Just thinking about your love gives your butterflies in your tummy, isn't it? Well, love is...
Dating apps are the new trend of social media. In 2020, around 270 million adults used dating apps. As much as easy it is to find someone in these dating apps, it is more difficult to find a trustworthy person. These apps are not reliable as they don’t check the background of the person. Here are a few tips for your safety in these daring apps:
Think before you write and post
Think about what you want to share about yourself. Select wisely your photos and bio. Your photo must be clear. Try to avoid revealing photos. Don’t show off your lifestyle. Make you write a basic bio that reflects your personality and what you are looking for.
These apps are not reliable and you don’t know whom you are talking to or is this the same person or not. So make sure you share only basic information about yourself and don’t share sensitive information like address, mobile number, etc.
Before making any connection with the person, make sure you do some digging about them. Find them on other social media and it is not wrong to stalk them before connecting to them. If you find anything suspicious block and report them.
If you find the right one, take some time to make they are what they are showing. Sometimes over-excitement covers your instincts, in that case, take it slow and try to understand each other, and make sure that you both are on the same page.
Prefer video call
Before meeting them, try to contact them on a video call. Make sure that you are talking to the same person. And there is nothing wrong with it.
Make sure about your comfort zone. Don’t get influenced by the other person. Take your own decision and don’t let the other person decide what you want.
Chose a public place
Always choose a public place for the first meeting. Like coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, etc. So that you both can be comfortable with each other.
Let your friends/ family know
If you are going to meet them, make sure you tell someone about it. And share your location with that person. So that you will be safe.
Trust your instincts
It is very important to prioritize your guts. If you are not feeling good about it, leave. Don’t doubt your instincts and take action.
If someone is showing too much interest in you or being romantic, and declaring their love for you within a matter of time. Make sure you don’t fall for it. If you don’t feel comfortable about it say it loud and clear. Be aware of what you are falling for and make sure everything is okay.
It is not your fault
If something goes wrong, it is okay. Take action immediately and report. Don’t blame yourself. No matter who says what if you felt something wrong report it and take action. And always remember it is not your fault.
