Re: Does anyone else get weird when someone asks, "Where are you from?"

I've had my share of Home Crazies so now I'm careful of who I befriend.

I personally only give age sex and state that all I not like they can do much with it unless they know what you look like or city you live. I do respect people that don't give that out. The other day some you want free stuff. I said ok they said give me your password and email and I said no Ty and good bye. I wasn't falling for that at all and I could of reported them for solicitation of information but I didn't but they did leave

I don't mind telling people, dosen't bother me too much. I don't mind giving my county for my state either. Usually people turn away and ignore me when I ask them to hop on down for some hopscotch.. oh well.

You're obviously not careful enough as you DID add me. Oh hindsight is always 20/20 isn't it?

I know they are just making conversation, but I feel weird telling someone where I am, even if it's just the state.  Is there any reason why I shouldn't tell someone what state I'm in, or is it all just silly?

 

Is it rude to not answer?


Not at all.  As with any online activity, it's up to you how much personal information you wish to share.  (And don't forget the TOS specifically prohibits sharing too specific of details such as phone #'s, etc.)  There are many users that know where I am from, yet my standard answer to a stranger has become to say something silly, like Chiron Beta Prime.  Hopefully it makes them laugh.  If not, well...

 

On the flip side, who wouldn't want to make friends that actually do live near them?  Granted with the sheer amount of Home users, any random person you meet is pretty unlikely that they happen to live in your own town.

lol yes.. And I usually tell them I am from the planet tyche or pluto. It usually ends the conversation on the spot but a few good ones just laugh and start talking about something else.

That's how us true New "Jersey-ians" do it.
