Here are 3 plus size dating safety tips a Curvy Goddess should follow:
1. Don’t give out personal information.
At some point you’re going to have to give out your phone number and in the next tip we’ll take a look at a few ways you can give out your number in a safe way.
For now let’s talk about your email and home addresses.
If you move your communication to personal email instead of communicating through the site do not use an account that has your full name in it (example: MaryJones@gmail.com).
With all the free email providers out there (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc) you can easily create an account to use just for instances like your plus size dating adventures. This will keep you safe from someone having access to your full name.
This shouldn’t have to be mentioned but unfortunately people still do it and it could be deadly.
Do not give out your home address! You don’t want someone you barely know that you’ve met through a dating site showing up on your doorstep.
Until you really truly know someone you don’t want to invite them to your home.
2. Use a cell number or Skype.
As mentioned above giving out your number is inevitable. It’s not recommended that you give out your home number.
Now-a-days all it takes is a home number and a Google search and someone can know where you live, how much you make, what your home is worth, how many people live in that home, etc within a matter of minutes!
It’s safer to give out a cell number or even better use something like Skype www.skype.com. Skype to Skype calls are free.
If you want an online number Skype is an inexpensive option.
3. Meet in public.
From online plus size dating to offline – When you feel comfortable enough to meet in person do it in a public place.
A place where there are lots of other people around is best.
Make sure you provide your own transportation there.
And just because you’re meeting in a public place with lots of other people around you should still let a friend of family member know where you’re at.
These are just a few of many safety tips when it comes to online plus size dating. Following these tips along with listening to your gut instinct should help you stay safe so you can relax a little and enjoy your online dating experiences.
Until next time Curvy Goddess…Stay Strong and Stunning!
