The Me Too movement : How to stay safe online

April 29, 2018 No Comments

Social media has come to stay! Meeting people online has become something that happens every day. Over the years, some individuals a have been lucky to meet people online and they become family. Some other people have tried this and it became a nightmare.

The Me Too movement (or “#MeToo”, with local alternatives in other languages) is a movement against sexual harassment and assault which includes adult dating sites. In October 2017, #went viral, as a hashtag used on social media to help in bringing the attention of the public about the widespread of harassment and sexual assault. The phrase was popularized by Alyssa Milano when she encouraged women to tweet about it and “give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem”. This hashtag went viral on Twitter including several high profile celebrities like Ashley Judd, Uma Thurman, and Jennifer Lawrence who joined in the campaign.

I have had the opportunity in discussing with individuals that have successfully found their true love through online dating and here is how the stayed safe all through their journey.

Unsolicited pictures

“If you receive an unsolicited picture, Let the person know you don’t need them nicely and then if they try to be funny, or act weird, report them to the online site and then block them” – Hellen B

“Check every profile that contacts you, in fact, do a research on them to be sure they are humans, the online dating site try their best to keep the place safe but some individual just like get in the way of good things,’’ –Messi

Hellen went on to say that unsolicited picture where one of her night mere, and some individuals go on and send them to you when you don’t even ask for it, this is harassment on every level and need to re[ported asap and then block the individual if they don’t fil bad with their act. I for one also believe I should not be receiving any form of a picture from an individual except, I request for it.

Rude Comment

“I do get rude comment sometimes, some  even go ahead to bully, what I do in most cases; I keep track of every conversation, report them to the site owners and block them. You must learn to block! block! block!’’ -Joan

Safety issues should be taken very seriously to avoid any form of bad situation from happening. As an individual, when dealing with people we don’t know so well, we should limit the kind of information we give out especially personal information’s. For example, personal address, school address, work address, and the list go on.

Try to meet the individual in an open/public space until you feel safe with them.

Do not give your contact information out until you are very comfortable doing so. Do not feel guilty about this no matter the amount of pressure mounted on you.

Make sure to inform a close family member/ close friend of where you are going and who you are meeting.

When you get to your first dating venue, do not forget to update your family and friends

Finally always trust your instinct even when it comes to sex dating site.
