Nowadays you can get to know someone well from the comfort and safety of your own home by using the video chat feature on sites like www.attracion.com . Since many people add pictures to their profiles that are way out of date by using the video chat feature you can save the disappointment of meeting someone for a first date that bears little likeness to their profile picture!

I met my now the most wonderful husband over 4 years ago, we have a cutel 4 month baby boy. I met my husband on Craigslist, we took our time with everything in order to move to another step a phone conversation and finally to actually meet in person it took us a month. When we met, we went on dates almost daily, and I'd say by the third date, we were pretty happy, we knew it was meant to be. As a woman trying to get to know a complete stranger online, you have to be skeptical about everything, and if you get any Red Flags at all about anything I would say abort. Never give a guy your phone number until you talked to the guy at least 2 or 3 times. Block your number in the beginning. Make sure a guy sends you multiple pictures of him self and if there is many excuses about why he can't send a picture, abort. First date should only be in a middle if the day in a very public place, coffee and a walk is the best way to spend the first date. Ask as many questions about anything and everything, that will let you know how a person and their demeanor and so forth. Don't kiss and deffinatly dont "hook up" that is the worst thing that u can do and your honor as a woman kinda goes down the tubes. If in 24 to 48 hrs guy never calls you after the date to make another one, abort,( dont waste your time, its not meant to be ) don't call or text a guy after the first date, or you will appear desperate. The key is Be Alert, Be Careful and listen to the Red Flags in your head.

I don't know. For me if you ask for safety, you should look only in your place finding someone to have a date not in Craigslist.
