(3) We know, we know—it's hard to say no to a nice person. But if you're meeting someone online and they offer you food or drink, it's important to be extra careful.
It's common for s*xual predators to try to get their victims drunk so they can take advantage of them. If you meet someone online and they offer you alc*hol or a drink, don't take it. It's too risky!
If this person is kind enough to offer you food or drink, politely decline and ask if there are any other options available instead. For example: "I'm so sorry! I'm not here for long and would love something else."
(4) If you see something that upsets you, talk to someone about it.
If someone sends you a message that upsets you, close it right away and talk to someone about it. Don’t keep it a secret or try to brush it off. For your safety and well-being, it’s important to let someone know what happened. Also, avoid talking with the person who sent you the message any more after that.
