insecure to meet upWatch
You need to meet in person to find out what someone is really like.
How someone is online can be very different to how they are in real life. That includes photos and how they actually look.
The whole idea of online meetings is to arrange real life meetings with a greater number of potential romantic partners than you might do otherwise.
Don't give them any overly personal info up front, such as your address.
Arrange to meet in a busy public place. Expect a fairly high proportion of people you meet online to stand you up.
The best way for you to get secure is to face down your fears and to start meeting people. As long as you stick to no upfront info that a stalker could use and you meet in a public place, nothing bad can happen to you from the initial meeting.
Yeah but at least you’ll know they will respect your decision instead of persistent. It’s scary ofc but you can always prepare your mindset and day for it instead of meeting up eventually. Wdym put yourself in a position to get hurt?
