Get to know them before meeting them in person Make sure you get to know someone through the JustDate chat before you meet them in person. It's also a good idea to keep information like your last name, phone number and address private as well.
Do your research and be cautious.
Meet somewhere public and populated, like a busy coffee shop, for your first date. Make sure you're aware of your surroundings.
It's important to be in control of your ride even if you're getting a Taxi or using a service like Uber. You don't want to be stuck in a car with someone who makes you feel unsafe behind the wheel.
Make sure you tell a friend or family member of your plans. Let them know where you're going and what time you'll be home. Inform them if you move places, for example, tell them if you're leaving the restaurant and getting dessert elsewhere. Have them call and check up on you or hang out somewhere nearby.
Use condoms and other forms of protection to help reduce your risk of contracting or passing on an STD. Make sure you're using protection consistently and correctly.
Have a conversation about sex before you have it. It's okay to discuss the number of partners each of you has had as well as the last time you were tested. Remember to be honest.
If you're sexually active, make sure you're getting tested. It's important for your health to do so. There are plenty of places to get tested for free, so do your research. And if you are positive for any STD be honest and tell your partner before you have sex!
