Many people give their personal information and numbers out freely and I think that’s a mistake. Be cognizant of what you’re doing at all times with online dating and the people you meet. When I refused one guy my Facebook account he quickly told me that he promises not to stalk me too much … While there is no official handbook or rule guide, most dating apps operate more or less the same way.
When someone says online dating, one of the first sites that comes to mind is Ok Cupid.
It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.
497 people said that they wanted to meet me on Po F’s Meet Me feature.
While my experiences here were relatively tame, that doesn’t mean it’s the case for every woman.
Most of us are quite seasoned in the online dating world.
Regardless of which site (or sites) you’re on, you deal with the same types of issues. So what is appropriate and what isn’t when you’re first chatting online?
You can give a general idea about where you work and what you do, but don’t be specific about which office building you’re in. It really depends how comfortable you are with the idea of a stranger having your number (and yes they are a stranger).
Give a general idea about your hangouts, but not details such as “every Tuesday I take a spinning class at X gym on X street”. I personally do not give my number out anymore unless there has been a first date and there is a potential for a second date.
You know absolutely nothing about them or their lifestyle. Setting your boundaries means that you don’t give out personal identifiable information about you.
