How to Chat Safely with Livelinks
Livelinks is a safe, private and discreet way to have great conversations, make new friends, and meet new people in your local area. There are no paid operators, just real people like you. Here are some tips of how to have a great time with Livelinks, safely.
The first rule of how to meet people safely: Start slowly
Even if you feel like you’ve made an instant, genuine connection, you ought to take common-sense precautions: look for odd behavior or inconsistencies. It's better to spend some time trying to get to know someone better on the phone before you meet in person. If you feel uncomfortable or that the person is not being honest with you, you can easily break off contact.
Livelinks is private and discreet: Protect your identity
Livelinks is always private and confidential. There are no photos, no questionnaires, and no searching information online. That's what makes it a safer option than meeting online or meeting someone in a club or bar. Don’t give away identifying information until you're entirely comfortable, and don't give in to pressure if someone seems to be trying to trick you into revealing that information.
You are in control: Meet when YOU are ready
You never have to meet in person with anyone you find on Livelinks. And even if you decide to arrange a meeting, you always have the right to change your mind. Trust your instincts. If you mutually decide to take your relationship to the next level, be smart and protect yourself. Livelinks assumes no responsibility for personal meetings.
Check their background
Privacy is of the highest importance at Livelinks. That's why we don't conduct background checks on our members. We encourage you to do your own research prior to meeting. Ask questions. Do an Internet search. Use common sense and trust your instincts. If you encounter someone underage, please be responsible and alert our customer service team.
Watch for red flags
Pay attention to displays of anger, intense frustration or attempts to pressure or control you. Acting in a passive-aggressive manner, making demeaning or disrespectful comments or any physically inappropriate behavior are all red flags.
Meet in a safe place
If you choose to meet, always tell a friend where you are going and when you will return. Leave your date's name and telephone number with your friend. Never arrange for your date to pick you up at home. Provide your own transportation, meet in a public place at a time with many people around (a familiar restaurant or coffee shop is often a good choice). Refrain from drinking excessively, as it could impair your ability to make good decisions. If at some point you and your date decide to move to another location, consider taking your own car.
Take extra precautions away from home
If you are flying in from another city, arrange for your own car and hotel room. Do not disclose the name of your hotel and never allow your date to make the arrangements for you. Call your date from the hotel or meet at the location you have already agreed to. If the location seems inappropriate or unsafe, trust your instincts. Always make sure a friend or family member knows your plans and has your contact information. And if possible, carry a mobile phone at all times.
Never do anything that makes you feel unsure or unsafe
Use your best judgment to diffuse the situation and get out of there. Excuse yourself to call a friend for advice, ask someone else on the scene for help or just leave. Never worry or feel embarrassed about your behavior; your safety is much more important than one person's opinion of you.
