There are many options out there and potentially complications if you don't think about safety before meeting someone in person for the first time.

Get To Know Him First Ask as many detailed questions as possible before committing to meet.

Sometimes the person on the other end of the computer may not be who they say they are. If you see any warning signs or just have a bad feeling about the situation, trust your instincts and stop chatting.

Ask him to email pictures other than the ones in his profile.

Get as many details about the picture as possible, including the dates they was taken.

Save the picture in an accessible folder on your computer.

Listen For Details You can tell a lot about a person by the way they communicate.
