to learn as much about the other person as you can. Ask
questions about his history, intent and background. Use
the Women's Center.
Exercise caution and common sense
Careful, thoughtful decisions generally yield better
dating results. Guard against trusting the
untrustworthy; suitors must earn your trust gradually,
through consistently honorable, forthright behavior.
Take all the time you need to test for a trustworthy
person and pay careful attention along the way. If you
suspect someone is lying, he or she probably is, so act
accordingly. Be responsible about romance, and don't
fall in love at the click of a mouse. Don't become
prematurely intimate with someone, even if that intimacy
only occurs online. If you mutually decide to cross the
point of no return, be smart and protect yourself. The
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide

sexually transmitted diseases and preserving your

6. Do a little digging
Because privacy is of the highest importance at
LatinEuro.com, we do not require our members to submit
to background checks. We do, however, encourage members
to do their own research on potential love matches. We
recommend getting as much info as possible by asking
questions, utilizing Internet search engines (try
www.ask.com) and most importantly, using common sense.
Nothing is 100% reliable, just remember to use your head
as well as your heart. (By the way, if you want to look
into background checks on your own, simply perform a
search using your favorite Internet search engine - many
companies supply them!)
Request a photo
A photo will give you a good idea of the person's
appearance, which may prove helpful in achieving a gut
feeling. In fact, it's best to view several images of
someone in various settings: casual, formal, indoor and
outdoors. If all you hear are excuses about why you
can't see a photo, consider that he or she has something
Chat on the phone
A phone call can reveal much about a person's
communication and social skills. Consider your security
and do not reveal your personal phone number to a
stranger. Try a cell phone number instead or use local
telephone blocking techniques to prevent your phone
number from appearing in Caller ID. Only furnish your
phone number when you feel completely comfortable.
7. Meet when YOU are ready
The beauty of meeting and relating online is that you
can collect information gradually, later choosing
whether to pursue the relationship in the offline world.
You never are obligated to meet anyone, regardless of
your level on online intimacy. And even if you decide to
arrange a meeting, you always have the right to change
your mind. It's possible that your decision to keep the
relationship anonymous is based on a hunch that you
can't logically explain. Trust yourself. Go with your
8. Watch for red flags
Pay attention to displays of anger, intense frustration
or attempts to pressure or control you. Acting in a
passive-aggressive manner, making demeaning or
disrespectful comments or any physically inappropriate
behavior are all red flags. You should be concerned if
your date exhibits any of the following behavior without
providing an acceptable explanation:
* Provides inconsistent information
about age, interests, appearance, marital status,
profession, employment, etc.
* Refuses to speak to you on the phone after
establishing ongoing, online intimacy.
* Fails to provide direct answers to direct questions.
* Appears significantly different in person from his or
her online persona.
* Never introduces you to friends, professional
associates or family members.
Meet in a safe place
When you choose to meet offline, always tell a friend
where you are going and when you will return. Leave your
date's name and telephone number with your friend. Never
arrange for your date to pick you up at home. Provide
your own transportation, meet in a public place at a
time with many people around (a familiar restaurant or
coffee shop is often a good choice), and when the date
is over, leave on your own as well. Refrain from
drinking excessively, as it could impair your ability to
make good decisions. If at some point you and your date
decide to move to another location, take your own car.
When the timing is appropriate, thank your date for
getting together and say goodbye.
10. Get yourself out of a
Never do anything you feel unsure about. If you are in
any way afraid of your date, use your best judgment to
diffuse the situation and get out of there. Excuse
yourself long enough to call a friend for advice, ask
someone else on the scene for help or slip out the back
door and drive away. If you feel you are in danger, call
the police; it's always better to be safe than sorry.
Never worry or feel embarrassed about your behavior;
your safety is much more important than one person's
opinion of you. While liars, cheaters and imposters
certainly ply their craft on the Web, you'll also find
them in nightclubs and offline dating services, cocktail
parties or even sitting across from you at your local
cafe. Regardless of where you meet someone, dating is
never a risk-free activity, but a little caution will
reduce your risk in matters of the heart.
