The vast majority of people using dating sites are sincere and honest in the information they provide and in their reasons for joining.
If this happens contact the dating provider immediately to not only protect yourself but other users too.
You are helping them and doing other users a favour. Agree on what you both want from it before you meet up. If you feel ready to move to a private environment, make sure your expectations match your date’s. Don’t be offended if your date is more guarded when meeting in person. Police and charities are here to help and support you.
Play it safe when you meet face-to-face Be smart and stay safe. Don’t feel pressured to meet before you’re ready or for any longer than you’re comfortable with – a short first date is fine. Contact Rape Crisis or The Survivors Trust, or for more information and advice, including other charities and support groups, visit: Avoiding Scammers Sadly, people aren't always what they seem.
Take things slowly and share more information when you feel comfortable doing so.
It is impossible to get back information once you have given it away.
