Safety Features

There are many ways provides you with a safe online experience.

  • Private Mailbox: You can communicate anonymously via your private Cafe email box.
  • Hide Location: You can hide your city on your profile if you wish. To do so, see the Site Preferences table in your Account Settings page, which is accessible via your Profile.
  • Filtering Technology: We have technology in place that weeds out fraudulent profiles. It's quite good and we are constantly retooling it to provide you the best possible environment.
  • Mailblock: You can apply a mailblock on any member so that they can no longer communicate with you. To do so, view the member's profile and click the 'Apply Mailblock' button. You can also do this via any opened message you receive from another member.
  • Username Change: If your username reveals personal information, such as your last name, you can change your username in your Account Settings page, which is accessible via your Profile. Alternately you can write to us and ask us to change your username to one you suggest.

Protect Yourself

While using, there are things you can do to keep your account secure.

  • Keep your Password Secure: Don't divulge your password to anyone. Secondly, if you access from a shared computer (shared with roommates, or a public computer such as at a library) do not save your login.
  • Sign Out: Use the Sign Out option at the top of your account when you are finished using your account or when you leave a shared computer unattended.
It is your responsibility to take the time to ensure the person you are corresponding with is trustworthy. Agree to chat outside our website with another member only when you are ready. We recommend keeping all conversations inside the site for about 1 week with any new person. Each time you chat with a new person, make that your starting point for 1 week of getting to know them. If the person you're chatting to can't wait that long, it probably says something about what how much they value a relationship.

The following tips will help you retain your privacy and safety when meeting others via our site.

  • Take Your Time: There is no need to rush into a relationship with the first profile you view on the Cafe. Having a secure, stable relationship should be important to you and the person with whom you are corresponding. Never give out your email address, phone number, IM information, full name, work information or any other contact information to a complete stranger. If the other person is really serious about starting a healthy relationship with you, s/he will respect your desire for safety and your commitment to developing a healthy relationship.
  • Correspond on the Cafe to Start: Keep your correspondence on site (use your mailbox or instant messaging) and get to know someone over a period of at least a week (see our notice above). This should give you a bit more time to determine if they are honest, if their behaviour is consistent and whether this person is someone you would like to get to know even better.
  • Ask a lot of Questions: Some members present only their most positive aspects; some of their negative aspects might not be apparent the first few days they correspond with you. Other members provide very little information in their profile or their letters. Be wary of such contacts and ask a lot of questions to help you get a better perception of the person with whom you are corresponding.
  • Use a Non Descript Email Account: If you decide to communicate outside our site, use an email account other than your main personal or work account. There are many free email services available such as Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Hotmail that you can use for this purpose.
  • Use Call Block: If you decide to communicate by phone, apply call block before calling. Ask your phone company if you are unsure how to do this.
  • Meet in a Public Place: If you decide to meet in person, choose a public place and stay in a public place. If s/he is serious about the relationship, s/he will be glad to ensure you feel safe. Do not accept offers to have him/her pick you up or drop you off. Choose public transportation, your own vehicle, a taxi, or better yet, have a friend arrange the transportation for you. If things do not feel right, LEAVE. Better safe than sorry.
