By Jeffrey Jackson

One way to do this is to not leave personalized messages on your answering machine, but rather using the automated voice. Leave personal messages for your cell phone.

You never know who is accessing your information. Be smart about the information you give out to the general public. It is important not to list phone numbers and addresses online that someone can easily use against you.

Self defense classes can be another good option. They can come in handy in case you are attacked and need to protect yourself. They also teach you great safety principles to keep you from being a victim in the first place.

Never give out your home address to someone you have met online. Online dating is a dangerous field. If you absolutely have to meet them, be smart about where you decide to meet up.

Public places are good places to meet up with people you have just met. If possible, have a friend tag along with you and ask that he do the same. Also, let other family members and friends know about your meeting and have them give you a call at least once during your date. The phone call can be good to check up on your safety, and also a good time to share with your friend out loud where your location is, who you are with, and when you plan to be returning home.

If you know of other women who are living alone, watch out for each other. Having a buddy system adds extra safety. If you are going out for a run, run together, etc.

Strong locks, outdoor lighting, alarm systems and other security measures need to be used to ensure your safety. Take precautions to make sure that your home safety is up to par. Be smart in your choices for home security.
