Tell at least two people where you are going and when you could be expected back.
Preferably don't go at all - not unless you take at least two people with you. Call yourself Sex Bomb or Dreamstud and you are bound to attract the attention of sickos who cannot get their jollies in the normal social way – ask yourself why this is?

Keep in mind that the possibility exists that the sexy blonde 16-year-old babe you’ve been chatting to for two weeks could in fact be a 56-year-old man. Many paedophiles use the chat rooms as hunting grounds. But then, the chat room is not really going to solve that. Calls are expensive – if you spend only an hour a day on the phone every day, this could increase your parents' phone bill substantially. One could probably get away with this for a short time, but eventually you are going to forget what you said to whom.On the net it is dangerous to believe everything people tell you. There are many oddballs out there – do you really want them on your doorstep? Most parents would not jump for joy at this increase in their phonebill. If a specific person harasses you online, swears at you or constantly makes disgusting suggestions, you can have them barred – every chat room usually has an ‘overseer’ who is contactable. Puffball will react with shock when she finds out you are in fact a scholar and not the psychiatrist you pretended to be.And for a while at least, it all felt harmless and innocent, and fun. My father leaving didn't help, and for the first six months of my life I was placed with a notional "auntie", a family friend who became my surrogate mother throughout my childhood. Make your chat with strangers extremely interesting!It's hard to miss those Bay Area billboards claiming that 1 in 5 children has been sexually solicited online, although only a tiny fraction of those involve aggressive solicitations from someone believed to be over age 25.I was a latecomer to counselling, having previously considered therapy a largely American pursuit. By the time I reached that landmark age, without children and in a marriage that was beginning to lose its fairytale glow, my daily life was beginning to feel not unlike a soap opera.Allowing yourself to be pressurised into a meeting. It is wisest not to do this at all, but if I cannot talk you out of it, take at least two friends with you.Meet in a public place and do not divulge your address.
