Although young folk today don't have any compunction using social media to solve their "instantaneous" needs.
They view the internet
as a connection to 6 billion people and someone out there will help. or not...
I have a real a-hole buddy. He was working a party hitting on all these married women - I mean direct, "Do you wanna hook up?" stuff. First I told him he was an incorrigible a-hole. Then I asked him if it ever worked. He said if you don't knock on the door no one will ever answer. (and yes it works about as good as any other method, according to him...)
Oh - They also get the world. A girl seeks a ride - you are into it. Her boyfriend shows up and now it's a scam? Hmmmm....
Late leaving Roppongi taxi drivers didn't pick up Gaijin males. We'd send the girls out to flag down a cab and then we'd all jump in.
Bottom line is that the internet
is a wild jungle - be cautious...
