Singles who are looking for a partner online are frighteningly willing to take risks, especially women. In an international survey of approximately 14,500 online daters in Australia, USA and Europe, close to 30% of all men and women said that they had already met up with someone who they met on the Internet in a non-public place. The majority of the women surveyed have even organised a blind date with someone they met in their own home.
Experts on online dating warn: Choose a public location for your first date! However, this rule isn’t being taken seriously especially by single women. A woman from New Zealand showed just how dangerous it is to meet up with an acquaintance in private. She met with her Tinder date in his apartment and died there under tragic circumstances.
For such reasons, there are many organised blind date parties available for singles, which allow for the first date with an Internet acquaintance in a safe environment. Even more surprising are the survey results found by datingsitesreviews.com.au: Almost a third (29.8%) of Australian singles, including the majority of women, met their blind date partner in seclusion.
“For many singles, a sense of security is established if nothing has happened so far,” says Henning Wiechers of datingsitesreviews.com.au. “At the least, one should arrange that a friend texts you to minimise the risk, especially women.”
