    Better Safe Than Sorry

    I am a reader, and I've read many times in magazines about people not locking their doors, then surprise surprise, there is an intruder in their house. I do not want that to happen to me, so I lock my doors. Call it paranoid, I call it being safe!

    I live in a good area

    but just feel safer when the doors etc are locked. It often doesn't occur to those around me to lock up, even when we're all asleep!

    I have a habit of locking the front

    and back door every time i use them so people often get mad at me because i always lock them out. Its like a natural reflex for me to lock it.

    Would love to chat to any women about anything. You can't beat having a female companion to talk to. And I am rubbish at keeping my self occupied when I am home alone. Help :)
