Online dating can be a fun and certainly a rewarding experience for women of all ages
Maintaining your safety while doing it is simply a combination of using common sense and exercising good judgment
Online safety rules are the same as real world safety rules
You wouldn’t give your name, address and phone number to a strange man that you met in a bar or on the street so you should never do that online either
Play it safe!
Get to know this man who could turn out to be Prince Charming before you give out any information that could make it possible for him or others to trace you
Don’t tell a stranger exactly where you work
Say that you are a legal secretary (if that’s what you are) for a mid-sized law first, not that you work for Brown, Smith and Jones Attorneys-at-law
It is safe to tell him what city you live in but you should wait to be any more specific than that until you have been chatting and exchanging emails for a while.
Use only the tools provided by the dating service you belong to.
Most offer chat and private email on their site
Do not give out your IP email address.
If you must give out an email address make it a free one such as Hotmail or Yahoo.
Your IP address is traceable for anyone who wants to go to the trouble.
When the time comes for you to have your first face-to-face:
Make that first meeting in a public place and during day light hours
Take a friend with you or arrange for one to call you on your cell soon after the arranged meeting
Remember…you ARE in control so do not let anyone pressure you into revealing more personal information than you are comfortable with revealing.
