If you have found yourself a date who also believes in “no strings attached” just the same as you, your life has just become easier. However, you also need to make sure of your safety while you are getting involved with a person you barely know. Dating apps provide an easy medium to find singles who are willing to hook up without expecting any commitments. While there are enough excitement and enthusiasm to get going with this date, there is also a chance of making mistakes. In order to protect your identity and safety, here are some mistakes to avoid when dating or hooking up with a stranger.
If you are trying to get straight to the point, chances are you might miss a lot of important things to know about the person. It is suggested that you take time to learn about the person, their likes, dislikes, and especially their thoughts about sex. You do not want to regret your decisions later because you discover something about your date that you could have discovered before. While doing so, also make sure that you tell your date about your likes, limits, safeword, etc.
Not interacting much with your partner on meeting them can make the situation awkward for both of you really quick. When you both know the purpose of meeting up is hookup, that is not the thing that you should focus on from the beginning. Instead, you can spend some beginning time interacting with each other and getting comfortable.
Forgetting to inform someone
Before you go out to meet your date, it is important that someone else also knows about it except you both. For your safety, especially when you are a woman, you should give a heads up to a friend or someone close who can make quick decisions if your whereabouts the blurry. You can also send them the contact details of your date and share your location so that they can check with your partner if your phone is not reachable or can track you for emergencies.
While it is an elementary education to always carry protection in situations like these, people forget to do so. It goes without saying that you need to always keep one or more protection with you, irrespective of whether you are a man or woman. Also, do not hesitate to ask your partner to disclose any STDs they are suffering from so you can protect yourself. Sometimes, things may not go as planned, and you may get caught up in the moment. In case you forget to bring your protection, do not forget to talk to your doctor the next day.
