Internet dating sites have helped millions of people around the world introduce themselves to potential romantic partners.  Online dating can be perfectly safe as long as members of dating websites use common sense about how to interact with people who they meet online.  People who meet on a dating website and feel a connection with each other will naturally want to meet in person to have conversations and discover if there is chemistry between them.  Meeting in person should definitely be a priority, but it is important to go about things in the right way. 

If you are anxious about meeting an online date for the first time, your feelings are perfectly natural.  The primary reason why single people join dating websites is because they want to increase their chances of finding the right person for them.  There is only so much that you can learn about who someone really is based on their emails, telephone conversations and text messages.  A face to face chat will help you to better determine if you have chemistry with each other and if there is a mutual attraction.  Even if your instinct tells you that the person who you want to meet up with safe person to be with, make sure that you meet him or her in a very public place.  A cafe or a restaurant in a shopping mall or plaza would be ideal locations for first time meetings because they are areas where other people would be present in case your date does not go well.

Avoid having your first date at an outdoor park if at all possible, just in case the weather turns stormy.  Swatting away insects that are buzzing around you is not at all a romantic way to spend a first date!  Look at your date’s dating site member profile for clues as to what they would like to do on a first date.  Many dating websites list options for members to describe what an ideal date would be for them.  If your date had filled out the information on their member profile about what their hobbies and interests are, suggest that your first date be centered around one of those interests.  If the person who you are interested in had shared on their profile that they love sports, a first date at a mini-golf putting course could be a great first date for the two of you.  Mini-golf will give you both a chance to have a fun time getting to know each other without uncomfortable awkward pauses.  The two of you could cheer each other on and chat in between scoring on the course.  Bowling is a fun and interactive activity as well. 

It is very important to make a good first impression on your first date.  It is best to choose a first date meeting place that will not even hint to your date that you have intentions of taking advantage of him or her.  Going out to a bar should be avoided until the two of you know each other better.  Keep in mind that some people are alcoholics, recovering alcoholics, or take a strong personal stance against drinking.  Suggesting to anyone who fits in to those categories that you would like to meet them for the first time at a posh bar or at a honky-tonk might make that person feel suspicious of you and your values.  Once the two of you get to know each other better and you know where you both stand on drinking alcohol, you will know whether or not to have future dates in bars.  The first date is not the time to take a chance that you might get drunk, slur your words, and act in a way that you may regret after the date is over. 

When you are deciding where to go for your first date with a match from an online dating website, always review their dating site member profile for information about their likes and preferences.  If your date had listed on his or her profile that they are not fond of animals, don’t make the suggestion of going to the zoo for a first date.  Again, for your own safety, your first date should be in a public place and not at each other’s homes.  Sports games, concerts, art museums, and aquariums are all fun and lively public places that would make great first date options for you and your sweetheart.  Wherever you go, make sure that you make every effort to get to know the person who you are seeing.
