In order to minimize your chances of becoming a victim, please follow these safety tips when dating:

  • Do not let alcohol or other drugs decrease or interfere with your ability to take care of yourself and make sensible decisions.
  • Do not accept beverages from someone you don't know and trust. Always watch your drink and never leave it unattended, at any time.
  • Follow your instincts. If a place or the way your date acts makes you nervous or uneasy, get out. If you need to call a friend to escort you home, don't hesitate to do so.
  • Check out a first date or a blind date with friends. Meet in and go to public places. Don't leave a social event with someone you have just met or don't know well.
  • When attending a social gathering with friends, when they leave, you leave with them.
