How to stay safe on dating
According to loveflutter.com, one way of staying safe on a dating site is to avoid jumping in the boat so quickly. If someone is quick to meet ask yourself why. What ulterior motive or angle might they have? Do they want sex on the first date or is there something more sinister they are pursuing? Asking these questions could literally save your life. Chat with the person for a while and truly get to know them. Resist the urge to apply your fantasies and draw a picture of them, instead accept them for who they are. One major rule that should be second nature is to meet in a public place until you feel comfortable going private.
