Just a little vent;)
In this day and age of technology, it is now where many of us go to meet new people.
Whether we choose a dating app for a new beau or meetup or even CL. I have gone on 3 avenues and people are people. You just have to make sure you follow some guidelines to keep you safe.
1. I always make sure I talk to them on the phone 1st. You can get alot of info from talking on the phone.
2. I make sure they can prove who they are through social media.
3.I meet in a public place. In the 13 years that I have done this, I have had ZERO problems. ZERO.
But yet I still have some people in my life that give me ominous warnings. So that guy that grew up with a girl I knew back in the day; the one she married ended up killing her. Well she knew him and his family their whole life, no protection. It doesn’t matter what avenue that you use to meet someone; whether your next door neighbor or a person in a different state, you have to get to know people and sometimes that is still not enough. So what do you do stay away from everyone?
This why many Americans do not travel on their own because they feel everyone wants to kill them while they are traveling and that is a shame because traveling by yourself can be a wonderful experience to know yourself better and what you are capable of!
When we choose to be afraid of so many things instead of embracing experiences yet being mindful and careful, we close ourselves off to a life rich in experiences and the chance to meet some great people! Think about that next time you avoid meeting new people through technology or exploring new places by yourself!
