Do you think there are any?
How would you "know" them if they were predators?
If you were suspicious, what would you do to protect yourself?
Your 54 years old what are you trying to protect yourself from?
I would think if your over 21 you don't have too much of an argument about being predatored upon. I thought sexual predators preyed on juveniles once you become an adult you could rape or get raped. Or you could get into an abusive relationship. You pay your money and take your chances. You can go thru life being paranoid about what your next human encounter may bring. If you do, I think you have some issues that may need some professional help. Then again in every relationship you enter quid quo pro enters into play. Something for something you want something and the other party wants something. So it's wise to try to discern the lay of the land. When I deal with people I always have a purpose I want something if I dont get what I want I move on. If your modis operandi doesnt fit that profile you may have problems. If you don't know what you want at 54 years of age someone might be here or there to take advantage of you. The sexual predators I know of deal with juveniles. I don't see this place being prime hunting grounds for juveniles. 54 year old senior citizens yes, juveniles try my space or some other forums.
Opportunist, now yes they could be here. If someone sends you a personal mail thats your first red flag. What is that personal mail about? Did you know brother so and so. The red flag lowers. But if the personal mail offers you business opportunities, wants financial information, tries to get into your business in any way the red flag goes up and to protect yourself don't respond, dissengage. So if you really want to protect yourself don't respond to personal mails here. If you cant discern a red flag. If you just read the post and respond to the post and dont give your name, address, and phone number you should be ok.
