The awkward first date.
In the search to find our soul mate, a pint or glass of wine in the pub is usually the place to start.
But have you thought about what you would do if things were not going quite right?
What if you feel unsafe, maybe vulnerable due to that person's actions, words or behaviour and require assistance to help you out of that situation.
"Ask for Angela" is an initiative which has been launched by the Metropolitan Police, in a bid to provide assistance to individuals who may feel vulnerable when out in a pub or a club.
The campaign encourages individuals to discreetly approach staff members and ask for assistance.
The individual can be taken aside, or even to a safer location, where they can speak to a staff member in confidence about the assistance they may need.
Staff members can offer to call a taxi for the individual, contact friends or family, or request an individual causing the distress to leave the venue.
The campaign is being rolled out across the capital following a successful pilot in Merton, south London, before Christmas, which saw at least 50% of venues in the borough sign up, with that number continuing to grow.
"Ask for Angela" was initially launched by Lincolnshire County Council and aims to reduce sexual violence and vulnerability by offering individuals a phrase to use when they require help.
Inspector Wayne Matthews, from the Central Licensing Team, said: “This is a simple yet effective scheme which empowers members of the public to seek help if they are feeling vulnerable, by allowing them to raise their concerns with staff.
"It may be that they are in the company of someone who is not what they seemed and they want to get away safely and with minimum fuss.
"This initiative will facilitate this and hopefully prevent situations from escalating into something more serious.
"Of course where scenarios do develop we know bar staff will contact police to attend the scene and deal in the usual manner.”
Since the initiative was implemented in Merton, there have been a number of incidents in which staff members have intervened, the police said.
According to police, security staff at a nightclub in Wimbledon noticed two men plying a lone female with drinks, whilst remaining sober themselves.
Staff, believing their intentions to be dishonourable, called police and the men were removed from the club.
The female was then given a lift home by officers, to ensure her safety.
Officers from the Met Police will be delivering posters to venues across the capital, which will be placed in the toilets, with the aim of being discreet.
