Online dating danger statistics
"A rape victim is never at fault and we do not want the circumstances in which these assaults take place to cause any victim to doubt that.
Unlike singles in the '70s, who cruised bars and discos and risked looking for love in all the wrong places, tens of millions of singles each day join and log on to online dating sites with the belief that their efforts to find love and companionship are safe and secure.So they recommend meeting in public and staying in public, and to not feel pressured to go home with your date.And if you want to go somewhere more private, make sure you've discussed what's going to happen with your date and you're both aware of any boundaries.The agency says they released the data to make sure people know about the safety risks that come with online dating.
