We all have differing personalities that range from shy to pushy, from sensitive to cold hearted, from cautious to not giving a flying flip. While we hope your experiences are positive and enjoyable, we all know there’s a lot of crazy in the world and you have to be careful. Chances are, you’ll find an interest in several people and have the desire to meet them in person. The likelihood that you’ll get it spot on in one encounter is slim, so we recommend always getting to know more about someone through our chat rooms before meeting in person. Once you’re comfortable with them through conversation and common interests, meet in a highly visible, public location the first time and let someone know where you are going to be. Don’t have one too many, stay aware of your environment. Get to know the person generally before letting them into your private world. Taking a few precautionary steps to ensure your safety won’t interfere with developing a connection that grows naturally over time. Relationships build. If it’s going to be the relationship you’ve been hoping for and one that will last, it will be worth spending time on in the beginning.
