You have to go with your gut instinct. But, if you;re talking about people pressuring you to reveal personal photos ar data you don't feel comfortable sharing, then I'd say be careful, people have no right to expect you to reveal more than you feel safe with, and if they routinely try to apply pressure, don't deal with them.
When in doubt about someone, don't make yourself vulnerable. You can't always be right, you can't always protect yourself from being hurt or used, but err on the side of safety whenever you're unsure.
It's something you need to figure out yourself. Some might say that 'A' is a fake simply because they don't like 'A' and, in reality, don't know a thing about 'A'. There are those who spend time gossiping about fakes who are likely to be *more* a fake than the person they accuse.
You have to learn to discern, I'm afraid, because it's the only way. The *best* person to find out who's-who is ... You :)
In the context of where you write more information: It doesn't matter what people say about you. You can take the compliments of those who offer them and you can take those who might want to 'dis' you too. It's being in the understanding that those who say 'nice things' may not be who they are ... as much as they may be who they say they are, so you take the comments lightly until such a time you feel you can take them to heart. But however this works for you, encouraging words are *exactly* that. If a person writes something that encourages you, then this is all good because it helps you with your day and how you feel with your day. Bad comments aren't worth bothering with; something you should learn (and *will* learn) to take on the chin. I think this is more about what you write than it is about what you want to give to someone in confidence. Take the compliments for what they are to *you*, take advice for what it is to *you*; you don't need to go any deeper than this unless you want to do; personal contact is a different issue and requires that you be careful in what you are prepared to give away in absolute *trust*. Hoping all goes well with you :) ~F~
You are asking a guy who calls himself a squirrel, and the Squirrel says: Don't worry about it. You are not required to give a detailed review of your life to anyone. Being real does not mean having to air your dirty laundry in public.
Also, if anyone asks for your phone or address over the internet, then that person is a pervy. Better stay away from those folks.
friendship depends on trust . i trust you and i know that u r a nice friend..i dont need your personal details.. i just want you to be happy always
You shouldn't show your own photo, and you shouldn't divulge personal detail easily. Avoid anyone here that is pushing you to do so.
The real fakes here usually let their masks slip eventually. I treat everyone like they're real until they prove me wrong. I just always keep my real personal stuff personal, though.
Then don't reveal your information and just keep everything hidden inside. Other than that, I suppose the only other option is to actually conversant with people. You can determine if they're fake or real by their responds.
only share what you feel comfortable with sharing. i don't post everything and i don't show my picture, but it doesn't mean i'm fake.
i'm glad you didn't post that personal information!!! never post private stuff like that, it doesn't make you fake if you don't.
look if you like someone, then it really doesnt matter if they are so called fake
or really fake?
I am a real ghost all the others that claim such nonsense is not.
assume everyone is fake here unless proven otherwise. You don't have to post anything youre not comfortable with, just be honest in what you do post
Then dont say anything if you dont want to reveal your self unless you can make up a fake persona and stick to it.My guess is you cant because you only have what you have really experienced if life to share w/others.Maybe you are just too worried about nothing.
you are overreacting.Nothing to be scared about.
