I’m trying to balance my own safety with making an honest/genuine connection and I’ve read, often, that giving your real: name, phone number, etc. isn’t advised for safety reasons. However, it feels strange to have a relationship with someone and not have them know your real info. Also, if we end up travelling together he’s going to find out, and know a lot more! I would take lying from an SD as a red flag so it seems a bit hypocritica for me to lie, myself. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience as to how they balance safety and honesty? Or any opinions from an SD? Thanks.
