Here are some best practices for you to follow before setting up your first meeting. Although you've developed a comfort level with this person by exchanging plenty of emails and instant messages, it's important to have a few phone conversations with the person before meeting.
Hearing their voice adds a new dimension to a relationship.
For example, if you're meeting for lunch at noon, and you expect the lunch to last one hour, have your friend give you a call at to make sure you're safe. If the date goes well, you will be making plans for another day shortly after that.
I'm not trying to paint a picture of doom and gloom.
Now I mostly would talk to moms, because as a dad, I thought them safe. Just because they read a profile and a few correspondences or shared one cocktail at a bar, they felt they knew me and felt comfortable.
As a man who is an excellent communicator and emotionally connected, I was one of the most dangerous of daters.
The worst thing is to be reliant on somebody else for transportation as it gives them the control on how long you spend together and let’s face it, it’s safer to have your own car just in case. This may be obvious, but alcohol creates bad judgement and I have known too many women who have said yes to coming to my home after a few drinks.
Someone who's shy may turn into the life of the party, but you're hoping to see the person as they really are. Tell them your whereabouts in case things go really wrong. My suggestion is to have your friend call at a point when the date should have ended.
Because some women felt an instant chemistry and even a spiritual connection with me, as if they had known me all their life…“he’s different so he must be safe.” Well the good news is that I was and am safe and so are most guys.
However, is it really worth taking the risk for the 1-2% who might be dangerous?
People are able to pull up your name, address, and directions to your house just by knowing your phone number.
To illustrate my point, go to and enter in your home phone number.
