Safety warnings about online dating are usually directed to women. It is very rare that you see safety warnings for men. However, men should think about their safety as well. This is because sex predators and perverts come in both genders. Let us not forget about women who cheat and lie too. This is why men should take some precautions too.
One of the most popular safety tip is never to give out any personal information right away. There are lots of reasons why you should keep this in mind. For one, these information can be used for selfish purposes. Men should be wary in protecting their private information like their real name, address, work address and any contact information. Never ever provide such information not unless you already fully know who you are talking to online.
It is important that men be warned about women who are just after their finances. There are many ways on how some women can subtly ask a man for money. Once you have noticed that they have this bad motive, cut all ties right away. They are not in it for the love, companionship or friendship. All they want is your finances and there is no way that your relationship can go on properly if that is the case.
You can also tell a lot about a woman with the way she communicates with you. If they have given you their contact number but you are not able to communicate with her through that number or it takes a while before she replies or talk with you, then keep your guards up. This may mean that she is not being completely honest with you.
Insecurity and being a nagger are some of the things men should watch out for. If she keeps on insisting that you get married but you do not think that it is not the time for that yet, then it is best that you stop the relationship right away.
