First Meetings Checklist
- Meet in a public place
- Keep friends and family informed
- Dress appropriately
- Stay safe at all times
Meeting your online date is very exciting because you can finally see what they look like in person. Who knows, this could lead to a second date followed by a long term relationship and even marriage. However, since this is the first time you are meeting them, it wouldn’t hurt to exercise a little caution.
This is a basic rule to keep in mind whenever you meet an online date. Refrain from inviting them to your home, or meeting them at their place. A populated public place is a good safety net just in case anything should go wrong.
Tell someone about your rendezvous, whether it’s just a date at a coffee shop or an overseas meeting. Should anything go wrong, your friend or family member will know of your whereabouts.
It is likely you will dress to impress your date, after all it is the first time you are meeting them. However, it is especially important for ladies to dress appropriately. Save your cleavage revealing tops and micro minis for your third or fourth date and dress slightly more conservatively for the first date, just so you don’t create the wrong impression.
If you have gotten to know your date well, your first meeting should go off really well and you will likely enjoy your first date. However, always keep your guard up just a little bit, at least until you have had a few more dates. Enjoy yourself but put safety first and hopefully your first date will lead to many more!
Whether you are meeting a local date, flying cross country or even heading overseas for a meeting, there are certain safety tips you must keep in mind at all times. Keep reading to find out more!
