Please be sure to read our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Treat each other with respect and kindness. In order to foster the positive mission and goals of the Buyadate.org Sites and Services, Buyadate.org requires that all members, buyers and sellers, have good hearted intentions for any dates or time arranged through any Site or Service, and to follow the golden rule. All members should treat each other with respect.

Help us to monitor members who may be under age. If you are not absolutely certain that another member is 18 or older, report your concern to us immediately, along with any relevant information. Protect yourself by requesting legal identification if you've purchased a date and you are not absolutely certain that the member is 18 or older. Stay on the right side of the law, and help keep dates safe and legal.


Personal Safety: Prior to accepting and Preparing for a date

Be wise in arranging first dates with anyone. Spend as much time communicating electronically as is necessary for you to feel comfortable enough to actually meet a potential seller or buyer.

Ask for a photo. A picture is worth a dozen clues about a person. If the person you're talking to won't send you one, it may be a sign not to agree to a date. Seek out and consider all available information about an individual. Some states and local municipalities maintain publicly-available information. Our Member Resources section offers additional options to assist you with date safety negotiations. For example, you may require a background check, a security package, or even use an date/event planner, if you prefer.

Take it slowly. Don't let anyone pressure you into a date. Get to know the person online first, then on the phone or by video sharing. If it doesn't feel right, say thanks and skip it.

Phone before you accept a date: The phone gives you the best blend of anonymity, privacy, and "social presence" (meaning you may be able get a better sense of what the other person is like). Use whatever privacy features your phone offers to keep your number safe. If you decide to meet, then...

Meet publicly. If you choose to accept a date, then meeting in a well-populated, public venue (like a coffee shop) is usually a smart option. Don't agree to meet anywhere isolated, unfamiliar, or uncomfortable for you.

Trust your instincts. When it comes to the date, you have to be responsible for your own safety. Err on the side of caution. Treat your date just as you would any other first date. Use common sense and good judgment. It is better to refund the payment for your date than to continue on a date that doesn't feel right to you.

Use your own transportation. Don't rely on your date for transportation. If things aren't going well, it is easier for you to leave if you have your own way home. If you aren't driving, make sure you have enough cash in your pocket for a cab ride, or arrange for a friend to pick you up at a designated time and place.

Bring your mobile phone with you, and to let others know where you'll be. Tell someone your plans. As soon as you have concrete plans, tell your best friend or a family member exactly where you'll be.
