• If someone is genuinely interested in you, this will naturally develop into a decision to meet up.
If you have been in contact with someone for a long time and they haven’t suggested a face-to-face meeting then consider ceasing contact with them.
Whether it’s a member that is not conducting themselves in the spirit of the site, a profile that looks suspicious or a message that has bothered you, tell us about it so that we can do something about it and ultimately keep our members safe and happy.
There are several ways you can report on a profile you’re unsure of: • If you have viewed a profile that gives you any cause for concern you can click on the ‘Report a concern’ link at the very foot of their profile • If you receive an email that you deem to be inappropriate you can click on the ‘Report a concern’ link within the email • If you receive an IM message that you deem to be inappropriate you can click on the ‘Report a concern’ link within the IM window • If you don’t want to talk to someone anymore you can block their profile using the ‘Blacklist this profile’ link at the very foot of their profile This is especially important to note if someone is asking you for money.
Cafés are especially good as your date can be as short or long as you want depending on how well you get on. Don’t get picked up from your house as you are giving away really private information before you’ve even met.
Also, tell a family member or friend where you are going and when you plan to get back.
We want you to have the best possible dating experience, and we are here to support you at every step of your journey.
Meeting and building quick rapport is so easy online and lately I’ve noticed that women all too often let their guard down, lose their common sense or abandon their self protection to a total stranger.
The most important advice we can give you is to trust your instincts.
Meeting your date for the first time is really exciting, but it’s important to stay safe when meeting someone new.
When arranging to meet a date choose a location that’s in public such as a café or a restaurant, as this will make you feel comfortable and secure.

• If someone avoids giving basic details about themselves, but asks you a lot of questions about your own situation, consider their motives.
