  • BE CAREFUL AND WATCH YOURSELF AND DON'T TELL ANY OF THEM WHERE YOU LIVE.

  • Find out his real name and do a search on www.womansavers.com and www.dontdatehimgirl.com to make sure he isn't someone you need to stay away from Also run a criminal check on him online at the local county clerk's site. I used to tell guys I met online that my brother is a police officer. I don't really have a brother but it helped screen and keep crazies away.

  • Don't. I won't even go into how disastrous it is for girls to chase guys. Just don't.

  • Be careful. Trust your gut instinct. Don't listen to your "I haven't had a date in a year, I'm soo eager for this" voice, because that is desperate and misleading. Trust your real instinct. Take it slow and truely get to know him before you meet.
