Cyber dating tips women
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says that 1 in 5 children are sexually solicited online.
According to Match.com, 1 in 5 relationships begin online. It could be your worst nightmare or a dream come true.
Meeting and building quick rapport is so easy online and lately I’ve noticed that women all too often let their guard down, lose their common sense or abandon their self protection to a total stranger.
Reflecting back to when I was single and looking after my divorce, I’m shocked at how easily a woman WHO I DID NOT KNOW would invite me to her home (having never met me before) after a few chats via phone/email/text.
Besides, this can be used as an escape clause if you feel like the date isn’t going well: “Hey Jim, my friend needs me because of an emergency and we have to end the date.” Third, drive yourself to the date and drive home by yourself.
Safety is still safety and being safe ALL the time is a better bet than trusting your gut with someone you have never met, don’t ya think?
So there you have it, quick and easy safety tips for the first date meeting from an online connection.
