced more than 10 years ago, there were a lot of people being dishonest about who they were online. Although we have come a long way since then, there are still some things you need to know about dating safely online. Follow these online dating safety Doís and Doníts to ensure you have a safe and pleasant experience with online dating.

DO give out your phone number to someone you are interested in.

DONíT give out your home phone number. This number can easily be traced back to your address, and you donít want just anybody to have access to that. You wouldnít give your telephone number and home address to the guy in line behind you at the supermarket would you?

DO have your first meeting at a coffee house or other public venue.

DONíT accept your dateís offer to cook you dinner in his home on your first date. While this is a very romantic notion, he is still a stranger. Likewise, do not invite him to your house before you know him personally either.

DONíT accept your dateís offer to pick you up or drop you off at home. Do not let him know where you live, until you know him well.

DO verify as much as you can about your match before meeting him. In the age of the World Wide Web, it is a lot easier than you think. If he claims that he works as the senior manager of a company, a simple Google search will confirm or deny that claim in minutes. Look him up on Facebook and check out his profile before meeting him. Make sure everything matches up.

DONíT add potential matches on Facebook before you meet them IF you are one of those people who posts very personal information on your Facebook page. Keep your Facebook privacy settings at high, or limit what he can view.

DO ask to meet his friends early on. Itís crazy, but some people make up a lot of interesting stories about themselves when they are behind the computer screen. Hanging out with his friends will force him to be honest if he hasnít been.

DONíT go on a weekend away with him until youíre really sure you know who he is, and that you can trust him. Leaving the comforts of your city is a dangerous thing if you donít know who youíre with.


My friend was always getting guys to pick her up at her house because she didnít have a car. It scared me so much, I became her designated driver and dropped her off and picked her up every date.
