The world of dating is usually full of surprises. You can never be 100% sure of what you are going to get especially in online dating. The dating world becomes even more complicated when you step into other aspects of it like BDSM dating for example. It is important to remember to stay safe and not take anything for granted especially while exploring online dating sites dedicated to BDSM relationships.
Here are some tips to help you stay safe in the dating world of BDSM –
Tell a friend
Always let at least 1 person know when you are meeting someone new. Never go on a date with someone you have just met without telling anyone. You need to let a close friend know who you are meeting, where you are meeting and how long you are planning to spend there. Your friend could arrange to pick you up or call you in the middle of the date just to ensure all is well and you don’t need to escape. I have heard many horror dating stories in the past, so I know how important this tip is. Remember to tell a friend.
You need to ensure you communicate with your date. There’s no need to be shy about what you want and don’t want. It is best to lay all your cards on the table so your date is sure of your boundaries and needs. You also need to be sure you are comfortable with their boundaries and needs. If you are both looking to go into BDSM role play like being a Mistress or a Dominant for example, it is important to understand and be comfortable with the roles you will both be playing. To avoid any misunderstanding, keep the communication lines open and talk before you dive into it. There are many freaks and bullies hiding behind BDSM. Good communication will help you spot them quickly before you go too far.
Join a BDSM Dating Website
Signing up to a BDSM dating website will allow you to explore the world of submissive and dominant dating safely. Many good dating websites will ensure their platforms are safe and all their members feel secure. Joining a BDSM dating website also allows you to chat with others with the same interests. For instance, if you are looking at playing the role of a Mistress, you could have a mistress chat with others to find out what to expect when playing the role of a Mistress to ensure this is the right role for you. A BDSM dating website gives you a community of experienced Mistresses & Masters to choose from, and it could mean you find the perfect match sooner rather than later.
Meet in public
It is better to meet your date for the first time in public. Never invite someone you are just meeting to your home and don’t go to theirs either. Meet in public for the first date and save all the kinky stuff for when next you meet.
