Online Safety

It's important to us to keep our users safe. LimeMeet strongly recommends you follow these guidelines.

Sharing Personal Information

  • Your home phone number and full name provide easy ways to track who you are and where you live. Armed with just your home phone number, a person can easily gain access to your income information, home address, and even learn the value of your home. Armed with your first and last name, a person can do searches to determine quite a bit of information on you - where you work, what you do, and even what your home phone number is. So in the initial stages of communication, guard your personal information. As far as phone communication, see the next tip.

Meet in a public place.

  • When it's time to schedule that first exciting face-to-face meeting, arrange to meet in a public place and provide your own transportation. Your initial meeting will tell you a lot about the other person, including whether or not he/she lied in their profile. Your gut instincts will kick in. Never accept an offer to be picked up at your house. Make sure that a friend knows where you are at and who you are with.

Listen to your instincts.

  • If something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. And if you haven't met him before, and you know at the beginning of the date that something doesn't feel right, then leave immediately.

Do some research.

  • We recommend that you do your own research about the person before you meet. If you feel that this is not neccessary, PLEASE follow the guidelines we set out for you and most importantly, follow your gut feeling. If something doesn't feel right, go home immediately!

Some more things to remember.

  • When meeting someone for the first time never allow them to pick you up from your home or workplace. Never give personal information out too soon!
  • Use your own mode of transportation to your public meeting place and make sure you have more than enough fuel in your car.
  • Always let someone else know where you are going and who you'll be with. You might even consider arranging a time to call and check in. Or you could arrange to meet up with friends later that night.
