Safer online dating

There are ways to keep yourself safer when online dating, including being aware of your behaviour and how your devices work and how scammers operate.
Don't use your real name. Limit the amount of personal information you share with someone you meet online until you get to know them, preferably in person. This means that you should not share your full name, email or home addresses, phone numbers or details such as where you work or whether you have children until you have met them in person many times, and are comfortable they are who they claim to be and are a decent person (as far as you can tell). You should feel very safe with someone before you share any of this.

Use a different profile photo to any other photo of you that is online, or you have used on a social media service. This will stop someone finding you, and information about you, when they do an image search. You don’t want them to find you through the same photo on another site.

Take your time getting to know someone online. Ask them lots of questions and make sure you feel comfortable and trust them before meeting them.

Only add them as a friend on social media when you really trust them, as this gives them information about where you live, your family and friends. It also gives them a lot of other personal information such as where you go for holidays, where you hang out, who your friends are and, for those who are mums, information about your children.

Every girl should remember the rules that you say. The internet is often considered a safe place. But this is not always the case. I chose a verified site for a long time and came here - My experience has shown that I can safely trust my personal data to this site.

For a year now I have not been in a relationship with anyone, I needed a pause after a previous relationship. But now I'm ready for a new experience, but I absolutely don't know how to meet girls. How can I do this, are there any tips?
