Online Dating - Apps and Laws Strive for Safer Matchmaking - NYTimes.com
Online Dating - Apps and Laws Strive for Safer Matchmaking - NYTimes.comFor fifteen years we have been advising lonely singles on ways to cyberdate more safely. Some sites offer background checks. Others do marital checks. Some guard your personal information from those you meet online until you are ready to share more. Bottom line - be careful, meet in a public place, take it slow and bring friends in the beginning (preferably sumo-wrestlers :-)). But during these days when we work 24/7...the Internet can be a big help in finding matches. Visit wiredsafety.org's cyberdating tips. And if something doesn't feel right, stop the communications and report it.
