Meeting In Person

First meetings are exciting, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you stay safe:

Get to know the other person before meeting them offline

Get to know someone through chat before disclosing personal information or meeting in person. We don’t conduct criminal background checks on our users, so it’s up to you to do your own research and remain cautious.

Always meet in public

Meet for the first time in a populated, public place – never in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment.

Tell a Friend

Be sure to tell a friend or family member your plans for meeting someone in person. Include a detailed description of when and where you are going. It is also a good idea to bring a cell phone and update your friend or family member regularly throughout the date. Tell them when you arrive and stay in contact. If you do not own a cell phone, borrow one; do not rely on a public phone.

Trust Your Instincts

Above all, trust your instincts. Do not do anything if you are at all uncomfortable. If you feel unsure about something during your online dating experience, there is a probably a good reason. Never hesitate to cut off communication and block them online. If you eventually meet in person, don’t be afraid to excuse yourself from a date, to ask someone for help, or to simply sneak out and drive away. If you feel that you are in danger, call the police immediately. You should never feel embarrassed or worry about what someone will think; it is better to be safe than sorry.

Drive yourself to and from the first meeting

Be in control of your own ride – even if you take a taxi. Securing your own ride is important. Even if the person you’re meeting volunteers to pick you up, do not get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know and trust, especially if it’s the first meeting.

Following these guidelines will help keep Divorce Dating safe and enjoyable.
