Trust in online dating
If you are made to feel uncomfortable at any time attract the attention of someone around you.
Tell a waitress, a security guard, a passerby, a stranger in the bathroom - just attract the attention and support of someone around you – and leave.
Be suspicious if your date insists on meeting at odd hours unless they have a legitimate reason. If you can't drive to the chosen location then get a friend to drive you, take public transport or a taxi. Tell a friend or family member where you're going, what time you're meeting and how long you expect to be.
Give the friend a copy of your date's contact details and make sure you date knows you've done this.

It may sound like a cliché but always trust your instincts. Similarly if your gut is telling you that you've met the most amazing person in the world, arrange a second date!

But now I have someone care about me and look out for my well being as much as I do for her — this is much more than we both hoped for!
If you change locations, such moving to a different bar or restaurant, call or text message your friend to keep them updated.
