It can go so wrong at times xxI have the same Pete,my best mate always has me on watch and is never far away.If I didnt feel safe I can ring and we have a safety word that I use and he can come get me,Ive only ever had to do it once a few years ago when I was meeting a couple and the man had no respect for any boundaries what so ever, or for his wife for that matter and I was out of there with in 20mins xx
You are such a darling @Wet_CottonMy best friend knows and she would know where I am and who with, her and her hubby would always know where I am.
But things are changing for me now and have met someone wonderful from here. So we spend more time together and I don't need my best friend as much as I used to xxx
Yes was always and only my friend really, but they always knew where I was and they always responded if I ever needed them xx
Sure, we would always tell singlies... especially the ladies, to have something in place.
Always meet in a public place first, easier to leave if the pics they sent were more "20 stone" than "Sharon Stone" lol.
A "bail-out" call maybe about 20 minutes into your meet is a good idea too, someone rings you and you can use it as an "emergency at home" excuse to leave.
And... lastly, always always always leave your "stuff" (wallet, keys, phone etc) somewhere you can see them if things go horizontalsqueakybedsprings... (don't ask!)
