Over 28% of online daters have been contacted in a way that made them feel harassed or uncomfortable, it is better to have a plan in place then to be surprised in the moment.
Choose a better dating app or site
Dating apps like Tinder, Zoosk, Match, OkCupid are so hot that they have become an indispensable part of lots of people’s social life. Some use them to look for a serious relationship while others may just want to flirt and hook up the opposite gender. No matter which app you use, the security of the app comes first. If the app doesn’t need any verification, there may be some fake accounts.
Be careful of your personal information
When you are chatting with others on those apps, it is wise to be cautious and protect your privacy since you don’t know who really are. However, it is also natural that you want to talk to that guy or ask him out if you are really into him.
A good option is to have a burner phone number to give out so you two can talk over the phone and your personal phone number will not be exposed.
If a guy is in an off-again-on-again relationship with a somewhat crazy girl and they decide to keep in touch with each other but he doesn’t want her to have his personal line, a burner phone number is also a good choice for this situation. Some guys may just want to chat with girls and will never be in a serious relationship. Having a burner phone number keeps his personal phone number private and keep the relationship secret.
