|How to overcome online dating problems
It is exciting to meet someone you met at an online dating
service. However, you must practice cautionary measures so as to
avoid having problems when you meet him or her. The following
are some guidelines to have a hitch- and worry-free dating.
1. When meeting, do make up arrangements first. Since you barely
know the person, do not let him or her meet you from your home.
2. Meet in public places. If it is okay with your date, you
could ask another pair or some friends to go with you. If he or
she is genuine in his or her interests, this shouldn't be a
3. If you are having a lunch or dinner in a café or restaurant,
you should shoulder half of the bill. By paying half of the
bill, you are free from obligations that you have to meet the
4. If you have your own mode of transportation, like a car, you
should use it. Do not rely on a date's car so that you won't
feel that you have to ride with him or her if the date turns
5. Try to avoid alcoholic drinks while having the date.
6. If you are planning to meet your date the second time around,
arrange for one and evaluate if he or she deserves to know your
personal home address. Never give your address when meeting the
person the first time.
7. Do not go to secluded and dimly-lit areas at night. Try
staying in crowded places as possible.
8. Try listening to your intuition. If something doesn't feel
right, then it would be better that you assess it. If something
is really troubling you or is not right, maybe it would be best
that you thank your date and leave as soon as possible.
9. Tell a friend your date's contact details and plans for the
date. It might be wise for him or her to check you from time to
time. You could also ask some friends to meet you and check up
after your date with the person.
11. Remember: Do not ever give your personal contact information
to a person you barely know. He or she should understand if you
are not giving him or her your personal contact information, at
least on your first date.
12. Be alert at all times.
Like traditional dating, online dating has some risks, including
safety concerns. To avoid having problems in your online dating,
just remember the tips above.
