We hope that what starts as a crush or missed connection on TransitCrush.com, transforms into true love in real life. This is the main reason why we created this service. We also know that for this to take place, people will need to meet their crush in person.
Before meeting with a TransitCrush member in person for the first time, make sure you are comfortable with them. It is important to spend time and get to know the other person. Start by using our ‘conversation’ feature to communicate with them. Once you are comfortable doing that, move onto phone conversations. Make sure to only send your contact information via a private conversation. Do not use a post to communicate personal information – anything listed there is visible to the general public.
When you are finally ready to meet in person, just follow the tips below to make it a fun and safe experience.
- Meet in a public place. It is best to meet during the day and in a place where there are many people around. These include shopping malls, movie theaters, public parks and restaurants.
- Make sure to tell a friend or family member where you are going. Let them know the location, time and the name and phone number of the person you are meeting.
- Take your phone with you in case of any emergencies.
- Avoid giving details about where you live and work. It is best not to share personal information on the first date.
- Ask a friend or family member to discretely call you half an hour into your date to check up on you.
- Avoid drinking alcohol. You do not want to impair your judgment when you are on a date with someone you don’t know very well.
- Always follow your instincts. If something feels off or you are uncomfortable at any time, do not hesitate to end the date early.
- Never agree to be picked up from your home or work. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date.
- Test how the other person reacts if you decide to bring a friend with you during first meeting. If they don’t protest and pass your test, you can always tell them your friend got busy.
