Additional Safety Tips When Meeting Someone You Met Online:

  1. Don’t give out your contact information or address, even if they say they want it to send flowers or a gift.
  2. Never walk to a first date. You may be followed home if you do.
  3. Google the person you are meeting to ensure they are who they say they are.
  4. Meet in a well-lit, public place. Do not let them pick you up.
  5. Tell a trusted friend where you are going, who you are with, and what time to expect you to follow-up to let them know you are home safely.
  6. Don’t let your drink out of your sight.
