Although online dating has made finding someone to go on a date with far easier, it should be remembered that just because you met someone online, it does not mean that you really know them, not until after your first date at least.
This means that just like a date you may have found in a bar somewhere, your online date could be anybody.
Being cautious does not have to mean leaving out any possibility of having fun; it just means that you should let someone know where you are meeting the date, what you know about them and what time you expect to reach back home.
If you want to extra cautious, you can even have that same person call you about half an hour into your date.
If by that time you know the date is OK, you can either say so or pretend it is a wrong number but always answer your friend’s call.
If however you are already convinced that you made a mistake, you can use the call as a pretext to return home, either way your friend will know what is going on and how you stand.
There are of course dating sites which specialize in introducing people for the express purpose of having sex and so if that is not your intention you should avoid these sites.
Sites like though, are especially there for people that want to find lasting relationships and so that is what most of their members have joined for and when you search review you will see that approximately 160 members find it every day.

It is easy to join and although some have said it is a bit pricey, it only is if you join for periods of only one month, by joining for more months at a time you can reduce the cost by as much as 56%, making it more of a competitive price.
Judging from the many reviews there are on Match.com, it is popular with its members who are for the most part, happy with the site however, there has been one criticism and that is the billing system could be improved.
Although this may be a minor criticism, you think since is the oldest dating site in the UK and has now been around for at least 17 years, it could have sorted its billing system out by now.
Anyway, using any dating site can making finding future dates far easier than the traditional way of going from bar to bar looking for one.
