Tips For Safe Online And Offline Dating For Older Singles

Posted by admin on 08/31/2016

The elderly people should be careful while dating with the unknown people, whom they meet on these dating sites. Hence, they should follow certain guidelines regarding their own safety and privacy, so that they may not need to face any undesired situation.

Know the online dating partner very well - Though most of the dating sites for older people verify the personal information and contact details provided by each member; the chances of any fraud cannot be totally ruled out. Hence, it is necessary to chat with or contact any probable dating partner through emails, while being alert about them. It is more important to know about them, before meeting them in person, on a date. The information given about the personal and occupational background of the dating partner can be checked through the personal contacts and the net searching.

Keep contact details secure till the relationship becomes too reliable - It is better not to share the contact details with the dating partner, unless the relationship turns to be too close and the partner can be really believed to be reliable. If any newly contacted person asks for the address or phone number, it will be wise to turn down that request straight away.

Use onsite email id of the dating sites - Most of the senior dating sites have the option of providing third party emails or onsite email ids to their members, so that the members can keep themselves anonymous, if they want. It is advised to use these onsite email ids for contacting the new dating partners, rather than disclosing the real personal email id, to protect their own privacy.

Keep the dating site access info secret - It is safer not to share the password for accessing the online dating sites with anyone else. Therefore, the member of any dating site should never forget to log out properly, at the time of quitting that site, on his/her personal or public computer.

Report any unnatural behavior of other members - If any other member of a dating site sends any abusive or even uncomfortable messages via online chatting or email, it should be reported to the administrative authority of that site immediately. Any repeated urges for disclosing the personal contact details may also be reported to the site authority, so that they may ensure the protection of their genuine members. If any fraudulent matter is known about any other member, it should be reported as well.

Block any suspicious member - There are also options to block these unfriendly types of people from contacting that particular member, if he/she wants. If any member does not seem to reply truthfully, it is better to avoid such people and they can be blocked from contacting too.

No financial request should be attended - If any member asks for lending him/her any amount of money, it is better to turn down that request. Moreover, this matter can be reported to the dating site authority as well and that member should be avoided instantly.

Be careful during offline dating - The over 50 singles should be even more careful while going for an actual dating with their online dating partners. So they need to take certain precautionary steps, to save themselves from any danger.

  • It is best if this first offline meeting takes place in any crowded public location; like a restaurant or a park that is visited by many other people.
  • It is safer for female members to ask any close friend or a family member to accompany her, during her first meeting with her online dating partner.
  • The mobile phone of the dating partners should not be switched off, during their first meeting in person, after their online dating sessions for some days.
  • The elderly people should not accept a ride in the cars of their dating partners, for ensuring their own security; rather they should travel in their own conveyances or hire any taxi or rental car on their own.
  • It is better if these elderly singles inform their family members about their dating program, including the time and the venue of the dating, as well as the details of his/her dating partner.
  • The dating partners should remain calm and must avoid drinking too much, so that they can keep their senses, while dating.

Lastly, it is advised not to go for personal meetings, unless the online dating partners know each other quite well, after a long online dating, through the popular over 50 dating sites.
