“Meet her at a coffee shop”
No doubt you’ve heard the sarcastic phrase thrown around pretty frequently, “Oh, it’s on the Internet, it MUST be true”. While this is a sad statement, it’s true; there’s no guarantee that anyone you’re talking to online is really who they say they are. While the chances that you’re going to get scammed on any legit hookup or dating site is pretty slim, it’s always best to be safe than sorry, don’t you think? Whether it’s you or the girl you’re trying to get with that brings it up, it’s always best to agree on crowded, public locations for the first time or two that the two of you meet up, just until you’re a little more comfortable with each other. Try these suggestions that are safe without totally killing the mood.
Local bars or nightclubs are great places to meet the woman you’ve been chatting up. They’re secluded while still having that casual, hookup-fueling feel. You can buy her a few drinks and talk, and even though you met online, getting to talk at a bar like this will make it feel like a “traditional” hookup, if that’s the sort of feeling you might be looking to evoke. A bar is the better option if you actually want to talk and get to know her, whereas nightclubs are great if you just want a precursor to the act to get you in the mood. Bars and nightclubs are great places to see her show off some dance moves, which might give you an idea of how she’s going to move when she’s in bed with you. Nothing’s wrong with a little sneak peek, right?
“Choose a place where you can sit and talk”
Concerts or festivals are great places to meet your lovely lady, too. Festivals are just crowded enough without being overrun that you can talk to someone you don’t know terribly well without being uncomfortable, but not so overcrowded that you can’t get to know her like you need to. Concerts, while they are a little more crowded, are great first meet-up places. The loud music, feeling of sweaty bodies everywhere moving to the beat and the level of euphoric excitement that being there evokes are going to work the both of you to a fever pitch, guaranteeing that when you do head somewhere to actually do what you came there for, it’s guaranteed to be some great sex!
Renting a hotel room might be in your best interest. It sure beats hooking up in your car, and for those that might have traveled to meet up with their prospective hookups (maybe you both drive and met in the middle) it might be the only comfortable option. At first, many might be hesitant to get a hotel room with someone they hardly know because they think that no one knows they’re there, but any hotel employees will see you both go in there and are obviously going to be a little suspicious if you both don’t come out. Chances are, if someone from a hookup website is trying to scam you, they won’t agree to a hotel room, so you’ll be just fine.
