Q: Do you have any safety tips for members?
A: In both the virtual and real worlds, common sense is your best safety tool.

  1. Guard Your Anonymity. Never include your last name, real email address, personal Web site URL, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your profile or initial emails you exchange with other members. Take all the time you need to become comfortable with someone before revealing any personal contact information. Ask questions and make sure you are satisfied with the answers. Trust your instincts, move cautiously and be selective.
  2. Keep your personal details private. Don't give out your surname, phone numbers or address details to anyone over the Internet, until you feel safe to do so. If you choose to share your personal email address with another member, it is strongly recommended you create a web based email address such as Yahoo or Hotmail, and ensure you do not include your full name in the sender's details. Also, avoid using work emails, as it's often easy to work out who [email protected] is.
  3. Meet When YOU Are Ready. The beauty of meeting and relating online is that you can gradually collect information and then make a choice about pursuing the relationship in the real world. You are never obligated to meet anyone, regardless of your level of online intimacy. And even if you do decide to arrange a meeting, you always have the right to change your mind. It's possible that your decision to keep the relationship at the anonymous level is based on a hunch that you can't logically explain. Trust yourself.
  4. Choose a Safe Place. If you decide to meet face-to-face, be sure to pick a safe location, full of people, and familiar to you. Always arrange to meet in a busy public place - and arrive and leave on your own, using your own transport. Avoid hikes, bike rides or drives in remote areas for the first few dates. If you decide to move to another location, take your own car.
  5. Take a friend along. At least at the beginning, to meet your date and ask the friend to meet up with you again at a pre-arranged time. Work out a signal with your friend to indicate whether you would prefer that he or she stay with you. If you're not with a friend, tell someone where you are going, who with (include the person's name, phone number and address) and when you'll be back. Most importantly, stick to it.
  6. Don't accept lifts. Initially, don't go home with your date, invite them back to your home or accept a lift.
  7. Trust your instincts. If you feel uneasy about someone, there may be a reason. Don't tell yourself you're being silly. Diffuse the situation and get out of there. It's always better to be safe than sorry. Never worry or feel embarrassed about your behaviour. Your safety is much more important than one person's opinion of you.
