Hitch Dating Tips
Safety comes first
Dating online and offline should be fun. But it should also be safe. Whether you’re a dating pro or just getting back in the game, take these precautions to protect yourself in staying safe:
Meeting at a check-in location for the first time
When meeting at a check-in location, it’s always good to ask questions that will tell you more about that person. Remember to keep it interesting and use your best judgement. If it’s worth the wait, a second date just might be in the works.
Get to know the other person before meeting them offline
Get to know someone through a chat before disclosing personal information or meeting in person. We don’t conduct criminal background checks on our users, so it’s up to you to do your own research and remain cautious.
Meet in public location
Meet for the first time in a populated, public place – never meet in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment. Avoid adding your personal location, use a name of a location not an address. (at users discretion)
Tell a friend Inform a friend or family member of your plans
Tell them who you are meeting, who you just met, where you are going or from and when you will return. Bring your phone with you.
Drive yourself to and from the first meeting
Be in control of your own ride – even if you take a taxi. Securing your own ride is important. Even if the person you’re meeting volunteers to pick you up, do not get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know and trust, especially if it’s the first meeting.
