Be Responsible and do your own Research - There is a limit to an online dating provider’s ability to check the backgrounds of users and verify the information they provide.
The vast majority of people using dating sites are sincere and honest in the information they provide and in their reasons for joining.
However, there are exceptions, and you need to be aware of how to keep yourself - and your bank account and savings - protected while meeting people online.
Connecting With New People Online Get to know people, take your time and trust your instincts.
Act with caution and learn more about someone before contacting him or her outside of the dating site.
Trust your instincts and immediately stop communicating with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable or apprehensive. You don’t owe the other person anything, no matter how long you’ve been chatting or what’s been suggested. If you’re raped or sexually assaulted on your date, help is available.
