Are dating sites safe?
Reputable online dating sites are safe to use as they protect your details so they remain confidential. You can only contact other members through their messaging systems so your personal contact details will never be revealed unless you give them out yourself. You have control over who you contact and talk to on the sites.
Where online dating can become less safe is when you actually meet someone in real life as there is always a risk. When it comes to meeting someone you should use common sense, always meet in a public place and make sure that a friend or relative knows where you're going to be.
