After a way too long dry stint of no dates and even less prospects it can be all too thrilling to finally score a first date with someone. It doesn’t matter if it’s with a work crush, blind date, or someone you met through an online dating service, you’re exciting that this date could be the first of many. Not to be a wet blanket, but this sense of elation and nerves can often push aside some basic safety precautions that you should take before going on a first date with anyone you don’t know well.
Perform a Background Check This might sound like overkill to a lot of you, but a simple background check can pull up a lot of red flags that may have you rethinking a date with someone. Background checks can show you information like marriage licenses (How many exes are too many? What if they’re currently married?), not to mention any legal altercations. While every girl likes a bad boy, everybody has a line. Is cancelling a date based off of what you find on a background check fair? Maybe, maybe not. But at the least it will give you things to watch out for and will let you know if they’re being honest with you.
Go to a Public Place Never, ever, ever-ever-ever-ever-ever meet for a first date with someone at their private residence or somewhere that’s very removed. Meet at a neutral location where plenty of people are sure to be like a restaurant, bar, coffee house, sporting event, or something else along those lines. Along the same lines, don’t get in a private vehicle with your date either – even if it’s yours.
Let Someone Know Whenever I go on an extended walk or hike I am sure to let someone know where I’m going and what time I’m expecting to be back, and first dates aren’t much different. This is doubly true if you’ve never met your date in person. Let a friend know what you’re doing, where you’re going, and when you expect to be back. Check in with them afterwards to let them know how the date went and that you’re okay.
Have an Out First dates are always iffy and you don’t want to be stuck there all night if it turns out to be a big disappointment, for either of you. That being said, it’s best to schedule something that won’t take too long. But even with short dates, be prepared to excuse yourself from the date. While you don’t need an excuse (if you’re uncomfortable, just leave!), it can be less awkward for both of you if you have a believable out. I don’t mean fake a call from the hospital about your aunt you just got in a car accident.
First dates are fun and exciting, but they can potentially be dangerous if you’re meeting up with someone you’ve only ever interacted with online, or not at all. Take some basic precautions before the date to insure your safety. That way you can relax for real when everything goes smoothly.

In the world we live in today, Latin dating in the workplace has become an alluring and sometimes inescapable facet of life. Plenty of Latin men and women have found love amongst co-workers, and many lasting relationships, even marriages, have sprouted through office romance. Unfortunately, plenty of careers have been ruined by inter-office romances gone-wrong, as nothing is more expendable than an employee that could bring down the firm with a sexual harassment lawsuit. So, as a Latin man or woman, is it worth it to pursue love in the workplace?
Office Romance is on the Rise In recent years, it’s become increasingly apparent that workplace romances are on the rise, within the Latin dating community as well as within others. Analysts on the topic cite more women in the corporate workplace (especially more Latinas) and longer work hours as the two major reasons that workplace dating has not only become more apparent, but in some ways, more essential.
The Upsides There are plenty of reasons that workplace romances can be beneficial. In the workplace, you actually get an opportunity to get to know the other person before you date them. Your office is not a bar, it’s not a fiesta where Latin men and Latin women go to drink and dance and sloppily introduce themselves in hopes that something will come of it. In the workplace, people can create meaningful friendships that will blossom into something more, instead of rushing into something that may seem forced. On top of that, women are not catcalled and ogled in the workplace (and if they are, you may want to get in touch with HR), and men are not constantly on their guard and putting up the macho façade that they think helps them pick up women. And, of course, as easy to look over as it is, the fact that you are both working in the same place generally shows that you share some sort of common interest.
The Downsides The downsides of workplace dating, on the other hand, are innumerable and generally lead to more severe consequences. Also, while the beneficial aspects of dating would affect your and your partner in a positive way, the negative aspects affect you and your co-workers as well. These aspects include co-worker jealousy, gossip, and inferences of favoritism—what’s more is that these aspects can affect a relationship even when it is going well. When a relationship isn’t, well, you’re opening up Pandora’s Box.

Online dating is an option that a lot of singles turn to whenever they want to determine their potential lifetime partner. What are some tips that should be considered whenever online dating is discussed? Read on to find out.
Online dating can be seen as the mysterious path that seems promising to a lot of singles. Currently, singles all over the world browse the Internet to find free dating sites which can aid them in turning their dream guys into real guys.
However, online dating is not as simple as it sounds. An individual who merely clicks all the free dating sites and signs up a profile in every one of them has less chance than an individual who carefully assesses herself and focuses on providing relevant, yet careful, details about her preferences.
To better get acquainted with the basics of online dating, singles should take consideration of the following online dating tips during selecting among free dating sites:
1. Specify which free dating site suits you.
Free dating sites are not exactly the same. Some are focused on dating such as Match.com and FriendFinder. Others are directed towards a serious relationship and towards marriage like eHarmony.
Oftentimes, singles might find it easier to date those who have the same hobbies as them so they go to free dating sites offering services to singles with similar interests – Millionaire Match is for rich singles while Senior Match is for older singles.
It would be better if singles decide which particular dating site they should take so they can utilize it according to its optimum quality.
2. Take online dating security seriously.
Online dating is similar to offline dating in the way that singles should still ensure their safety whenever getting to know someone. Basic online security tips are the following: never give your home address or phone number, always meet in public when meeting for the first time and go with your gut.
3. Respect to be respected.
Online dating is no excuse to get reckless and to throw in offensive comments to others. Singles should still communicate accordingly to people they meet. Also, whenever a person finds someone unsuitable for her, she should still have the decency to politely decline his advances. Not replying is considered rude.
4. Avoid white lying.
Online dating is can be full of liars who aim to scam people. On the other hand, it can also be full of potential lifetime partners. Take in mind that singles are looking for the loves of their lives in online dating – what would your lover think if he found out you lied to him in the past just to get his attention?
A relationship started with a lie is nothing but a scam as well.
5. Put your best foot forward during the first date.
Getting a first date through online dating seems like a feat to some singles. After all, the task does seem overwhelming. Therefore, after all the trouble you went through, you would want to make the first date the best dating experience your date can have.
Be confident. Go to a safe yet decent place with your date. Remember to pay deserving compliments to your date as well.
Following the mentioned tips can definitely help singles looking for free dating sites in online dating find the loves of their lives. Online dating can definitely help you in finding your soul mate – you just need to look harder.
