Internet Friends?

I've been talking to this guy for about a year and a half, but i met him on the internet. I know you can never know who a person you talk to on the internet really is, but he's my friend.

I've seen him on webcam and seen his facebook but i'm still wary.

He went on holiday and bought me a present and is sending me it in the post.

But am i being stupid? And should i continue talking to him?

You can talk to your friend... but do not expect anything more. The main thing is that you feel 'wary'....trust your instincts, that is why we have them. So he bought you a gift. and you gave him your address, so he IS sending it to you. please just becareful. There are some wierd people out there, please be safe. Try not to give out any personal info next time.... you never know.

always stay in your safe zone with these situations.



if you feel comfortable talking to him then do so



if you feel comfortable accepting gifts then it's ok



but if he askes to meet you alone and you don't feel comfortable don't do it.





just follow your guts and always remember he can't make you do anything you don't want to do unless you let him.

i found this it opened my eyes....please have a look





Shannon could hear the footsteps behind her as she walked toward home. The thought of being followed made her heart beat faster. "You're being silly," she told herself, "no one is following you." To be safe she began to walk faster, but the footsteps kept up with her pace. She was afraid to look back and she was glad she was almost home. Shannon said a quick prayer, "God please get me home safe." She saw the porch light burning and ran the rest of the way to her house.



Once inside she leaned against the door for a moment, relieved to be in the safety of her home. She glanced out the window to see if anyone was there. The sidewalk was empty.

After tossing her books on the sofa she decided to grab a snack and get online. There she could talk to strangers without being afraid. After all, no one knew who she really was and couldn't hurt her.



She logged on under her screen name ByAngel213. Checking her Buddy List she saw GoTo123 was on.



She sent him an instant message:



ByAngel213: "Hi I'm glad you are on! I thought someone was following me home today. It was really weird!"



GoTo123: "LOL You watch too much TV. Why would someone be following you? Don't you live in a safe neighbourhood?"



ByAngel213: "Of course I do LOL...I guess it was my imagination 'cause I didn't see anybody when I looked out."



GoTo123: "Unless you gave your name out on line...you haven't done that have you?"



ByAngel213: "Of course not. I'm not stupid you know."



GoTo123: "Did you have a softball game after school today?"



ByAngel213: "Yes and we won!!"



GoTo123: "That's great! Who did you play?"



ByAngel213: "We played the Hornets LOL..their uniforms are so gross! They look like bees LOL..."



GoThere123: "What is your team called?"



ByAngel213: "We are the Canton Cats. We have tiger paws on our uniforms. They are really kewl."



GoTo123: "Do you pitch or what?"



ByAngel213: "No I play second base. I got to go. My homework has to be done before my parents get home. I don't want them mad at me. Bye."



GoTo123: "Catch you later.. Bye"



GoTo123 decided it was time to teach Angel a lesson. One she would never forget. He went to the member menu and began to search for herprofile. When it came up he highlighted it and printed it out. He took out a pen and began to write down what he knew about Angel so far.



Her name: Shannon

Birthday: Jan.3, 1985 age: 13

State where she lived: North Carolina

Hobbies: softball, chorus, skating and going to the mall.



Besides this information he knew she lived in Canton. She had just told him. He knew she stayed by herself until 6:30 every afternoon until her parents came home from work. He knew she played softball on Thursday afternoons on the school team and the team was named the Canton Cats. Her favourite number 7 was printed on her jersey. He knew she was in the seventh grade at the CantonJunior High School. She had told him all this in the conversations they had on line.



He had enough information to find her now. "She'll be so surprised," he thought, "she doesn't even know what she has done." Shannon didn't tell her parents about the incident on the way home from the ball park that day. She didn't want them to make a scene and stop her from walking home from the softball games. Parents were always overreacting and hers were the worst. It made her wish she was not an only child. Maybe if she had brothers and sisters her parents wouldn't be so overprotective.



By Thursday Shannon had forgotten about the footsteps following her. Her game was in full swing when suddenly she felt someone staring at her. It was then that the memory came back. She glanced up from her second base position to see a man watching her closely. He was leaning against the fence behind first base and he smiled when she looked at him. He didn't look scary and she quickly dismissed the fear she had felt.



After the game he sat on a bleacher while she talked to the coach. She noticed his smile once again as she walked past him. He nodded and she smiled back. He noticed her name on back of the shirt. He knew he had found her.



Quietly he walked a safe distance behind her. He didn't want to frighten her and have to explain what he was doing to anyone. It was only a few blocks to Shannon's home and once he saw where she lived he quickly returned to the park to get his car. Now he had to wait. He decided to get a bite to eat until the time came to go to Shannon's house. He drove to a fast food restaurant and sat there until time to make his move.



Shannon was in her room later that evening when she heard voices in the living room. "Shannon, come here," her father called. He sounded upset and she couldn't imagine why. She went into the room to see the man from the ballpark sitting on the sofa.



"Sit down," her father began, "this man is a policeman and he has just told us a most interesting story about you." Shannon moved cautiously to a chair across from the man. How could he tell her parents anything? She had never seen him before today!



"Do you know who I am Shannon?", the man asked "No", Shannon answered.

"I am your on line friend, GoTo123." Shannon was stunned. "That's impossible! GoTo123 is a kid my age! He's 14 and he lives in Michigan!"

The man smiled. "I know I told you all that but it wasn't true. You see Shannon there are people on line who pretend to be kids; I was one of them. But while others do it to find kids and hurt them, I belong to a group of parents who do it to protect kids from predators. I came here to find you to teach you how dangerous it is to give out too much information to people online. You told me enough about yourself to make it easy for me to find you. Position you played. The number and name on your jersey just made finding you a breeze."



Shannon was stunned. "You mean you don't live in Michigan?"

He laughed. "No, I live in Raleigh. It made you feel safe to think I was so far away, didn't it?" She nodded. "I had a friend whose daughter was like you. Only she wasn't as lucky. The guy found her and murdered her while she was home alone. Kids are taught not to tell anyone when they are alone, yet they do it all the time online. The wrong people trick you into giving out information a little here and there online. Before you know it, you have told them enough for them to find you without even realizing you have done it. I hope you've learned a lesson from this and won't do it again."

"I won't", Shannon promised solemnly.

"Will you tell others about this so they will be safe too?"

"It's a promise!"



That night Shannon and her Dad and Mom all knelt down together and prayed. They thanked God for protecting Shannon from what could have been a tragic situation



wow that was long but it was worth it
