Safe Dating

Tips to stay safe/safe dating

Double date or go out with groups of friends (on the first several dates)

Decide what your boundaries are about being sexual. Be firm and clear about your boundaries.

Trust your instincts and feelings. If you are uncomfortable, leave the situation and go to a safe place.

Be careful if your date holds strong gender stereotypes.

Don’t put down a drink and leave it, and don’t accept drinks from someone you don’t know. Remember that dating sexual abuse and date rape is committed by people you know, so it is best to accept drinks that have not been opened.

Don’t drink alcohol. The majority of date rapes happen when someone has been drinking.
