And if you’re not smart enough.

You want to be reasonably sure this person is who he says he is (can his existence be verified apart from the site in any way?); you should be able to have several in depth conversations to get a feel for how it might be in person. You would like to initially meet in a large public place during the day (malls work great for this purpose). You want to be alert to signs of possessive behavior, short temper, impatience, excessive drinking, etc. Just try to get a general sense of demeanor. A few additional meetings of such arrangement would be advisable before moving on to more unique, intimate settings.

I think it`s not answer. You need to chech potential guy in social networks, before you will go

I suggest meeting up in a public place (restaurant, coffee shop, diner). No to a park. I would not meet up at his house, your house, his friends’ house, or your friends’ house.
Find out if he will talk to you on the site 1st. Then, later arrange a meet up and the exchange of numbers.
I had a guy who was not interested in talking on the site. His 1st question was for my phone number. I blocked him on the site.

1) Look at the pictures. If they look fake or gotten off the internet, RUN! No serial killer is going to use his real picture. There should be several photos that look authentic.
2) Look for signs of an actual personality. If the profile just seems way too politically correct, it’s probably fake.
3) He’s waaaaaaay out of your league! If the guy looks like a male model, six pack and all, it’s fake. Let’s face it, if you were getting THOSE guys, you wouldn’t be here.
4) Finally, meet in a public place. Psychos don’t have much patience. If you’ve had only one date and he’s already wanting to bring you back to his place, that’s weird. Get out.
5) *edit* Also, ask why he’s using online dating. If he doesn’t give an answer that makes total sense, get out.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for your thread here. I recently joined a dating site luckycrush.live in order to meet some new people from another region/country. Though I need to pay subscription fees to be a legal member on their board. Now I can easily start a video call or chat. Ask them anything about personal. Overall, it’s a nice experience so far. I am enjoying it. LOL!

Firstly you should find out more about each other in any case, we knew each other for one month before we started dating
JimTheBigOneParticipantOctober 8, 2019 at 7:00 am #223052
Just speak with him more, ask all kinds of questions about him and if you like the answers and they won’t seem suspicious to you and go out! 🙂 good luck!

If you’re unattractive, you won’t get any guy no matter if it’s on dating sites or real life.
IloveCatsParticipantOctober 16, 2019 at 3:43 pm #223570
I see other girls who are unattractive who still get guys.

Agreed on the comment on meeting at public places. One more tip, have you tried filtering the matches to those who are verified? I know apps such as Tinder and Bumble do offer the feature now. Of course it doesn’t ensure security but at least it signals the person is more likely “real”, so you can potentiall do some background check if needed!

If at any point you get in the car with him on the first date, take a picture of his license plate and send it immediately so that someone knows who you’re with incase something bad were to happen. I picked a girl up for a first date, she did that, and I thought it was very smart and responsible on her part.
