There was this guy from out of the blue who just pop out to chat with me in yahoo messenger. He said that we know each other and hd chatted long time ago. At first I cannot really remember him but when he mentioned that he came from LinkedIn then that reminded me. So I bear with him though for me he was such a predator in disguise; prying on my marriage relationship, so I asked him to just leave me alone because I didn't like to "philosophize" with him. He got mad and said all those "street language" that literally made me sick. My internet phobia came back to me and I started crying.
What am I supposed to do? I am scared of these types of people in the net and this is the reason why I surround myself with a "wall" that I sound unfriendly. I like to have many friends for as long s they are civil enough to be worth my friendship.
That's why there are "block" and "report" buttons on most sites.
It's important to realise that the internet allows many people the anonymity to do as they wish - so you need to protect yourself from those who don't have the best intentions.
Thank you, you are right; I know that I am really stupidly careless lots of times and this care-free attitude bring me so much trouble until I become "hardened" as a result, I cannot think in advance that there are people who abuse others or who would abuse me. I had "blocked that guy...I have no names in my list of friends except my husband's; so I am sometimes caught unguarded when these pop-ups just appear in no time.
Yes, I think that I should be more vigilant. Thank you.
Tell him to look in the mirror when he uses his street language, apparently he has no self respect!

your so called best friends do not pick up their phones anymore, or give lame excuses when you ask them out for a coffee; on the other hand they post photos in social media where they are in bar, and they did not even give you a call [not even to return the favor of you asking them out.]

How do you define 'ugly people'? How do you react when you meet them?Everyday we meet people who don't listen, just talk about themselves. People who either turn other way or pretend you are not there when you say 'hello'. People who constantly put you down. People who believe they are better or...

How do you react when someone steps in line in front of you at the store?When I was at the store the other day, I had baby in my arms and I was struggling to pull out my wallet to pay for the pack of socks I picked out for the baby. The register next to me opened and the lady looked at me and told...
