Safety Tips for Online Dating

Many say the world is ending in 2011. Is this true? Maybe, maybe not. One thing holds true, we must live each day as it is our last. Likewise, if you are online dating, you must meet each date" as if it is your last. What do I mean? Let's face it, the news is full of dating stories that sadly end up in ones brutal beating, rape, or demise. As a friend of 2 rape victims, they have not and may never fully recovered from this traumatic experience. Therefore, ensuring safety "before" the date is imperative.

How do we safeguard ourselves? We try our best to find out one's first and last name. Not what their friends call them, but the name that is on their social security card and or drivers license. Once we have that information we can go on the information superhighway and do a “google” Click Here!">search of their name. The search engine will identify any information about them. This is a great place to start but for further information, go to a registry website that will further assist us in checking out our prospective lover.

Next, tell others close to us this information "before" you go on the date. Tell those close to you the person's screen name, internet site you met them on, and the location/time you are meeting.

Also, meet "only" in a public place, and like Oprah says, “never follow them to a second location". This rule does apply on a first date, because you are still unfamiliar with the person's intentions at this point. Drive your own car to be able to leave if needed. Driving your car also helps so there is an identifying tracking device so to speak, if needed. Once you meet your date, try to text their license plate to a friend (even if you are not driving in their car). License plates will certainly lead to the car registrant’s true identity if needed. Don't drink too much on a first date and never leave your drink idle. Make sure you see what is going into your drink every step of the way if your date picks it up at the bar.

Other ways to ensure safety is to check with your local authorities about this issue and surf the net below for more information. Common sense is the rule of thumb when online dating. So use it, your life depends on it!
