Online dating is mostly a convenient approach to meet new people, but it also can put you at risk for information theft and other scams. Exactly what do you do to keep yourself secure while seeing?

Avoid sites and applications that allow just anyone message you.

Using an app that will need both both you and the person you’re interested in to make contact with each other before beginning a chat can help to prevent unwanted messages, warns Laurie Davis, a professional matchmaker and founder of eFlirt, a dating web page.

Examine social media dating profiles of your date ranges for clues about their background personality.

Be sure you avoid posting photographs of your home or work that show your area. This can make it possible for a unfamiliar person to determine your location, says Jane Ellen O’Toole, a former FBI criminal arrest profiler exactly who advises ladies prove online dating security.

Employ reverse impression search to verify the photos with your potential date’s profile.

Remain in public with your first night out.

Unless you could have been launched by a good friend, never connect with someone at their home or accept a ride from on the initial date.

Inform at least one trusted friend in which and when you aren’t going on your date, make up a period of time to text them to state that you happen to be ok.

When you aren’t confident with a date, drop them off and report them to the dating app or web page immediately.

May give out personal information over the internet, whether or not it’s “just your last name. ” This could put you at risk for information theft and expose your bank account or credit rating to con artists.

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.


Polyvocal Tongue The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.


TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
