Step 7: Meet up face-to-face – in a safe public place with a time limit

Tell family and friends about any meeting you are going to have

Take your time in talking about yourself! When you’re excited about meeting someone new, strong feelings can outweigh your instincts. Until you get to know someone, limit how much you tell them about yourself:

  • You could tell them the general region you live in, but not your specific address or phone number.
  • Talk about what industry you work in, but not your exact workplace or how much you earn.
  • Tell them what you enjoy doing with friends and family, but don’t give out their names.
