Online Dating Site Safety

Online Dating Sites Cracking Down on Sexual Predators

For those of you looking for a fresh dating start this Spring, online dating may be a great way to get out there and meet someone new. And thankfully, it may have got a lot safer to try out Internet matchmaking. Three major online dating companies — Match.com, eHarmony, and Spark Networks — have signed a statement agreeing to screen for sexual predators, give their members online dating safety advice, and simplify the way members report abuse on their sites. Match had already started screening for registered sex offenders last year after a woman filed a lawsuit for being sexually assaulted by someone she met on the site. Even though this new statement isn't binding and doesn't carry any penalties if the sites don't enforce the policies, it's meant to encourage other sites to take online dating safety seriously.

Will these new efforts make you feel more comfortable with online dating? And check out these tips on online dating safety and red flags to watch out for:
