Safe Dating for Men and Women

Dating is supposed to be fun. Unfortunately if we don’t take a few steps before hand we could be putting ourselves at risk. Here are some tips to help men and women stay safe.
Arranging the meet
Many will use the internet to arrange meets, first of all make sure that the site has a good reputation and active community, it pays to get to know a few others in the same community before arranging anything, word gets around and when you get to know a few people they will be able to provide good feedback on others, swinging communities are very tight knit and also likely to have groups within your area, for example if you lived in Tweed Heads, Australia you would have all of these Tweed Heads Swingers to interact with.
Have a Plan
You need to have a plan before you start to head out the door for your first date. Know where you are going and with who, and tell a friend. Also be sure that you meet the date so you have your own transportation. Just as a child shouldn’t get in a car with a stranger, neither should an adult. Keep your phone charged and have a preset emergency call planned.
Don’t Brag
One of the traps that men fall in to all the time is they start to brag about their great job, drive their great car, and take a woman to a very expensive restaurant or event for the first date. While many women will be impressed by this, others may see it as an opportunity. You don’t want to become victim to someone who will rob you or steal your identity. It’s not talked about as much, but it’s not an uncommon scam. Avoid talking about what’s in your bank account before the date. Don’t allow them to meet at your place, and keep everything low key.
Trust You’re Gut
You hear stories time and time again about people who end up in bad situations and they will say later that they knew something was off. Your natural intuition is a powerful tool. Listen to it! If you meet someone and something feels off, just end the date and go to a friends place instead. It’s better to fake a stomach ache or illness than to ignore your gut and end up in a dangerous situation.
