Limit Yourself to The Site
Always communicate through SecureDating.com when you first meet someone. Online dating is not like in-person dating.
In the latter instance, you may already know enough about the person you are going out with to trust them with your phone number
and other personal contact information. The online environment is different. It will put you in touch with complete strangers.
You should therefore not provide any detail about your financial and personal contact information until you have actually
met the person and have become comfortable with them. At no time should you ever give anyone your password.
Never Send Money
SecureDating.com does its utmost to allow only legitimate users on our site.
However, you must do your part to defend against scam artists. You should never send money to anyone you have not met and do not know.
It does not matter how desperately they plead, you should refuse such a request.
Indeed, anyone who asks money from someone they are trying to date is most likely not legit.
Keep Live Chats Restricted to The Website
You should always do all chatting and messaging on the SecureDating.com site.
You can access the site at any time, day or night, to carry on with someone you have just met and are interested in.
You need not exchange email addresses or phone numbers with someone you don't know.
Doing so makes you vulnerable to hackers and scammers who are trying to get your personal details.
Report Anyone Suspicious
The SecureDating.com system monitors the behavior of our members. However, you need to do your part.
If you suspect someone doing something they should not be doing, then don't hesitate to contact our support center
and we'll look into the matter strait away. Our site maintains a report mechanism that makes it easy to do this.
If somebody asks you for e.g. money contact us instantly.
Take Time to Get to Know Someone Before Setting Up a Date
Do not rush into a first date or allow yourself to be hurried into one.
You will occasionally meet someone who you really connect with. Falling hard for someone online is not unheard of.
However, you should keep two things in mind. First, there are individuals who have mastered the art of manipulating people's emotions,
just for kicks. Others do it to try to get money out of their victim.
Subsequently, if you believe the person you've been chatting with is the real deal,
she will give you all the time you need to become comfortable with her.
Communicate with a Friend or Family
If you have set up a date and confirmed it, you should let someone you trust know that you are leaving your country
to meet someone you met online. Tell them the place you will go to and the time you expect to return back home.
You may even want to call them after your date (a text message may not suffice, as anyone can send it)
just so they can hear your voice and know that you are alright.
Avoid Drinking Too Much on a First Date
It is perfectly fine to have a few glasses of wine to reduce the anxiety and stress of a first date.
But you should keep a clear and sober head. You do not want to put yourself in a situation that will bring your close to danger
or that you will regret later. And remember never to drive a car after drinking alcohol,
take a taxi or arrange for alternative transportation.
Don't Go Home with Someone on Your First Date
If it is the first time you met a person, it might be tempting to come around for a nightcap if you had a great evening.
However, it is not always a good idea to go to somebody's house or to a remote location as you don't truly know the person
who is inviting you. If you and your date is serious, just reschedule a new date in the near future and get to know each other
a little better.
Don't Be Afraid to Get Up and Leave
Your first date is often where you'll see if there is a match or not. Often you will be able to sense if there is chemistry or not.
If you get the feeling of discomfort while on your first or second date, there is no harm or shame in politely excusing yourself
and get up and leave. There is no need to waste time and resources on something you already know is not going to work out.
