Boo Dating Safety Tips

We at Boo want to assist you in meeting new people, friends, or lovers. While this experience is thrilling, it's critical to exercise caution when meeting strangers for the first time. When interacting with someone for the first time, whether online or in person, use your best judgment and put your personal safety first. While you can't control the behavior of others, here are some things you can do to keep yourself safe during your Boo adventure.

Online Safety

  • Never give or share financial information. Do not wire or send money to someone on our app, even if it appears to be an emergency. It's extremely difficult to reverse the transaction or figure out where the cash went. Do not disclose any financial account information to anybody. If another person asks you for money, please let us know right away. For further tips to avoid romance scams, read the advice from the U.S Federal Trade Commission on the FTC website.

  • Keep your personal information secure. Keep your personal information private, especially your social security number, home addresses, and daily routine details, with strangers you don't know. If you're a parent, keep the information you provide about your children to a minimum on your profile and while engaging with others. Don't mention specific details about your youngsters, such as names, schools, ages, or genders.

  • Stay on the platform. While you're getting to know someone on the Boo platform, you may talk about anything. When people with bad intentions attempt to move the conversation to text, messaging apps, email, or phone as soon as possible, it's a sign of a potential hazard.

  • Be wary of long distance and overseas relationships. One of the most prevalent frauds is when impostors claim to be from your nation but are stranded someplace else, particularly if they request financial help to return home. Pay attention to individuals who will not meet in person or conduct a phone/video conversation. It's also a warning if someone is avoiding your inquiries or pushing for a serious connection without meeting you first.

  • All suspicious and offensive behavior should be reported. If you come across users who are breaking our community standards, we want to know about it so that we may prevent it and allow Boo to continue to promote a secure environment. Anyone who breaks our conditions should be blocked and reported. Here are some examples of violations:

    • Requests for financial assistance or donations are common.
    • Users under the age of 18 are prohibited from using this site.
    • Harassment, threats, and offensive messages
    • Inappropriate or damaging conduct during or after meeting in person
    • Deceitful profiles
    • Spam or requests to buy items or services, as well as commercial websites and attempts to sell goods or services

    You may also report any suspicious activity on a profile page by emailing us at For more information, check out our Community Guidelines.

  • Protect Your Account. If you sign in to your account using a shared or public computer, be careful. Boo will never send you an email asking for your username and password information — if you get an email requesting account information, please notify us as soon as possible.

Meeting in Person

  • Don't be in a hurry. Taking the time to get to know someone is inconvenient, so don't be in a rush to decide on a date or communicate outside of Boo. We recommend asking questions to screen for any potential red flags or personal dealbreakers. A phone or video chat may also be a good screening tool for all of your matches.

  • Meet in public and remain in the open. When you first meet someone, go to a public and populated place — never your home, your date's home, or any other private location. If your date makes you feel obliged to visit a secret place, leave the date immediately and safely return home.

  • Tell friends and family about your plans. Tell a friend or family member about your plans, including when and where you'll be going. This is to ensure your safety and it also allows others to anticipate your return. Keep your cell phone charged and on you at all times.

  • Take control of your transportation. You should have the ability to get to and from your date at your discretion, so that you may depart at any time during the date. If you're driving yourself, it's a good idea to have a backup plan in case something goes wrong.

  • Know your limits. Always keep in mind the consequences of drugs or alcohol on you — they may cause you to make bad judgments and be slow to react. If you feel compelled to use narcotics or get wasted beyond your limits, refuse and call it a night.

  • Don't leave drinks or personal belongings unattended. Keep your drink in front of you at all times — only accept drinks poured directly by the bartender or server. Many drugs that are added to alcoholic beverages to aid in sexual assault have no odor, color, or taste. Additionally, keep your phone, handbag, wallet, and other personal belongings on you at all times.

  • If you feel uncomfortable, leave. Ending a date because you're uncomfortable is perfectly permissible. In fact, it's highly encouraged. Also, if your instincts are telling you something isn't right, appeal to the bartender, server, or manager for assistance.

  • LGBTQ+ travel. Be cautious while on the road. We understand and value the need to be respectful of everyone's gender identities and sexual orientations, but the fact is that everywhere in the world has potential danger, and some nations even have legislation targeting LGBTQ+ people.

    When you move to a new region, familiarize yourself with the laws that govern it and find out what, if any, legal protective measures are available to you. If you want to interact with new people in these nations, be cautious - some law enforcement agencies have been reported to utilize dating apps as instruments for potential entrapment.

    In recent years, several nations have enacted legislation that criminalizes communications between individuals using same-sex dating apps or websites, as well as increasing fines if the communication results in sexual encounters. Visit ILGA World to see the latest sexual orientation laws by country, and consider donating to support their research.

  • Protect Yourself. Condoms and other barrier methods can significantly lower the chance of acquiring and passing on sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as HIV if used correctly. However, be informed that certain STIs, such as herpes or HPV, may be transferred through skin-to-skin contact. The risk of acquiring some STIs can be decreased by vaccination.

  • Know Your Status. Although many STIs do not produce symptoms, you don't want to be ignorant about your own status. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent the spread of STIs by getting tested on a regular basis. Here's where you may locate a clinic in your area (only in the United States).

  • Talk About It. It's also a good idea to set some ground rules before getting physically intimate with someone. It's critical to talk about sexual health and STI testing before you engage in physical intimacy with a partner. In fact, it is illegal in some countries to knowingly spread an STD.

  • Consent. Any and all sexual activities must start with clear and unaltered permission, as well as check-ins after the activity continues. Verbal communication might help you and your partner avoid cross-border infringements of each other's boundaries. Consent can always be revoked if you or your partner are no longer willing, and sex is never a debt owed to anybody. Proceed only if your partner seems comfortable or confident, or if their ability to consent is not due to the influence of drugs or alcohol. Read more about consent here.
