Safer dating

Our help and advice is split between online and offline dating:

Safer online dating

You can be anonymous
Some people, especially females may like to be totally anonymous until they are ready to meet for the first date. This is what you should consider. Create a brand new email address for the purpose of dating, a free account with Gmail or Yahoo is perfect. Don't use your real first name. Most importantly, don't reuse social media photos as you can use Google to find all other copies. Take a brand new set and crop your head off with our easy tool when you add a picture.

Never send money
No normal person will ask for money from someone they have only met online. Even if they make an amazing reason, never send money. They are a scammer.

Check what people say
Use social media to see if people's stories back out. Before you meet in real-life you may request the other persons social network pages. Follow them and take a look.

Safer offline dating

When you're ready to meet consider these suggestions:

Meet in public
Choose a busy place for a first date like a cafe. You don't have to meet at night, go out for an afternoon tea!

Tell someone
Tell a friend what you're doing, who you're meeting, where and when. Then tell them when you return back home.

Charge your phone
Take your mobile phone, ensure it's charged and has credits.

Use your own transport
Take your own car, taxi or bus. Don't accept a lift from your date.

Have fun!

Be sensible and remember to have fun! Enjoy your date.
