There is a great safety concern now associated with blind dating. A long time ago, blind dates were considered perfectly safe. Now, there are many reports of date rapes.
If you meet someone online, don’t reveal personal information about yourself at first. If you know nothing about the individual that you are going out with, ask around. Ask friends or family members if they know anything about your date. It is also a good idea to make your first blind date a double date. There is safety in numbers.
Make sure that your cell phone is fully charged. Also, try to plan a certain place that you will be going ahead of time and let a friend or family member know where you will be.
This might be hard to do but, if possible, get a picture of your date and send it to a friend in a text message.
