Take Your Time - Sometimes when you're excited about someone, your instincts can be confused by strong feelings.
Take care and take your time when you talk about yourself.
Skype and Internet Calls Use the Internet to make calls safely.
You should check if the dating site you are using is a member of the Online Dating Association (ODA).
Take things slowly and share more information when you feel comfortable doing so.
It is impossible to get back information once you have given it away.
Creating your online dating profile: protect your identity and personal information Be Anonymous - Choose a username that doesn’t let everyone know who you are.
Don't include your surname or any other identifying information such as your place of work either in your profile or when you first make contact.
Never feel embarrassed to report a problem to the dating service. The safest plan is to meet somewhere public and stay somewhere public. Make your own way there and back and don’t feel pressured to go home with your date. The way people interact online isn’t always the same face-to-face. No matter what the circumstances, sexual activity against your will is a crime.
You don’t need to give out your life-story the first time you chat – and you shouldn’t.
There will be plenty of time to share such details if your relationship develops.
- Stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or who seems to be trying to trick you into providing it.
If this happens contact the dating provider immediately to not only protect yourself but other users too.
