“We would like to recommend safety tips to keep in mind, when meeting someone online. It is good practice to meet at a public place with others around. It is also important to have a buddy system, when going on dates. Tell a friend, whom you are going out with, photos and contacts. Do not go on a first date, when you are not around people. Either meet at a bar or restaurant. Other advanced arrangements can only take place after, knowing each other, very well.”
