Livelinks Chatline Safety Tips
Live Chat Dating Safety
Livelinks Chatline is a way for local singles to easily connect and date. If you hit it off with someone and it turns into more, or if you want to meet in person, please take the following safety measures into consideration to make sure your experience stays positive.
We know that new connections can be intense, and we want you to enjoy them in the best way. Have conversations to get to know someone before meeting them in person. Pay attention to any inconsistencies or odd behavior. Know that you can cut off contact at any time. If it was hot and heavy, but you suddenly feel uncomfortable, you don't have to keep talking or meet up. Remember, it's always your choice.
Protect your Identity
Livelinks Chatline is private and confidential. There are no photos, questionnaires, or any searchable information about our callers online. You do not have to give any identifying information to another caller until you are completely comfortable doing so.
You Call the Shots
You do not have to meet anyone in person. It's entirely up to you, and if you do decide to meet, you can change your mind or cut off contact at any time. Livelinks Chatline assumes no responsibility for personal meetings, but we urge you to be smart and meet in public places.
Check their Background
Livelinks Chatline guarantees privacy. That's why we don't conduct background checks on our members. We encourage you to make sure someone is legit by asking questions, doing an internet search, and using your common sense. If you encounter someone underage, please alert our Customer Service Team immediately.
Watch for Red Flags
Displays of anger, intense frustration, pressure, passive-aggressiveness, demeaning or disrespectful comments and physically inappropriate behavior are all examples of red flags. These things are not acceptable and should not be tolerated or encouraged.
Meet in a Safe Place
If you choose to meet, always tell a friend where you are going and when you plan to return. Leave your date's name and number with your friend. Choose a central, public meeting place, and make sure you have your own means of transportation to and from the location. Have fun, enjoy the buzz (of the date), but don't drink excessively.
If you go to a different city to meet up with someone, make your own arrangements for your car and hotel room and do not disclose the name of your hotel. Pick a public location to meet, and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way. Carry a mobile phone and let a friend or family member know of your plans.
Your Feelings are Your Best Indicator
If you feel something is off in your gut, take a step back, change your plans or end contact entirely. If at any time you feel unsure or unsafe, excuse yourself and call a friend to pick you up, or just leave. You do not owe anyone anything and are always allowed to change your mind. Your safety or feeling of safety should never be compromised, so be safe, loves!
