  1. Keep your information private

Be cyber secure & cyber savvy. If you think that the person you’ve met on a lds dating site hasn’t googled searched or will google you soon, you’re fooling yourself. The person will more than likely do a thorough internet search trying to find as much information about you as possible. It is important that you keep your online information private and limited. You wouldn’t want the person you just met online thirty minutes ago to show up at your doorsteps late at night with kitchenware items. That would be creepy! NOT CUTE! This is a perfect way of keeping safe. Once you have met the person at your local ward, coffee shop or restaurant and after many dates, then you can open up little by little. But till then, keep private. Putting your entire business out there online for the world to see should be handled with caution so be careful and have fun.
