    Safety checks to make before internet dating


    The concept of internet dating has become very popular during the last decade. Every day a new dating website seems to appear trying to encourage people to join to find their match or their true love. But, for every genuine person looking for love on the site, you are going to have people who can be dangerous. Here are our safety checks before you start meeting people online to avoid any slip, trips or falls along the way.

    Look at their photo and if they don’t have one, ask!

    If they won’t provide a picture of themselves alarm bells should start ringing in your head. Why would a potential date not want you to see a picture of them? If their picture seems fake or you are worried about the authenticity of it then forget them, it is better than having a slip, trip or fall from the shock of what you see upon meeting them without knowing what they look like.

    Talk to them on the phone or ask to Skype before meeting

    This is a great way of calling a potential date’s bluff if you think their photo is old or you are not sure about them. This will not only give you a chance to see them in real life but also get a feel of who they are before you meet up in person. It is better to do this now then to meet up first and suffer a trip injury after running away from a disastrous date.

    Meet in a public place with lots of people and avoid getting drunk to prevent any slips, trips or falls

    This is a key point and should always be followed to avoid putting yourself in a vulnerable position. If you meet in public then you are keeping yourself safe from harm. However, don’t drink too much alcohol as not only could make a fool of yourself by having a slip, trip or fall in front of your date but that slip injury could be a cue for your date to act like he is looking after you when he is simply taking advantage.

    But, if you find you do have a trip accident whilst on a date or anywhere that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim. Speak to Accident Advice Helpline about how much your potential slip, trip or fall claim could be worth on 0800 689 0500.
