Online dating is different from what happens when you meet someone organically.

People behave differently when they can hide behind technology.

It is important to see if there is good talking chemistry before meeting in person. If you’re a little nervous about what to text, practice on Meet Me.

On a first date (really first ), you don’t know this guy well enough to trust him with your address. Don’t give him your phone number early on either, because he can use that to find your address.
