Meet New People in a Safe and Fun Way
It works like this.
You see a photo of someone nearby who, like you, is looking to meet up with other singles. They look good, so you check out the profile - Okay! A few good pictures and some more information about themselves. Interesting. So you send this person a chat message. Maybe a simple, "Hey" or "Hello." You haven't given up your name, phone number, or location. And when you two get to chatting? You're able to break the ice, find out a little more about each other, ease into talking about what you're both looking for.
If it turns out that you're both looking for the same thing? You can trade numbers. Talk on the phone. And possibly meet up.
