Safe Dating Tips

Dating apps and in-person speed dating events are more popular than ever. No matter how you meet a person, when going on a date with someone for the first time, you should take precautions.

Meet in Public During the Day

Preferably, meet in a public place with good lighting. A coffee shop or restaurant is a good location as others will be around if an unsafe situation arises.

Tell a Friend and Consider Checking In

Let at least one friend know where you are going and with whom you are meeting (first and last name if possible). Also, Consider letting them know a time they can expect to hear from you about how the date is going.

Have Your Own Transportation

Avoid allowing your date to pick you up on the first date. If things don’t go well, you might not want them to know where you live. Also, if you need to make a quick exit, you'll want to have your own vehicle or the Uber or Lyft app  downloaded.

Stay Sober

Alcohol and drugs can impair your judgment and incapacitate you, making you vulnerable. Avoiding substances will enable you to maintain a presence of mind while dating.

Background Check

Background checks can be attained at any point in the dating process. Whether you have had a bad experience in the past or have gone on several dates and want to make sure moving forward is a safe choice. My Case, an online database, is one of many options for obtaining public court records about arrests etc.

Get Help

If you feel unsafe on a date, are being stalked or harassed, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Contact local law enforcement, emergency hotline in your area or one of many emergency apps available on your phone.
