5 tips for staying safe on LoveBird
Meet in public the first time
If you want to date safely online, then it’s important that all of your first dates happen in a public setting. You could go ice skating, to the movies, there’s coffee dates, or you could even go for a nice walk around town. There will be plenty of time to Netflix and Chill in the future if the two of you hit it off.
Arrange for your own transportation
Letting a stranger know where you live isn’t the brightest of ideas. Drive yourself to the date or get a ride, but don’t have your date pick you up or take you home the first few meet ups.
Think about bringing a self defense tool
Carrying a self-defense weapon or not is your decision to make. BUT you can legally carry pepper-spray, a taser, or a pocket knife to name a few. Hey, a nice calligraphy pen could even do the trick. You have options.
Tell a friend
Let a trusted friend know you’re going out with someone new. Tell them where you’re going and set a time for them to check in to make sure you’re okay.
Most Importantly, trust your gut. If something doesn’t sound/feel right then 9 times out of 10 it isn’t. It would absolutely crush us to hear that something has happened to one of our users. So please, stay safe and stay smart ♥
