Idaho is one of the safest states when it comes to online dating and it isn't because our internet speeds are too slow to get us in trouble or that everyone owns a gun to protect themselves on the first date...well, actually that does help.

It used to be if you did online dating and told anyone they would make fun of you for the rest of your life. Now, online dating is as acceptable and maybe even more common than real life dating. The site HighSpeedInternet teamed up with SafeWise to determine which states are safest for online dating. They don't base their findings solely on online interaction though. They also took STD rates in each state, average church attendance and factored that in too.

We already know that each town in Idaho has some really safe areas and other areas that are sketchy. But, with all factors included, Idaho is the 5th safest state for online dating coming in just behind Utah and one ahead of Wyoming.

Have you done online dating and do you think it is safe to do in Idaho?
