Some singles shy away from online dating because they’re afraid it isn’t safe. After all, who hasn’t heard frightening news stories about women attacked by men they met on dating websites or singles duped out their hard-earned cash by heartless scammers? Thankfully, singles can avoid most dating dangers by exercising a little common sense and by taking advantage of PlanetLoveMatch’s convenient safety features.
Common sense is key to staying safe on dating websites. Singles should never send cash to an online love interest nor should they give their personal contact information to someone they barely know (especially phone numbers and addresses). It’s also a good idea to keep friends abreast of date plans so someone knows where you are should something go wrong. Click for more online dating safety tips.
PlanetLoveMatch offers many features designed to shield members from shady singles or would-be scammers. Our Validated Identity Profile (VIP) system verifies the identity of online daters so singles don’t have to worry about being duped by dishonest men or women. In addition, PLM’s SafeCall feature allows singles to talk on the phone without revealing their phone number, relieving the pressure to share personal contact information before one is ready. Live video streaming is also handy for getting to know a potential match before meeting in person.
Unfortunately, news programs focus on online dating horror stories because that’s what draws viewers. Everyone is intrigued by a scandalous or frightening story so those are the stories the media outlets deliver. Plus, dating disasters don’t happen all that often which is why they are news in the first place. Though it may seem as if a new dating horror story hits the news every week, the majority of online daters have no problems at all.
Don’t let fear keep you from searching for love online! Everything has risks, but common sense PlanetLoveMatch.com's safe and secure dating platform can help keep you safe.
