Thanks to technology, singles today can date people from every walk of life. This advance means that they can date people from outside of their hometowns, their church communities, their local high schools and universities, so they no longer know if their dates share their same values and standards. If you do not know the values of your date, the easiest way to find out is to ask. Give your date hypothetical situations and see how he/she responds; treat it as a fun Q&A! If you continue to date, their standards and values will be come more apparent in their actions. But until you know a person's values well, you should probably date in public places amongst people where you feel safe.
