COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

This site was created just for YOU to meet and socialize (and maybe find the love of your life) with people who are into the same things you are: namely Rockabilly music and lifestyle. Whether you’re in a band, love to jive, love vintage fashion or traveling the world to different rockabilly events, this site is yours. It’s up to you to keep meeting and dating fun and easy so you get to create the content and interactions. Here are some pointers from rockabillydating.net on keeping things safe and fun.

ONLINE SAFETY: Safety is one of our biggest priorities and an important one when it comes to dating and cyber relationships.

Protect your financial information and never send money:
There are tons of scams out there regarding getting your financial info and password. There are also scams regarding credit card charges and moving money around for people. NEVER send financial info, accounts, numbers or passwords to people on the internet. NEVER let someone talk you into paying someone for them until they can send you a credit card number. Basically- if something seems fishy- IT IS. Noone who is a REAL potential friend or date will ask you for this information.

We will never email you asking for your login and password info. If you receive an email like this, please email us at info@rockabillydating.net

Do not share personal info with someone you have never met in person (and maybe not even then).
That means no home addresses, bank account numbers, social security numbers, where you work etc.

Block and report suspicious users:
You can block and report concerns about any suspicious user anonymously from any profile page, email or messaging window. Keep conversations on the platform. Bad actors will try to move the conversation to text, personal email or phone conversations.

Report All Suspicious Behavior:
Report anyone who violates our Service Agreement by emailing info@rockabillydating.net  Examples of Service Agreement violations include:

  • • Asking you for money or donations
  • • Requesting photographs
  • • Minors using the platform
  • • Members sending harassing or offensive messages or emails
  • • Members behaving inappropriately during or after meeting in person
  • • Fraudulent registration or profiles
  • • Spam or solicitation, such as invitations to call 1-900 numbers or attempts to sell products or service.


    OFFLINE SAFETLY

    Meeting people for the first time can be fun and exciting whether meeting new friends for shows or meeting a potential date. Always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help stay safe!

    Take the time to get to know the other person

    Keep your communications on the platform and really get to know users online/using the app before meeting them in person. Bad actors will often push people to communicate off the platform immediately vs. staying on the platform where it is somewhat moderated and controlled. Do your due diligence and homework on anyone you may meet up with. Take the time to get on the phone a few times to speak to the other person as well. Vibes you’re not crazy about will usually surface on the phone and help you gauge how a first meeting will go.

    Meet in public and stay in public

    Always meet in public the first few times you go out with someone. A populated, busy place like a coffee shop or museum is great. Never meet in private or remote locations or at your dates home. If you ever feel uncomfortable or pressured to leave your public location, end the date or meeting immediately and go somewhere safe.

    Let your friends or family know who and where you are going

    Always let at least one person know what your plans are and stay in touch with them. Have a check in time with them so they know you are safe and keep your cell phone charged and on you at all times.

    Get yourself to the meeting

    Never rely on your date or new friend to pick you up or get you home. Drive yourself (and stay sober) or use a car service. Do not rely on others for transportation.

    Stay Sober

    Alcohol and drugs can impair your judgement and put you at risk. On first (and second) meetings its best to stay sober to keep a clear head to reduce risk. Be aware of people who may take advantage of you by altering your drink with drugs and other substances. Never leave your drink alone and always watch your drink being made. Take it with you to the bathroom or trash it.

    Protect personal belongings:

    Don’t leave your wallet, phone, purse, jacket or other important items unattended with your date/new friend. Keep all of those things on your person at all times. Do not incur large expenses without a pre-conceived plan for splitting them.

    Overall Rules:

    Be Nice, Be Polite- there are people here just like you who may have never been on a dating site before. For some of us, this may be old hat but the fact remains that there are people behind the screens so be respectful, kind and don’t be a dick. This of it like a big cyberspace dance where respect, politeness, kindness and generosity are key. This is a small community. You never know where or when you will run into a fellow member in the real world!

    If there is ever an issue with another member, post or comment, please email us immediately at info@rockabillydating.net. If you are unsure of our policies on dick pics, spam, bullying, racism, etc… refer to our Service Agreement. We do not tolerate any of those, btw, and abusers will be removed immediately. Similarly, if you see anything that is offensive or uncool on rockabillydating.net, please email us immediately.

    If you see photos or videos that belong to someone else and are being used by a member, don’t panic. Message them via the website and politely ask them to remove it. If they do not, contact us immediately. This violates Copyright laws and is against DMCA rules.

    Alternatively, please do not share people’s photos on other websites like Facebook and Instagram. This is a violation of privacy and our policies. If you are one of those IG bloggers who has 14k followers on their online dating mishaps, please respect people’s privacy. I don’t think you’d want to have your privacy violated either.
