Hey, most of you have been great.
Thanks, for the supportive e-mails.
I know that what happened wasn't very cool. But was a eye opener.
Most of you have said for me to chock it up as a learning ordeal.
Really I'm not as upset as it seemed in my last post.
I am just going to have to adjust my habits a bit.
I'm thinking of having a friend or couple along for meetings . just to watch my back.
Problem is, I dont know anyone here. other than that couple I met a couple weeks ago.
Good idea or bad??
And if it's a good idea I wonder who and how to make it happen .

I think you should make some friends and then try the couple thing again. Then you will have someone you can call or bring along. If you need to make some friends I'm available. Good luck!

That's not a bad idea... though I don't know if it would help you in that particular situation. Here are a couple ideas, though...

One is, you could have a safety valve... you have a friend (they could be anywhere) that knows the address where you're going, the name of the person you're going to be with, and a time after which they should be concerned if they haven't heard from you. When that time arrives, they call your cell phone, and if they don't get an answer, they call someone else (the police, perhaps?).

The main thing however, is to be in control of the situation. If something happens that makes you uncomfortable, get up and leave... And ask a few more questions up front...
