Rahul was super horny! He had been chatting with this guy who had abs of Ranveer Singh and the height of Hritik Roshan. Finally, the day came when Rahul met Rishabh at his place. Rishabh was very much what Rahul expected. He was jaw-dropping good looks and had a body of steel. As the night went on, Rahul and Rishabh got drunk. The next morning, Rahul found himself bleeding from his left nipple. It didn’t take Rahul to understand that he was brutally raped last night and was left on a bench of a park, without his phone and wallet, about 500 meters away from Rishabh’s place. Had Rahul been careful about this hookup, he won’t spend the next 3 days with intense fever.
Flirting on your phone can be fun, but it’s also a lot of work. It takes time and energy to sort through the crowd, to find someone you want to go out with. Along the way, you are certain to face disappointments simply because the process of hooking up with someone on gay dating apps inherently requires sharing personal information with strangers.
Interacting with strangers on gay dating apps can put you at risk. There is a chance you could find yourself in physical danger. No matter what their action is, here’s what you should know and do to ensure a safe, yet fun gay dating experience.
As a precautionary measure, never share indecent/nude pictures before meeting your prospective date. Remember, the chat inside a dating app is the safest place to be in. Until you meet someone, it’s best to chat only within the app. This way, even if the date turns out to be a creep, he won’t have your WhatsApp number to trouble you. Also, he won’t have the power to blackmail you over your nude pics.
Never agree to go to your date’s home for the first meeting. Rather, meet in a public place. At times, you can sense something fishy before going on a date. If this feeling lingers on, tell a friend or family member where you’re going. Also, turn on the GPS of your phone and send the location where you are to your friend/family.
While reaching the place, use your own transportation. This means not allowing your date to pick you up, as this will leave you at the mercy of a complete stranger, who may end up being a jackass. If you don’t have your own car, pick a meeting point you can easily reach by cab. As mentioned before, you must choose a public place to meet your date.
Even if everything looks fine, do not unload loads of personal information on a stranger. If it was a meaningless sexual encounter, it doesn’t make sense to share your personal info with the guy who might end up misusing it.
Be nice if your date doesn’t look like what you expected. Getting mad and walking out is acceptable if the other guy is unassuming. But, if you just met a ‘psycho’, find ways to sweetly escape.
Many gay dating apps allow you to share data from your social profiles. On the surface, it may sound like a good idea, but, it’s often risky. Doing so make can make it easy for the guy who just rejected to find your profile on social networks. After all, your social profile might contain information you don’t want strangers to know about, such as the location of your last snap. So, use your best judgment.
