Here are some simple guidelines YOU can follow to protect your privacy.
- Guard your identity while stablishing contact with an identified prospect
Our system will ensure that your identity is protected until YOU decide to reveal
• Remember that you are in control of your online experience at all times. You can
remain completely anonymous until YOU choose not to.
• Don't include your personal contact information like name, email address, home
address, telephone numbers, place of work or any other identifying information in
your initial messages.
• Don't send contact information until your instincts tell you that this is someone
you can trust. It's okay to take your time.
- Start slow – Use emails initially
Set up a separate email account for communicating. Trust your instincts and start
by sharing only your email address and communicating solely via email.
• Look for odd behavior or inconsistencies. Serious people will respect your space
and allow you to take your time.
• Ask a friend to read the emails you receive - an unbiased observer can spot warning
signs you missed.
• Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal information or attempts
in any way to trick you into revealing it.
• Don't use signature lines in your emails that include your phone numbers and addresses.
• Don't use your regular or official email id for communicating with a person you
don't know well.
- Request for a photo
A photo will give you a good idea of the person's appearance, which may prove helpful
in achieving a gut feeling.
• It’s best to view several images of someone in various settings: casual, formal,
indoor and outdoors. If all you hear are excuses about why you can't see a photo,
consider that he or she has something to hide.
- Chat on the phone
A phone call can reveal much about a person’s communication and social skills. Consider
your security and do not reveal your personal phone number to a stranger.
• Use a pre paid mobile phone number or use local telephone blocking techniques
to prevent your phone number from appearing in Caller ID. Only furnish your phone
number when you feel completely comfortable and have some background information
on the other person.
• If someone gives you a phone number with a strange area code, check it out to
make sure it's not a charge number before you make the call.
- Meet when YOU are ready
The beauty of meeting online is that you can collect information gradually, later
choosing whether to pursue the relationship in the offline world. You never are
obligated to meet anyone. Go at your own pace!
• Remember that you are in control when it comes to taking an online relationship
• Even if you decide to arrange a meeting, you always have the right to change your
mind. It’s possible that your decision to keep the relationship at the anonymous
level is based on a hunch that you can’t logically explain. Trust yourself. Go with
- Meet in a safe place
When you choose to meet offline it is a good idea to try and include either or both
of your families. But if you trust the person enough to meet alone always tell a
friend or your family where you are going and when you will return.
• When you decide to meet face to face with someone for the first time, choose a
public place (such as a restaurant / cafe) at a time when many people are around
and ensure your own transportation to and fro.
• For the first meeting it is always good not to meet the other person alone. Take
a friend or relative along and ask him/her to do the same.
• In case you do decide to meet him/her alone leave the name, address and telephone
number of the person you are going to meet with your friend or family member. Take
a cellular phone along with you.
• Never arrange for your prospective match to pick you up or drop you at home.
• Do not go to a secluded place or a movie alone at the first meeting.
- Watch for warning signs
Watching for warning signs and acting upon it is the surest way to avoid an uncomfortable
• Ask a lot of questions and watch for inconsistencies. This will help you detect
liars & cons, and it will help you find out if you're compatible.
• Pay attention to displays of anger, intense frustration or attempts to pressure
or control you. Acting in a resentful manner, making demeaning or disrespectful
comments, or any physically inappropriate behavior are all warning signs.
• Involve your family or your close friends in your search for a life partner and
do not take a decision unilaterally.
• Don't ignore the following behavior especially if it is without an acceptable
