Many years ago, my mother gave me some advice I not only think of often but live by, sometimes foolishly.

“When you meet a strange man, dear, don’t fear him immediately. Use caution, but acknowledge that man is the only predator that at times has designs on us other than cruel ones. Some men are actually quite pleasant, and he might be someone who wishes you well, or someone who’s fearful of the feelings he holds for you, or simply a man who is afraid of himself and needs company. In any case, at least talk to him, give him a chance, unless it’s dark and late and you are alone or he has a gun or displays a clearly twisted vision. You can relieve a great deal of suffering in the world by the kindness of at least talking to strangers.”
