Some people who meet on a dating site give out their phone number or video chat within the first week.
These are typically people who are either very used to meeting people through a dating site or they are really comfortable with whoever it is that they have met on the dating site.
For the people who are used to meeting someone through a dating site, they may not consider giving out their phone number or doing a video chat with someone in the first week to be a big deal.
They have done this multiple times in the past and have so far had no major issues with it.
For the people who give someone their phone number or video chat someone that they met on a dating site within first week because they are really comfortable with the person, they may have really engaged in some substantive conversations on the dating site with the person that made them feel good about giving out this information.
This doesn’t mean that it is guaranteed that they don’t end up dealing with someone who may have issues.
It is still a chance that they are taking.
However, they have to the decision to give out their phone number or do a video chat after having thought this through carefully.
After having thought it through carefully, they may feel satisfied that they have done their due diligence in vetting the person as best as they could during the course of that first week.
They have now reached a position where they feel that they are comfortable with giving the person their phone number or doing a video chat with the person.
If you aren’t used to meeting people through a dating site, you may feel uncomfortable about the idea of giving someone your phone number or doing a video chat with someone you met on a dating site within the first week.
You would also feel uncomfortable if you haven’t reached a point with this person where you feel that you have vetted them well enough to give them your phone number or video chat with them.
There is nothing wrong with feeling uncomfortable.
It is always best to only give out your phone number to someone or do a video chat when you feel good and ready.
You will know when that is because you would just feel an ease about giving this person that you met on a dating site your phone number or video chatting with them.
Again, you should only divulge this information when you feel ready to do so.
Never allow yourself to give out your phone number or do a video chat with someone simply because that person is asking you to or telling you to.
If the person is truly intent on getting to know you as a person and respects you, they will be willing to wait until you are ready to give them your phone number or do a video chat.
Also, there is another way that you can be safer about this if you feel that you are just not ready to give out your phone number or video chat.
Oftentimes, a dating site will have a way by which you can chat with people through a chat feature.
Look to see if the dating site that you use has this feature.
This will actually allow the both of you to talk to each other in real time as though you were using a messenger online.
This way, you are actually able to conduct a back and forth conversation without worrying about dealing with the kind of delays in response that would happen if you were only sending each other text emails.
If the dating site that you are on has this chat feature, ask this other person if they would like to use it to communicate.
This way, if the other person agrees, you can get a much better idea of what it would be like to have a real life conversation with this person.
The process of chatting with this person through this chat feature may ultimately get you to the point where you feel more comfortable giving out your phone number or doing a video chat.
