|First Face-to-Face Meeting
|It's a good idea to take precautions when meeting people
online, just as you would do in the offline world. The following tips are
just some of the things you might want to consider as you begin online
dating. These tips are not designed to scare you, but to encourage you to be
smart, use common sense, play it safe, and have fun.
|Preparing for your first Face-to-Face
is Exciting! Smile and be Happy! but,
- Tell someone your plans. As soon as you have concrete
plans, tell your best friend or a family member exactly where you'll
be. If you have a mobile phone, enter some emergency phone numbers and
bring it along.
- Err on the side of caution. Just because you feel like you
already know your date doesn't mean that you actually do. Treat this
first date just as you would any other first date. Use common sense
and good judgment.
- Use your own transportation. Don't rely on your date for
transportation. If things aren't going well, it will be easier for you
to leave if you have your own way home. If you aren't driving, make
sure you have enough cash in your pocket for a cab ride, or arrange
for a friend to pick you up at a designated time and place.
- Agree to meet in a public place. Go to a popular
restaurant, cafe, museum, park, or any public place where other people
hang out. Double date with a friend if it makes you feel more
comfortable. Don't agree to meet anywhere isolated, unfamiliar, or
uncomfortable for you.
- Consider all information about the individual. Some states
and local municipalities may maintain public information about
