Do You Talk To Stranger?

It has been said not to trust or talk to stranger for obvious reason: personal safety and protection. In this day and age and with so many bad things going on around us, one cannot afford not to be concern about our personal safety. It is better to be safe than to be sorry as they all say. With that in mind: Do you still talk to a stranger? Are you willing to help a stranger? Are you willing to trust a stranger? Picture credit: psychologytoday.com

I talk to strangers. I am willing to help a stranger, usually a female since I am female. Trusting all strangers would not be wise, however.

It depends which strangers. When I wait for my husband at the hospital I talk to the patients who are also waiting and talk to me. At the grocery store I reply to people who ask me questions. I am no more a kid, I can spot those who I can trust.

@LadyDuck That's a good point you mentioned my friend depending on the "kind" or "type" of strangers.

I have helped many strangers and talked with them. I am just more cautious.

Yes I do all three. I sort of know who not to talk to, like the dopers and such.

Yes, I am willing to say hi at least and, help if I can, but trust no, that's something that comes with a lot of time.
