Did you know that 99% of the guys on are adventure travelers?
Include the name of the person you are meeting, where you are meeting them and when you expect to be home.Â Write down any personal information that you have on your date also â€“ like an address or cell phone number, and the dating site you met them on â€“ and give it to your friend or family member.
Then tell your date that you are doing this.Â Blame it on your overly protective friend or family if you feel awkward about it.Â If your date has any issue with this and gets angry or cancels your plans at the last minute then this is a huge indicator that they may not be legitimate.Â If they donâ€™t respect your need to be cautious, then move on.

Never give out banking information, details of how much your stock portfolio is worth, or the value of your home.Â And NEVER give money if it is asked for â€“ even if they seem like a genuine person.Â Scam artists are exceptionally good at seeming like really nice people who just happen to need a few hundred dollars for some emergency!
Thatâ€™s all for now.Â Next week, Iâ€™ll talk about a few other things to be wary of, but the important thing to remember is that the overwhelming majority of people that youâ€™ll encounter are there for the same reasons as you!
I’m a highly technical person and know a lot about the Internet and how it works.
Unfortunately, the anonymity of the internet makes it a perfect place for con artists to hide their real intentions while trying to entrap their victims under the guise of romantic interest.
Donâ€™t get me wrong, the vast majority of members of reputable dating sites (both paid and free) are legitimately looking for a sincere match, but there are red flags that you should look out for when embarking on the journey of online dating for the first time.
