Before I had even considered signing up, I was cautioned about two things regarding online dating. First, you don’t want to wait too long before meeting up. If the person unnecessarily prolongs a meetup, it’s a red flag that he might not be who he says he is. And always meet up for a first date in a public place. Second, beware of scammers, those who supposedly are in love with you and in the next email, ask for money.
