Meet at a Public Place
While dating is a private endeavor, avoid going to a private location on initial dates. Never invite a stranger to your house or agree to visit their lodgings before knowing everything about them. If someone’s forcing you to move to a private location, don’t comply. Meeting in a public place ensures extra safety.
Share Your Itinerary with Friends/Family
Sharing information with someone trustworthy will ensure added safety and prevent any unpleasant situation from taking place. Also, ensure that your smartphone is charged and in-network range at all times.
Be In-Charge of Transportation
While dating is a special experience, the Woo dating app would advise you to be in charge of your transportation needs in the beginning. Download a cab service app and ask a friend to stay available in case your method of transportation fails.
Avoid Leaving Drinks Unattended
When it comes to meeting a match for the first same, users are advised to be alert at all times. Avoid all kinds of pressure (if that is coming from the other end) and choose your comfort over everything else. Stay alert and keep an eye on their behavior so that you can leave if anything unpleasant occurs.
Similarly, never leave your drink unattended. Don’t rely on your date to pour your cocktail or soft drink for you, and take charge. It is also advised to keep personal items like purse, wallet, or other such items, with you at all times.
Trust Your Gut and Leave if You’re Uncomfortable
The Woo dating app believes in the power of meaningful connections and recommends its users to practice the same. If someone you meet for the first time makes you uncomfortable or restless, leave.

You can also ask your friends to be in touch with you in case you feel unsafe.
