#1 | You might see naked pictures of someone you know.
Brace yourself; you’ve just joined an adult dating app or website. What happens next? Chances are you’ll be dialing in your online profile to maximize your chances at finding a match or swiping through profiles of hot members near you.
If you live in a large metropolitan area, or even a smaller town, the chances are that you might see someone you know on the site. Furthermore, depending on which dating site or app you're using, there’s very real possibility of seeing naked pictures of someone you know.
Never spread rumors, gossip, or draw attention to their profile unnecessarily. The whole point of fuck buddy apps and hook up site’s is to keep things relatively discrete. When you draw attention or spread rumors you’re only hurting your chance of meeting a match. It’s important that members respect the community and have reasonable boundaries, so user’s don’t feel uncomfortable.
It’s also not a good idea to approach the person you may have seen online in public unless you’ve made definite plans to do so. The moral of the story is: don’t freak out if you see naked pictures of someone you know, don’t spread rumors, and respect the community of people online looking to hook up.
#2 | Don’t spread rumors or share private profiles.
If you share private profiles publicly online or spread rumors in public, the chances are that the member will feel uncomfortable and possibly delete their profile altogether. Ultimately this hurts the community and other’s chances of finding someone they are romantically or sexually compatible. So please, stay discrete. What happens on adult dating websites, should remain on adult dating websites.

#3 | Remember that you will see them again
Assuming things are going well for you, you’ve hopefully developed a compelling online profile, and are starting to meet locals for hookups, dates, and even casual sex. Some of these people might be your neighbors and live less than a mile away from you. Other’s might be secretaries, nurses, clerks or even professionals in your area. If you’ve been active on a large casual sex website or application, you’re going to meet a variety of different people.
It might surprise you, but the world is a lot smaller than you think. Often you will run into casual sex partners, hookups, and friends with benefits down the line in public or some other setting. It’s important to remain respectful, discrete, and mature at all times whether in public or private. The last thing you want to do is sour a casual relationship that’s moving in the right direction. Keep in mind when you meet for sex, you will most likely be seeing this person again.
#4 | Be Discrete
In case you haven’t been reading closely so far, let me stress this point again, whether you’re using a casual or adult dating service, using discretion is always necessary. Not everyone wants to have everyone in the town know that they have an adult dating profile (perhaps neither do you) so it’s in everyone’s best interest to keep what happens on adult websites, on the website and not out in the open. Please bear this in mind when using MeetBang and other fuck buddy services.
#5 | Use protection
Casual hook ups are fun, and they should stay that way. But for casual sex to remain fun and stress-free, the right protection absolutely must be used.
Condoms are a must when having casual sex with friends, strangers, and people you meet for sex online. The last thing you want to do is put your health, finances, and future on the line by having unprotected sex with someone you are just getting acquainted with. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and even though it doesn’t feel as good, you’ll thank yourself later for using protection when you’re not being kept on at night over STD or pregnancy scares. Moral of the story - strap up every time, no matter what.
