Vibeline Safety Tips
Vibeline is your link to local people looking to chat and make connections. If you connect with someone on the chatline and things are heating up, you may want to take it further and meet in person. Please consider the following tips to keep your experience to keep it sexy and safe.
Meet when YOU are ready
At Vibeline, we never want you to feel rushed or pressured into anything. You never have to meet anyone in person, especially if you are enjoying chatting. If you do decide to meet in person we urge you to be smart and meet in a public place. Trust your gut and put on the breaks or stop contact. Vibeline assumes no responsibility for personal meetings.
Guard your identity
Vibeline is always private, giving you a safe space to let go of worries and explore all of your most erotic desires. The Vibeline system is confidential and ensures your true identity is protected until you decide to reveal it. Never include your last name, email address, home address, phone number, place of work or any other identifying information in your personal greetings or messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.
Check them out before you meet
Vibeline values your privacy above all else, which means we do not do background checks on users. Take all the time you need to build the trust needed to go to the next step. Ask questions, and most importantly, use common sense. If you encounter anyone who seems to be underage, please alert the Customer Service team.
Watch out for any of the following signs someone is not telling you the truth:
- Inconsistent information about age, interests, appearance, marital status, profession, employment, etc.
- Failing to give direct answers to direct questions.
Look out for red flags
Red flags come in all forms – displays of anger, overt pressure, passive-aggressive behavior, demeaning remarks, disrespectful comments or any physically inappropriate behavior. There is no reason you should ever have to put up with any of these. If you see any of these flags, stop contact and block or report the person.
Meet in a safe, public place
If you decide to meet in person, let a friend in on your plans - when and where you will be meeting, your date's name and contact information and when you expect to return. Meet in a public place, preferably somewhere busy like a familiar coffee shop or restaurant. Use your own transportation, so you can determine when you come and go. And avoid excessive alcohol from dulling your best judgement, and pleasure.
Out of town meetings
If you choose to meet a date in a different city, make your own car and hotel arrangements. No need to disclose the name of the hotel you’re staying in until you are feeling more comfortable with the person. Choose a public place for the first meeting, which is different from your hotel. Let a friend in on your plans and carry your phone with you at all times.
Trust your instincts
Your gut feeling is your best safety gauge. If something feels "off" to you, it probably is. Take it as a valid signal and step back, change your plans to something more comfortable, or end contact. If you are unsure, excuse yourself, call a friend or just leave. You do not owe anyone anything. At any point you can change your mind. Fun can be safe too!
Getting yourself out of a jam
Never push yourself to do anything that feels uncomfortable or unsafe. Feeling unsure? Step back and use your common sense. Excuse yourself, call a friend or ask someone nearby to help you, or just leave. You don't own anyone an explanation. There is no embarrassment in feeling uncomfortable. Your safety is more important than a person's opinion of you.
If you choose to take your conversation to sexy places and it starts feeling too fast, say so. You are not obligated to do (or say) anything you do not want to do. If you decide to meet a member in person, make sure you get clear consent from your date and always enjoy your fun safely!
