TIPS FORMEETING OFFLINE
First meetings are exciting, and normally are perfectly safe. However, always take precautions and use the following guidelines:
- ●Always meet in public. Meet for the first time in a populated, public location — never in a private or remote location.
- ●Tell a friend. Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you're going. If you own a mobile phone, make sure you have it with you.
- ●Stay sober. Do not do anything that would impair your judgment and cause you to make a decision you could regret.
●Drive yourself to and from the first meeting. Just in case things don't work out, you need to be in control of your own ride
— even if that means taking a taxi.
