Web Weaving Safety is very important.  It is unwise to blindly meet someone alone first time you meet them off the computer.  Below are some tips to help keep you safe:

  Do not meet someone who you know to be of a questionable nature.
  Get to know the person through E-Mail first for a couple weeks before even thinking of meeting them.
  Talk to the person for about a week on the phone before you even consider meeting them.
  If you meet someone, make sure the first couple of times it is in a public area in the daylight with lots of people around.
  If at all possible, bring a friend.  Tell another friend or family member where you are going.
  Do not plan the first meeting to be very long, maybe an hour, but if at all possible do not make it longer.
  Above all, use COMMON SENSE.
