Hi Girls,

How do you feel about this? Are you worried about the websites you visit or who you are talking to? It’s important to know what to look out for. Keep in mind: no stranger you are talking to online has a good reason to expect you to send them anything besides words or emojis that you are writing to them (not money, not gifts, not pictures). Also, when you are writing words or emojis, none of what you write should give any information about how to find you. Online friendships can be very fun, but they are online friendships— that means there are different friendship rules than friends you know in real life. That being said, it’s still a good idea to ask your “person” if a friend you know in real life is expecting something from you like money, gifts or pictures, just in case.
