Question by Live, Love, Laugh, and Smile! 🙂: Is online dating safe, if it is done outside of a dating site?
My friend is going out with a guy, she met on a social networking site that is somewhat like facebook. Is it safe to do that?
I don’t want her to get hurt, how can I express that I am concerned?
They’ve never met, just talked online.

no.

set these guidlines for the date:

1, meet the person there. dont let them pick her up at her home.
2, take a cab, or have her meet a cab in a well-lit parking garage.
3, do not let her exchange phone #’s. if she wants to, have her get a pre-paid disposable one. use it for dating only.
4, if she decides to sleep with him that night cuz hes hot, have him get a room.
