A 1987 batch Ohio University alumna Jo Lynn Clemens has created a dating tool called Xoxy, an app that aims to eliminate deceitful dating by having a ready database of people free of STDs, free of felony offenses and sexual offense charges in all 50 states.Speaking about why she felt the need for a dating tool such as Xoxy, Clemens said, “The fact is that casual dating apps like Tinder and others have led to an increase in the transmission of STDs nationwide.Seventy percent of college students date online, and that can subject them to violent crimes, those with criminal intent, and with questionable health background.” This is how Xoxy works: Users signed up for the app authorize their identification, following which, Xoxy’s partner ICS-Merrill, an investigative service, does an electronic background check to see if the user has any record of felonies and/or sexual offenses.And for the STD test, Xoxy makes use of a local lab, where the user is sent for the required tests.Take your own transportation and meet in a very public place (i.e. 5) If, when you see the person, you sense he/she has lied about things in their profile (height, age, photo) then consider cutting the date short and/or (if you're bold) tell the person that you don't date people who lie in their profile.
4) If you decide to meet, don't allow the person to pick you up.
Really, you want the focus to be on you and not someone else in the picture. Later you can send pictures that include other people.
I see lots of TV commercials promoting online dating as a safe, good way to meet people.
