Safe Dating Tips

One dating-related topic that is frequently overlooked is safety. It is really important to remember to be safe when you are dating.

You don't need to take any special steps to improve your safe dating practices, but following them can really help you out. 

Leave a phone number, where you're going, and who you'll be with 

Just like mom used to tell you, it's always a good idea to leave a phone number of where you will be for the night (or day).

Include in your note where you are going, who you will be with, and when you can expect to be back. This is just the common sense kind of thing that will help combat your nerves and ensure your safety. 

Keep dating to public places 

Another safety-related piece of advice that you would do well to heed is that you should ask to keep your dates to public places.

You don't need to make this a formal thing with your date, just encourage and arrange for dates in public places. Being in public helps make you safer. There are more people around for starters. 

Be firm 

Another way to feel safe when you are dating is to feel confident in your limits. Be firm in everything you say and do while dating. Do not leave any room for waffling or equivocation.

When your date or dates know where you stand, you can feel comfortable because there will be no need to negotiate your limits. 

If things should go beyond your comfort level, then you can quickly and efficiently shut him or her down and move on from the stress of having a dating relationship. 

Keep your cell phone, money, etc. on you 

And finally, if you are ready for dating, you can use the age old advice known to you by your mother. Remember to always keep your cell phone charged and ready to go.

Make sure you have enough money to get home by cab. You never know what might transpire on a date and heaven forbid you are stuck at a restaurant where you cannot get home because you are unprepared and have no money. 

As you can see, there are several safe dating tips to keep in mind as you negotiate your dating life. Always make sure that you leave a number of where you are going to be, plus the name of the person you will be with and where you are going.

This way, heaven forbid there's an emergency, you can be reached. Next, make sure you keep your dating to public places.

It's much safer to have more people around, instead of finding yourself in the kind of situation where you are under the influence of one person in particular, with no one around to help, stranger for friend. 

And finally, make sure you keep your cell phone and money securely on your person. You never want to find yourself high and dry because others couldn't step in if needed. With your cell phone and money on you, you are empowered to get yourself home if need be.
