Dating Sites, Apps & Safety

“Have a nice time, darling! Make sure you call me when you get there and when you leave!” Sound familiar? This was from my mom when I’d go to friends homes. In high school, my dad always gave me some quarters before I went out on a date (back in the days when there were pay phones) and told me to call him at any hour, if things weren’t going well and he’d come get me.

Of course, back then, I thought they were just being overprotective. But today, their safety reminders turn out to be good advice for everyone using Online Dating Services.

We all need a safety call. When you consider the excitement of going on a first date, it’s very tempting to rush into it without planning anything more than what you’re going to wear and the best shade of lipstick for the occasion.

But we’ve all read the news and heard stories from concerned friends about someone who was hurt or killed when they met someone, in person, from an online dating service.

With so many singles using Online Dating Services to meet people, safety calls are always a good idea. Like my mom and dad always said — have a nice time, but make sure to call!
