Tips for Online Meeting

Tips-for-Online-Meeting

Matrimony Site allows you to remain anonymous to other users until you feel comfortable to provide contact information to other users.

Never show your personal contact information in your profile, especially Email, Phone Numbers, Home Address, or your Last Name.

Only provide your contact information to the user you can trust.

Create a new email id for Online Meeting

Set up an email account just for an online meeting. This makes it easy to quarantine any unwanted mail.
Keep your password secure and make sure it is not easy to guess. Choose a unique password for an online meeting that you use nowhere else.

Do a background check of the prospective match

Conduct an end-to-end background check of the person. Try to contact the workplace, family, friends, relatives, neighbors, or associates of a prospective match to know more about him/her.

Always keep your family informed

Share information about the person you meet online with your family. Your family should be aware of the information shared, if any, by you with the prospective match found on the website.

Ask enough questions

Ask a lot of questions during communicating with another person and be alert for inconsistencies or asks for money. Make notes if you are suspicious of anything.

Never accept any request for money

If you are suspicious of a person or if someone asks you for money, use common sense and then report the situation to us by using the “contact form“.

We do not validate the identity of our members or the information that they submit on their profiles. Although we take steps to eliminate any suspect members, it is not possible to be 100% sure that all members will be honest and truthful in their dealings with other members. Be alert and use common sense when communicating with other members

NEVER send money to anyone you met online, but have not yet met in person.

Before you meet, find out as much as possible about the person you are communicating with before you meet them in person. Communicate using email wisely prior to calling the other person. Do not share your personal contact information or phone number with another person until you feel comfortable to do so.

Try to request multiple photos of the person you are communicating with. Ask to see photos of the person in a variety of situations at different times in their life. This helps to ‘paint a picture’ of the person and can be useful to understand more about that person.

Always meet in public place

When you do decide to meet face to face, pick a public place, and tell a friend where you’re going.

Let them know when you return.

During the meeting, Take your time to get to know the person. Proceed one step at a time and at your own pace.

If meeting a person located in a foreign country be aware of cultural differences and take the time to learn the culture and understand the other person’s expectations about the relationship. Spend as much time together as is possible getting to know the person, don’t just rely on email and instant messaging.

Investing additional time to get to know the person before things get serious will help you to avoid costly mistakes.

Getting married is one of the most important decisions in your life. So, before you get engaged, Make sure that you know as much as possible about your partner and take the time to consider what could go wrong.

Get to know your partner’s friends and family: in some countries when you marry someone you also “marry” their family.

Be cautious while dealing with NRI profiles

If you are getting engaged to someone from another country then you should take additional steps to familiarize yourself with your rights regarding domestic violence, abuse, and divorce in your partner’s country. Many countries including the USA, Australia, etc. have laws that protect the visa status of foreign women who are unfortunate enough to marry or become engaged to an abusive or violent partner. This means that you can usually seek help for problems related to domestic violence while maintaining your legal right to remain in the country.

In the event of a divorce, courts in many countries such as the USA, UK, Australia, etc. will consider the equitable distribution of all marital assets based on a variety of factors. You should therefore consider how you may be affected in the event of divorce.
