A date is a planned activity that allows a young man and a young woman to get to know each other better.
Sure, dating can be awkward and it's easy to fall back on a little social lubrication to keep conversation flowing easier — but is it really worth it?
"Guard your personal contact information on any dating or social networking site," Says Dr. Deibler, a psychologist at The Center for Emotional Health of Greater Philadelphia, LLC.
We don't want to believe that someone we're on a date with will slip us any drugs, but it does happen.
Don't accept a drink from your date unless you open it yourself or watch it being prepared by a bartender.
"If using an online dating website, you can choose to have the individual respond to the site, rather than your email address, or you can set up an email address specifically for this purpose.' If you can, go out with at least one other friend — that way, you can keep on eye on each other in case someone is slipped a date rape drug or appears to be drinking too much.
It's also a great way to get a second opinion if you are getting bad vibes from a date.Invite your parents to become acquainted with those you date.Choose to date only those who have high moral standards and in whose company you can maintain your standards.The Internet is a wonderful product of the new age of technology, but without proper precautions and monitoring it can be a dangerous place for children and adolescents.Of course no one can protect their children from everything or foresee all the possible dangers they may face, but with a little child safety planning and a lot of love we can protect them from a lot. Go only to places where you can maintain your standards and remain close to the Spirit.
