If you met your date online, then you have to be extremely cautious. Bring a friend with you and meet in a well-lit public place, such as a restaurant.
· No Alcohol or Drugs:
Never turn to alcohol or drugs. Do not accept drinks that your date brings to you. Do not leave your food or drink unattended, and never drink from a can or bottle that you did not open yourself.
· Carry Your Cellphone:
Make a point to carry a cellphone. You can use it to call for help or to call for a ride home. If you do not have a cellphone, make sure that you only go to public places where you will have access to a phone or can call out for help if necessary.
· Inform Someone:
Inform someone that you will be on a date. Tell them where you will be, who will be with you, and what time to expect you home. Set times at which to call throughout the night to check-in, such as when you arrive at the location, halfway through the date, and when you are on your way home.It is best to talk to your parents about this.
Safe dating is happy dating.
