It’s important that you don’t go anywhere private with them until you’ve got to know them better.
If your date pressures you to go somewhere private with them end the date and leave immediately.
It all comes down to the kind of person you want to meet.
It's about giving yourself the best and most comfortable way of finding them - a way that works for you and your lifestyle.
If your children do come up in conversation with someone you’ve recently met online make sure you are careful about what you share – remember if you feel uncomfortable about anyone you meet online it’s best to move on.
