Act with caution and learn more about someone before contacting him or her outside of the dating site.
You don’t need to give out your life-story the first time you chat – and you shouldn’t.
However, there are exceptions, and you need to be aware of how to keep yourself - and your bank account and savings - protected while meeting people online.
The Risks Privacy Maintain privacy and avoid identity theft or fraud.
If and when you do decide to share an e-mail address think about creating a separate and anonymous email address.
Take Your Time - Sometimes when you're excited about someone, your instincts can be confused by strong feelings.
Don't include your surname or any other identifying information such as your place of work either in your profile or when you first make contact.
