Safety in the Air

Safety in the Air

Hey Everybody,

We have heard from a lot of our Cherry Blossoms members that they will be traveling abroad this year to meet their  girlfriends and fiancées .  I was reading article about thinking safety while in the air.  I, myself, have never been too concerned with where I sat or thinking with safety in mind when on a plane.  This new article from wanderlust.co.uk has made me think about it more, and I’d like to share it with you.  

 

It doesn’t take much to cover these basic items and it’ll give you some peace of mind knowing you’ve done what you can to make your trip safer.  A lot of it is just familiarizing yourself with the plane and knowing where the exit is from where you’re sitting. If (it’s unlikely, but things do happen) something does happen you’ll know what to do when it does .

 

One of the more important things they mention is keeping your shoes on especially during takeoff and landing.  I have seen a lot of people flying with their shoes off when landing and taking off and it would be impossible to get them on in  emergency.

 

The article also stresses to pay attention to the flight crew’s instructions in case of emergency. They’re there to help keep you safe.

 

     It’s also important if you’re taking a flight on a local airline  in another country to check its safety record.   Some of these airlines can have poor safety records and you may be better off choosing a more expensive flight with a better rating.   

 

Check out this aircraft travel checklist  at this link  staying safe in the air .

 

Aloha,

Online Dating Safety and Guidelines for New Cherry Blossoms Users

Online Safety & User Guidelines

One of the great things about setting up a personal profile  for the purposes of online dating is that you have the chance to really showcase yourself and really express how you want others to view you. Potential dates can now see you as a person, your personality, and perhaps some common traits you may share. The more a person knows about you, the better the odds are for finding a match. The chance to really hit it off is definitely a motivating factor for online dating.

That said, in today’s world of identity theft, fraud, and other online scams, sharing too much information can definitely have negative effects. You need to find a balance between being as open and honest as possible while still protecting yourself and your personal information.

To maximize the benefits of any online dating site , discretion should be exercised. One could say the website acts as a kind of  “buffer zone”.  After all, one of the primary purpose of dating sites like blossoms.com is to ensure the safety and anonymity of its clients up to a certain point; until both sides are confident they can trust one another and take the relationship to the next level.

Online dating safety begins at home with you and you alone.  Here are a few tips to help you on your dating search!

  • Cherry Blossoms and many other dating websites will have a specific section solely devoted to pointers on “online dating safety”. We feel strongly that it’s necessary to review the dating site’s safety pages and stick to the guidelines that are set in place. It may sound redundant, but failure to do so can result in undesired consequences and even unwanted experiences.

 

  • There are some solid points that you want to get into the habit of following while online dating (and in general).  To start, it’s a safe bet that you don’t want any of your personal information out there. Don’t immediately share phone numbers or personal and work addresses. NEVER share social security numbers, and credit card or bank information.

 

  • As far as email addresses are concerned, we highly suggest setting up a new email account specifically to be used for online dating. Giving out your primary and/or work email could also have negative impacts and could again be used for illicit purposes.  Cherry Blossoms’ online dating site already has built in messenger and mail capabilities so it’s best to stick with those means until you’re fully comfortable providing more information about yourself.

 

  • We can’t stress this enough- NEVER SEND MONEY to anyone you have not met in person.  Many customers have reported scams; people asking for money for hospital bills, webcams, or other financial help. Be savvy; learn to recognize these requests for what they are! Report any suspicious behavior and, remember, never send money.

 

Part of a great dating website experience is feeling comfortable, safe and having an all around good time. After all, it’s enough for anyone to continuously worry about all the other threats online nowadays. We want you to feel informed and confident online!

UPDATE: CherryBlossoms.com has a new state of the art chat feature coming online to provide games, fun, and live translations.  So no excuses, come join the fun and stay safe online, be confident in yourself and your profile, and have fun!

What Makes Great Online Dating Site Profile Photos?

Pretty Asian woman

Hey everybody,

 

I was just reading a new study that show why some online dating profile pictures work and some don’t.   This study makes total sense when you think about it; what men and women like in a profile photo are very different.   

 

This study  discovered women like photos of men who show pride and confidence.  Pride and confidence will make you seem more masculine. I am not talking about a picture of you with your shirt off and flexing your muscles or in the bathroom mirror -in our experience these will actually decrease your chances of successfully dating online. Guys,  I am talking about photo of you dressed nicely, smiling, and  looking directly into the camera. Setting is important too:  we’ve noticed women seem to prefer photos of men taken outdoors.

 

Don’t be afraid to ask a friend for help taking pictures. While  men don’t seem to mind selfies on a woman’s profile, women tend to see men posting selfies in a dating profile as being vain.

 

Ladies! Men, on the other hand, preferred photos of women who looked “happy and approachable”.  Be sure to smile! Several studies have shown that the left side of the face is more expressive- so show your left side when taking photos.

 

Consensus here at CB is that you want to dress a little on the conservative side as photos that are too provocative can lead to the wrong kind of attention. Wear some bright colors and outfits that highlight your natural features.

 

Don’t put pictures of yourself with your exes or children in profile pictures. These are important details (if you’ve been divorced, if you have children) but your profile should be about YOU. Share this information on your personal ad; you can and should be upfront about having kids or being previously married.

Guys AND Gals-this is the most important part.

Put on a current picture.   Once you meet someone online it will be a short time before you’re video chatting and it will be hard to explain if you look differently from your profile photo.   Always keep your photos and profile real  and remember the right person will come along and accept you for who you are. Meeting online and having long distance relationships can work.
