Beware & Be Cautious - The world can be a dangerous place so use common sense and caution when meeting new people. There are good people in the world and unfortunately there are bad people. When meeting people, especially through the Internet, you should consult authoritative sources for safety considerations, but here are a couple of reminders of some basic considerations. Never go anywhere with someone you don't know. Always meet new people in a public place, during daylight hours, and meet someplace that is well populated with people. Be sure that someone knows where you are going and perhaps even have another adult accompany you when meeting someone you do not know. Never give out your personal information. This is also good advice for when you are selling items locally to an unknown person. We are not responsible for the people that you meet or any incidents or relationships that arise from those meetings. This site is for adults and as adults you are responsible for your own life and how you handle meeting new people. Please be cautious and stay safe and happy.
