There is safety in numbers and meeting for the first time in a restaurant or coffee shop would provide enough witnesses should the date turn sour.
Having your own wheels gives you control should the date go bad.
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.
Now remember, I’m a safe guy and so are most; however, alcohol impairs our senses and the last thing you want to say in the morning is, “Why did I do that?
As a man who is an excellent communicator and emotionally connected, I was one of the most dangerous of daters.
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?As your heart protector, here are some common sense safety tips when you think he’s different: First, meet in a public place.Meeting and building quick rapport is so easy online and lately I’ve noticed that women all too often let their guard down, lose their common sense or abandon their self protection to a total stranger.Reflecting back to when I was single and looking after my divorce, I’m shocked at how easily a woman WHO I DID NOT KNOW would invite me to her home (having never met me before) after a few chats via phone/email/text.It was kinda easy to WOO and WOW women on the phone and they not only thought me safe, they felt an almost unique connection with me.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.
