How to chat safely on Interactive Male
There really is only one rule:
Exercise common sense
1. Take it slow
Instant connections can be deceiving. If he seems too good to be true, maybe he is. Trust your instincts. If anything makes you uncomfortable, walk away for your own safety and protection.
2. Protect your identity
Interactive Male is always private and confidential and we will NEVER share your personal information with someone else. Only you can make the decision to share your personal information. For your own safety, never give away identifying information. And if you’re feeling pressured by a caller who wants it, stop communicating with him.
3. Meet when YOU are ready
You never have to meet in person with anyone through our service. And even if you decide to arrange a meeting, you always have the right to change your mind. Trust your gut feelings. And if you mutually decide to take your relationship to the next level, be smart and protect yourself. Interactive Male assumes no responsibility for personal meetings.
4. Watch for red flags
Things to watch out for:
- Pressuring you for your contact information
- Asking you for money
- Claiming to be someone who works for Interactive Male (no Interactive Male employees will communicate with you while you are on the system)
- Quick to anger or verbal abuse
5. Meet in a safe place
If you choose to meet, always tell a friend where you are going and when you will return. Leave your date's name and telephone number with your friend. Meet him in a familiar restaurant and refrain from drinking excessively, as it could impair your ability to make good decisions.
6. Do not give out your phone number
Do not give out your phone number unless you are absolutely sure the person you connected with isn’t going to use it in a negative way. The last thing you want is someone you don’t know calling you at home because someone shared your number, or because that person you gave it to wasn’t who you thought they were.
Now that you know how to stay safe, it’s a good time to start chatting with fun, local gay men who are ready and waiting to talk to you.
