Always be careful about giving out personal information. Oversharing can put you in a dangerous situation. Don’t give out your last name until you’ve met one time and don’t become Facebook friends prior to your date.
Do your due diligence! Check out the person’s profile and make sure the values and interests listed seem to match yours. Don’t just go by the picture, but try to find someone who you would actually be compatible with.
Always have a point of contact person who knows where you’re going to be. That way this person can be sure to check in on you after the date and make sure you’re safe.
Exchange messages – or even better – speak on the phone a few times before meeting in person. Getting to know someone a little prior to the first date will help you gauge the chemistry and ultimately determine whether or not this is someone you’d like to meet.
For the first date, make sure you meet someone public. It’s Just Lunch always sets up the first date during lunch or after work for drinks. A lot of our clients report choosing Wednesday for a first date because it’s low-key and low-pressure.
