   Creating Your Profile

Protect your identity and personal information.

Be Anonymous

Don't include your last name or any other identifying information such as your place of work in your profile or initial communications.

Don't Use Contact Information

Don't include your contact information such as your email address, home address, or phone number in your profile or initial communications.

Protect Your Password

Use caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others can't view or record your password or personal information.



Connecting Online

Get to know people and evaluate your relationships.


 Communicate through 

  • Act with caution and learn more about someone and evaluate the relationship before contacting him or her outside of Dating Target on the phone or through your personal email or social media accounts. Also, consider using an anonymous email address for contacting people outside of Dating Target.


  •   Take Your Time

    Sometimes when you're excited about someone, your instincts can be confused by strong feelings. Take your time to get to know someone before sharing your full identity or personal information.


  •  Do Your Own Research

  • Don't get a false sense of security because you're on a dating site; do your own research to learn more about someone and make informed decisions before you meet. Check to see if the person you're interested in is on other social networking sites like Facebook, do a web search to see if there are other records of the person online, and use government resources that are publicly available and paid services.


  •  Never Send Money

    There is no reason for anyone to ask you for money or your financial information. Always keep your bank and account information private.


  •  Report Suspicious Behavior

    Use sound judgment and report suspicious members and anyone you see violating Dating Target's Terms of Use.
