Dating can prove to be a wonderful experience provided that it is done in safe way. You might want to think that the guy you just meet is really nice, wonderful and polite and could date with you but he could also give a false impression.
Giving the phone number
While this could be the means of communication between you and that person, you should keep it for yourself for a while. Think of this as having to be earned.
Talking on the phone
In terms of what you like doing, what are your hobbies, preferences and other issues, you should be talking this face to face with him and not on the phone. Make eye contact, have a conversation face to face rather than giving details on the phone.
Ready for a rendez vous
Go and meet him at a location you have previously established. Make sure you drive in separate cars, because when first meeting someone, it is best to drive separately. That way, if you don’t like that person, you can leave.
Going out for dinner
If you are going on a date, he is normally going to pay for the dinner, as the tradition says. However, guys might expect more when they have to pay for the dinner, therefore bring your own money to it.
Having strangers in your house
After having dinner a couple of times, you might feel like you know the person and you can invite him in your house. If you feel comfortable doing this, then you should probably go ahead. If you are still having mixed feelings about somebody, then you should probably avoid doing so and just walk away.
When the date ends
If you had a rendez vous and it’s now over, you should be driving in different directions so that you do not end up taking the same direction, which would be embarrassing. Therefore, make sure you switch directions and go the other way.
The tips above might help in being more cautious when you first meet someone. This is not to say that every guy out there is a criminal, but do not be naïve in your thinking and keep things straight and safe from the very beginning.
