Hello there mylotters... Now that we are in the Cyber Age, we meet a lot of people around the globe via internet. Having friends are not bad but we need to make sure that they don't have any bad intention to us. I'm writing this because i've been fooled last year. I met a Turkish guy online in a social networking site. At the first days, he's quite kind and very friendly. But after like three days, he asked me to be his partner, and of course, im not that stupid to accept a person i hardly knew, so i rejected and suggest us to be friends. Well, he dont like it, so he showed me his true colors, he bad-mouthed me, and some perverted words that can be considered under racism. So he's a racist and a pervert guy. So, from that day on, on every person im meeting especially guys, im checking whats there personality just on the way they say hi or hello or on how they greet a person before i accept them as my friend. So, For all of you reading this, i hope you can learn from it coz i dont want any other ladies out there be fooled by these kind of guys. Be Wise..:D Have a nice day!

We should be aware of the people we write to. Through Internet that is not possible or too difficult to know about everyone. i think we should be very careful. Not getting too personal with the person we write with. There are all kinds of people on the internet abusing our privacy and cursing everyone. Communicating with strangers is very risky and finally we can always be surprized badly. That's my opinion. Have a very nive MyLotting ;)

I really believe that parents for instance, should always supervise their children whilst they are logged on to the PC and try and encourage activities that are more stimulating and rewarding. I've had similar experiences to you and I'm a 37 year old adult! - I sold a coat on a site called Guildford Gumtree five years ago now and this man wanted to buy it from me. He called me up because my number appeared on the contact site, and wouldn't leave me alone. I was really afraid and tried telling him to leave me alone, but he ignored my feelings and soon he made arrangements for us to meet up (I wanted none of this) but felt vulnerable at the time and doubted that he was a dangerous person. He was extremely ugly, really awful about my weight as was two stone heavier than normal at the time and just plain horrid. I ended up moving from my rented accommodation in the end to get away from him as he kept coming unannounced. I feel sorry that you ended up meeting someone like that, it teaches us lessons we don't really want to learn, but must if we are to protect ourselves. I think a lot of people are lonely and that's awful for them, but when they just want to get their kicks from abusing others or deceiving them, then they eventually come undone somewhere along the line. This guy might bump into a police woman posing to be a woman wanting a date and end up in cuffs by the end of the night!
