Avoid Internet Weirdos

So I got into a conversation about this with my friend and she said she was afraid to use dating apps and the like because she was afraid of being tricked.
Well, here are some tips if you want to test the legitimacy of an online stranger:

  • Keep note of every detail the person gives, no matter how small. Later you can ask them about it. They probably won't remember and contradict themselves
  • Don't be afraid to demand proof. If someone downright refuses to give the same information/photos they expect of you, don't trust them.
  • Don't give your location, or full name, of where you go to school or work. Be vague.
  • If you want to meet up, do it somewhere with many people and ask friends to 'spy' on you and blend into the crowd while keeping an eye on you.
  • Don't feel bad about saying no, or blocking someone. They'll get over it.
  • Don't. Send. Nudes. You have no idea where it might end up.
  • Be safe and trust your gut, always!
