Using Good Sense
How many of you remember your mom telling you to use common sense? I
sometimes wondered where the reference book was located in the library
for “common sense”.
Since “common sense” seems to be different to all people depending on
who they are and where they are, I thought I would spell it out just as
if you were my kids.
My “common sense” has been acquired by 64 years of experience.
After twenty years working with men and women with AlaskaMen and prior
to that my 28 years working with day care children, foster children,
foster teens and my own always enlightening family I feel
qualified to write the book so that I can pass it all on to you.
mail your driver’s license to anyone because it has your photo on it.
Trying to obligate someone into writing back to you cause they have to
send back the I.D. is not smart. Protect your privacy; we are living in
an age of identity theft and all manner of bad people.
lie about any of your information, especially marital status, age, hair,
height, profession, being incarcerated, financial and education
background. People do get upset when they find out the truth.
use anyone else’s photos for your profile.
post information in your profile or give out that would make you at
especially careful of giving anyone any of your personal information.
Feeling ready to communicate?
feel like you have gotten to know each other well by email, you might
want to talk in person. All I can say in order to cover that is not
allow your phone to come up in the caller ID. Check with your phone
manual on that.
might want to make sure that callers won’t get through to you unless
they unblock the caller I.D. I know this is contradictive, but that is
where your own decision factor comes in. Communication is always an
be sure you use the double blind email we provide on our site, it
protects your privacy. You might want to set up a dedicated separate
email rather than your own personal email that you use exclusively for
10. You might want to use a PO Box for mailing via the
11. Don’t send anything you won’t miss if you never get
12. If you feel uneasy about anything, think about it. It
might be your inner “common sense” trying to tell you something. You
just have to go over everything until you spot what it is. You can
always go back and say, I felt great until… that will give you a clue
where to start. I usually suggest a list of things I’ve noted that are
Ok and Not OK. Most people have a tendency to ignore minor Not Ok
things, which is ok unless you find out that they all add up to a Big NO
13. SEXY? Suggestive or off color messages are better
left unsaid, same on dirty jokes. Sexy names and double meaning names:
TACKY! People judge you by your handle. Most times it is a turn off not
a turn on.
When you Plan to
A first meeting with any new love interest can be exciting - and most
first meetings are perfectly safe, but it's always smart to take basic
precautions. Trust your instincts. And be sure to keep the following
guidelines in mind:
1. DO NOT HAVE THEM PICK YOU UP AT YOUR HOME! KEEP YOUR
RESIDENCE PRIVATE! No excuses, no, no, no to them all.
2. Keep meetings in a public place, not a private home, remove location
or hotel. Coffee houses or restaurants are good. Have some identifying
way of picking the person out in the crowd. What color clothing, or even
better their photo. If you don’t like the way things look, you can
always call from your cell phone and cancel without embarrassing each
Its ok to tell the date you have a friend meeting you too or that you
have another appointment in case it isn’t working out. Be sure to tell a
friend, make sure they know when and where, when you will be back and
perhaps a prearranged call they call you or you call them. My mother
always told me… bring a friend along.
feel pressured in any way, end the meeting and leave at once. This is
not someone who cares about YOU! No matter how much they say they are
“taken” with you or love at first site, soul mate or what ever.
4. TAKE YOUR CELL!!! Learn how to set your cell phone on speed dial for
either 911 or your emergency number.
5. Stick to soft drinks, coffee, or ice tea. People tend to judge you by
what you do on that first casual meeting. Also, it’s easier to make good
decisions and keeps you from being vulnerable or at risk. Remember the
old country western song how much “better” someone gets the more you
6. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PERSONAL BELONGINGS OR DRINKS UNATTENDED. TAKE
RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, SOMEONE PLACING ITEMS IN
YOUR BELONGINGS OR RISK HAVING SOMEONE PLACE DRUGS IN YOUR DRINK. If you
must leave your drink unattended to go to the restroom, order another
drink when you return or don’t drink it.
7. If you need to, stop at the entry and ask the person in charge to
delay the person or to call for their security person. Watch that your
are not followed, especially if the parking place is dark or if you feel
uneasy. If you are followed to where you parked your car, stop and hail
a taxi or go into another public place to use the telephone to phone a
friend. The newer cars have emergency buttons on their click opener that
will start the lights flashing and horn beeping. You can always come
back later with your friend to get your car.
Ok! You survived all of that and it went good, you want to meet again.
Once you have all the safety down it will become routine. Most of these
“common sense” ideas are good for every day use in personal and business
matters. On any other meetings and on follow up dates if the person is
genuine, sincere and truly interested in you, they will want you to feel
to Alaska or planning to meet elsewhere that is long distance?
Before you plan
anything please read over all the items 1-7.
9. Do stay at a credited B&B or hotel. NEVER STAY AT THE
OTHER PERSON’S HOME ON YOUR FIRST VISIT. If you can't afford it, don't
go. It’s just not good sense. Don’t tell where you are staying until you
are completely certain you feel safe.
10. Arrange to meet at the baggage area, airport
restaurant or lobby and then use a taxi or rent a car and go alone to
your hotel. It shows that the other person is polite and interested when
they want to greet you at the airport and that is great! But they will
understand your own self protection that you DO NOT get into a personal
vehicle with someone you are meeting for the first time.
Listen to what they are saying to you,
"If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
If they seem to be hiding something put a red flag by that in your mind.
Some people are very private or may have had a bad experience
themselves, just remember sharing info is part of progression. If they
continually answer questions with questions that may be a red flag.
12. We have all seen so many romantic movies that we seem
to want to jump into love, please proceed with caution. If it is real
love it isn’t going away, it will grow and so will respect with general
caution. People also get scared or hold back if someone seems to be
going To Fast, To soon.
13. Money, having it or not having it. Beware of someone who is bragging
about what they have, or how broke they are. Usually people who brag are
people who need to feel important or are not confident of themselves.
Previous marriage debts, being laid off or being taken for all their
money are indicators. In themselves they are things that happen but
someone who has that going on all the time may have that continue on in
the future too.
14. If anyone asks you for money, (especially if they are
incarcerated), or airline tickets, or to pay bills, or to make donations
or to give them your credit card information for any reason, DO NOT DO
IT! I SHOULDN’T EVEN HAVE TO SAY THAT!
15. Do not allow anyone to take over your life. Whether
you are a man or a woman you need to
decide whether you want someone else making all your decisions.
help us help you and others. If you know anyone who is or has been:
harassing others, is abusive, is lying about their profile information,
or is inappropriate for our website, who is currently married, or is a
minor, is an endangerment to others, sending harassing or abusive
emails, sending spam, links to other sites or
for interviews, photo opportunities, invitations to other sites or for
modeling, for being in movies or that they want to write a book about
to sell services or products or requests for anything please contact us.
This doesn’t mean getting even with your “ex” by sending us condemning
emails about them. I understand that revenge and spitefulness feeds
Karma, so enough said on that.
am sure most of you know all these things, but I feel better just having
them there for you to review in your own mind.
I am sure some of you will come up with your own ideas too. Sometime
you might even want to pass this kind of information on to your own
children, friends or other loved ones. They might think it is naggy, but
that is what we do when we love people, it shows that you care about
