It's a good policy to bring your cell phone along, if you have one, and to leave your date's phone number with your parents, just in case anything goes wrong.
Trust your gut, and don't be afraid to say no and call it a night. Even if your partner is charming and sweet at first, look out for signs of abusive relationships, such as:• isolating you from friends and family• having angry outbursts• blaming others for problems• threatening to hurt you during arguments• getting extremely jealous for no reason• acting cruel toward animals or children• trying to control you by belittling your values or ideas.
Getting out of the house for dates is always a good goal, especially if it's your first date with somebody.
Not only is it safer to hang out in a public place such as a restaurant, movie theater or coffee shop, it's fun to discover new places with someone else.
They can make you take risks you wouldn't usually take with your body, your car and your safety in general.
They also prevent you from getting to know what your date is really like and keep your date from getting to know the real you.
