When Meeting in Person
Remember precaution is better than cure. Always take the necessary steps to ensure your safety and follow these tips to help you stay safe:
Get to know the other person before you meet him or her in person
ZoMatch does not conduct criminal background checks on users, so you MUST conduct your own research and due-diligence and take all necessary precaution even after getting to know the other person. It is important that you do not reveal your contact information, address and any other personal information unless you really are comfortable with and truly get to know the other person.
Always meet in public
Beware of anyone who suggests meeting in a secluded or remote place. Always meet in public places that are populated or crowded. Never meet at your or the other person's residence or in a remote, secluded or private location.
Always tell close friend(s) or family member(s) of your meeting plans
Clearly convey to your friend and family members the name and background of who you are meeting, where you you'll be meeting and when you'll be ending that meeting and returning. Never go to such meeting without your phone. You MUST bring your phone with you.
If at all possible, arrange for a meeting someplace which is close by a friend or family member's work or residence location; or have a friend or family member in close vicinity of your meeting.
Make certain that you transport or drive yourself to and from the meeting place
Even if the person offers or volunteers to pick you up, under no circumstances do you want to be picked up or dropped back by the other person. You MUST arrange for your own ride, even if you have to take public transportation or a taxi. Do not get into a vehicle with someone you don't know well or trust 100 percent. Being in control of your own transportation allows you leave whenever you want, and you are not at the mercy of your date.
Meet during daytime and in public places
Arrange for the first few meetings during daytime and in populated or public places.
These tips should help in keeping you safe and your ZoMatch experience enjoyable.
