Before you go out on a first date with a guy you met online, remind yourself that you don’t know this guy. All you know is what he’s told you online. Never do anything or go anywhere you’re not comfortable. Don’t be pressurized into meeting somewhere. Hold your ground. If he is persistent in meeting somewhere you’re not comfortable, tell him to piss off and never speak to him again. Follow these first date safety tip guidelines…
Meet in a public location that is not secluded
Meeting in a public location isn’t good enough. The public location should be a place where other people will be. For example, don’t meet in a giant park in the middle of a weekday when you know no one else will be there. You don’t know this guy yet and you don’t want to risk getting yourself into a sticky situation. Somewhere like a quiet, but not empty bar or a nice restaurant is a good idea.
Tell a friend or family member where you’re going
Before you leave for your date, know exactly where you’re going. Don’t agree to meet up at a park and “go from there”. The date should be planned out with the exact time and location agreed upon before leaving your house. Share this exact location with a friend or family member just to be safe.
Don’t meet at your house or his first
I’m not a prude, so I’m not going to tell you that you shouldn’t have sex on a first date. Sometimes I think having sex early in a relationship is a good thing because you get to know if you’re compatible in the bedroom before you get too emotionally involved. Just don’t meet him at his house or have him come to your house before getting to know each other in person first.
If you don’t want to have sex on a first date, don’t go back to his house
When a guy invites you back to his house, he wants to get laid. And that’s perfectly okay. Eventually you’re going to have sex with him anyway if it turns into a relationship. But if you absolutely refuse to have sex on a first date or if you’re not sure about him quite yet, don’t agree to go back to his house or allow him to come back to yours. Simply tell him that you’re not comfortable going back to his house. If he doesn’t respect that, he’s not a real man. Therefore, you shouldn’t be dating him anyway.
