Tips for Meeting People
As with any service that provides way for people to exchange messages, talk live and meet, none of the members are screened. The people you meet on the system are simply looking to find others with whom they can share their desires. We’d like to offer some advice on meeting, exchanging messages and talking live.
Recording Greetings and Personal Ads
Do not include any personal information in your greetings or personal ads that would allow others to contact you through any means other than your private voice mail on the system. That means no e-mail, home or business addresses. Also, do not broadcast any phone numbers.
Giving out Personal Information, Phone Numbers, Etc.
We recommend not giving out any personal information until you are completely comfortable with the individual(s) with whom you have been corresponding. This is why we provide a private voice mailbox for everyone on the system. Also, you can exchange live messages and have live private, one on one conversation with any member in the chat room without ever having to reveal your phone number.
Meeting in Person
Many members enjoy meeting in person. Years ago one of the original founders of the business actually met his wife through the service. He has some good advice for meeting in person.
Even if you have spoken numerous times with the person you’d like to meet it always best to arrange a brief first meeting. In other words, do not commit to a full blown date. Agree to keep your first meeting brief no matter how amazing you find the other person. This will take the pressure off of both of you. Keep your first meeting to no more than 30 minutes. Meet for coffee in a public location.
When you meet agree beforehand not to put the other person on the spot by asking what they think. Let the chemistry speak for itself. You may find yourself going beyond the 30 minutes agreed upon simply because you both get involved in conversation and are attracted to each other.
Never meet at a person’s home or place that’s not public. Always arrange to meet in a public location during normal business hours. In addition, until you get to know someone well it’s best not to get into their car and go for a drive. This may sound overly cautious but we want everyone to be as safe as possible and use common sense when meeting others. Use common sense and practice safe meeting procedures and enjoy the service.
