In brief: Safe sites

An online site isn't dangerous or safe.
An online site simply is a forum to meet others. There will be people online just like people you meet at any social gathering place that are nice and others that are mean. It is your responsibility to be careful and "fully vet" someone new you meet. You can take precautions like only meeting in places that are open, crowded public spaces during the day.
