I’m new on Tinder! My icebreaker is, “Icebreaker? I always use a pick axe… but every time I’ve brought it on a first date, she’s always disappeared”… …
Hasn’t actually worked so far, and probably not so funny in light of the recent ‘Tinder’ murder of a British backpacker in New Zealand… at least it’s original! 😀
BUT! I have the solution! (I always do)… it’s Tinder, but safer! (for both men and women).
It’s a global dating app, but both parties MUST notify the website of where and when they are meeting before they meet, and then both parties must agree to ‘check in’ after the date.
So, you would organise a date with a stranger (always a stranger until you’ve actually met face to face… even then years later after marriage!), you would then both notify the dating app of the time and location, if there are any discrepancies the other party is automatically notified.
Both parties agree to ‘check in’ or number of ‘check ins’ with the app, hours after the initial meeting time (two hours, six hours, twelve hours, twenty four hours). This would not only be password protected, but also an agreed ‘safe word’, to inform the dating app that they are safe.
If this does not happen at the agreed time, with agreed the ‘safe word’, the app automatically alerts authorities in the country or region. All information is ONLY then passed on to the relevant authorities (time, location, copies of messages etc) when one party does not ‘check in’.
(Maybe users have a chosen family or friend to alert also)
AND EVEN BETTER! It would be based in Tel Aviv 😀 and we’d employ former Mossad Operatives! (we’ll poach them from Black Cube)…
Problem solved ladies! 😀 (and gentlemen)
– ALL users MUST be verified as to who they say they are.
– A criminal background check is NOT mandatory, but the other user is notified if their potential date has refused to comply to one.
– It would also provide tips, advice and techniques from EXPERTS, as to how safe when meeting strangers.

To keep women safe, the creator of a sex party empire wants to track who, how and where we date
Killing Kittens founder Emma Sayle has created an app that alerts friends if they don’t check in at an agreed time – but there are limits to what tech can do

Scary Online Dating Statistics
So let’s talk scary online dating statistics:
10% of sex offenders use online dating sites
3% of members are psychopaths
81% of people lie on their online dating profile
Reports of online dating-related rape have risen by more than 450 percent in six years, the UK’s National Crime Agency announced on Sunday, warning that the surge in online dating had given rise to a “new kind of sexual offender.”
The number of reports of people raped during their first face-to-face meeting following initial contact online rose in the UK from 33 in 2009 to 184 in 2014, an almost sixfold increase.
After gathering that data from police forces, the NCA went on to analyze more data on reported rapes taking place after an initial meeting online between 2003 and 2015, to look at the characteristics of the alleged offenses.
It said 85 percent of those reporting rapes were women and 15 percent were men. Just over 40 percent of victims had spent time in private on their first date, and 71 percent of alleged rapes that occurred on the first face-to-face meeting following online contact were committed at the victim’s or offender’s residence.
“The Dangers of Online Dating” — (7 Statistics & 5 Ways to Protect Yourself)
1. About 10% of Sex Offenders Use Dating Sites
According to Phactual, one in 10 sex offenders is on a dating site to meet new people — while 25% of rapists use online dating to find their victims. If you’re worried about one of your online matches, you can refer to the National Sex Offender Public Website’s sex offender registry, where you can search by name and location.
3. Every Year, 16,000 Abductions, 100 Murders & Thousands of Rapes are Committed by Online Predators
Internet Predator Stats found online predators commit around 16,000 abductions, 100 murders, and thousands of rapes each year. These are terrifying numbers, but once again, the tips in this article are here to help protect you and your loved ones and lower that number to zero.
Reported crimes related to online dating have risen dramatically in the last five years.
Exclusive figures for Sky News from UK police forces show that 2,054 offences were recorded between 2011 and 2016.
In 2011, 140 crimes were recorded, by 2016 that had risen to 676 – a 382% increase.
In the same period, the number of sexual crimes reported rose from 14 to 106 and violent attacks were up from 29 to 240.
The National Crime Agency has been monitoring violence connected to online dating and has detected the number of rapes being reported has risen sixfold in five years.
The NCA’s head of national investigative capabilities, Sean Sutton, told Sky News: “We know that only about 16% of all stranger rape cases and sexual assaults in general are reported to the police so we know that we are only dealing with the tip of the iceberg of the problem so that’s why we’re keeping a good eye on it.”
Nobody knows how dangerous online dating really is—and dating sites won’t talk about it
But fake profiles abound, sexual predators use the sites, and some common online dating behavior—like meeting alone after scant acquaintance, sharing personal information, and using geolocation—puts users at risk. Dating companies are being pushed to better protect users, but some seem reluctant to do more— or even to talk about whether there’s a problem.
Over the past four years, 17 people in the Greater Manchester area have reported being raped after using one of two apps, Grindr and Tinder, according to police statistics obtained by Leech through a freedom of information request.
The trouble is that statistics on crimes linked to online dating are sparse. In 2016, the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) released findings on data from police forces around the country. There are some big gaps. Not all the forces collect data specific to dating apps. Not all people who report attacks mention whether an app was involved. Victims, as well as perpetrators, hide crimes: Only an estimated 17% of all rapes, app-linked or not, are reported to police, the NCA said.
Nevertheless, while app-related assaults were still rare, they were rising fast enough for the NCA to flag the emergence of “a new type of sexual offender.” Usually a man, he’s less likely than other sexual offenders to have committed any kind of crime before, but instead exploits the “ease of access and arm-chair approach” to meeting people that dating sites enable.
Of course, sexual assaults related to online dating may be on the rise just because online dating itself is on the rise. But here’s one telling, albeit only suggestive, comparison: The Pew Research Center found that between 2008 and 2013 the proportion of American adults using dating services tripled. In Britain, attacks related to online dating increased almost six-fold over roughly the same period. If the US and UK are experiencing the same trends, then online dating is indeed becoming more dangerous.
