Advice for keeping dating safe

Tell friends or family about your date

Make sure someone knows who you are meeting, where you will be and what time you are meeting your date. Always take your phone with you and share your location with a trusted contact if your device allows it.

Meet somewhere public

For your first few dates meet in public where there will be other people around, we recommend never meet in your or your date’s home until you feel comfortable with the person.

Take control of your transport

Make sure you are in charge of your transport, not relying on your date, so you are able to leave whenever you want.

Do not leave your drinks or personal belongings unattended

Do not leave your drinks unattended and make sure you know where your drink has come from. Always keep personal belongings on you at all times.
