Cafés are especially good as your date can be as short or long as you want depending on how well you get on. Don’t get picked up from your house as you are giving away really private information before you’ve even met.

Meeting and building quick rapport is so easy online and lately I’ve noticed that women all too often let their guard down, lose their common sense or abandon their self protection to a total stranger.

Reflecting back to when I was single and looking after my divorce, I’m shocked at how easily a woman WHO I DID NOT KNOW would invite me to her home (having never met me before) after a few chats via phone/email/text.

It was kinda easy to WOO and WOW women on the phone and they not only thought me safe, they felt an almost unique connection with me.

• If someone makes a declaration of love before you’ve met, be wary.

• Requests for money or financial assistance are not acceptable.

• If someone is genuinely interested in you, this will naturally develop into a decision to meet up.

If you have been in contact with someone for a long time and they haven’t suggested a face-to-face meeting then consider ceasing contact with them.

Meeting your date for the first time is really exciting, but it’s important to stay safe when meeting someone new.
