Just some of the people here love being dramatic and this is just too perfect for them. Some, like Yoda, are acting as if I'm asking her for nudes or something ridiculous like that. I keep my language clean when I do speak to her.
I don't think anyone here thinks you're asking for nudes, but as a parent, were I to find out my daughter had a 9 hour conversation with some guy in his late 20's/early 30's, I'd lose my **** and assume he was trying to seduce her. If he was lucky, the cops would be called. Unlucky, would be me showing up at his door, refusing any explanation and just beating him to death. That's the situation you're putting yourself in here.
And there lies the problem. You would assume. They would assume. Everyone assumes
. I don't have to assume, because I already know I am no harm to anyone.
My stepdaughter has been in a lot of trouble in the past for talking to strange guys on the internet, and, as it turned out, they actually were saying REALLY inappropriate things to her, even knowing she was only 9 years old at the time. That being said, we also don't just assume everyone she speaks to some kind of predator, and no, we aren't simply going to force her to not speak to anyone on the internet anymore because of those two experiences.
I have heard a lot of similar horror stories from other players from my server, and from Bloss/Red herself. Given that, it is probably a lot better she is talking to me instead of the 49 year old she used to talk to who actually did ask her for nudes and was a total perv, or worse.
I completely understand the parent thing. I am a parent. Her 22 year old sister knows I talk to her and as far as I know so do her mom and there is no issue because simply being old does not automatically qualify me as a threat. Right now she is messaging me on Skype telling me about how worried she is about her boyfriend because of some sleeping pills he took and I am assuring her that he isn't going to overdoes on Melatonin and isn't answering his phone because he's exhausted from the two of them being up talking all night. . I am not the slightest bit worried about it because I know I am not saying or doing anything wrong.
