Although you might be looking forward to playing the field and getting to know a few different guys, you have to think about keeping yourself safe while dating. Hopefully, you’ll never have to deal with a situation in which you’ve met a man who doesn’t have your best interests at heart. However, you never know what could happen when you’re meeting new people. Luckily, following these tips can help you stay safe while you’re dating.
1. Don’t Invite Him Over Just Yet
Be careful about who you invite over to your home. Even though the idea of spending date night at home can sound appealing, it’s best to wait until you’ve met a guy a few times and have gotten to know him before you tell him where you live or invite him into your home.
2. Meet in Public Places
For the first few dates with a new beau, make sure that you meet up at a bar, coffee house or other public location.
3. Bring Your Own Wheels
At first, it’s best to drive yourself or to take public transportation versus getting in the car with someone you don’t know.
4. Tell Someone
Let a friend or family member know when you are going out with a new guy. Then, if they don’t hear from you, they’ll know to check in.
5. Go With Your Gut Instinct
If your gut is telling you that a certain guy is bad news, listen! It’s just not worth it to put yourself in danger when there are so many fish in the sea.
