I read this article "Man Steals Woman's Car on First Date" over the weekend and the first thing that came to mind after reading this was, she must of been really desperate for a date because she didn't even know the guy's name before she accepted a date with him. She only knew him by a nickname. Is that the only name he gave her or did she even ask for his first and last name?
To me it's just common sense to get at least the basic information before you accept a date or agree to meet someone new. She's lucky that's the only thing that happened and that the police caught him. Ladies just can't wear rose colored glasses when meeting someone new. You can still have fun while staying safe, you just need to be aware and be informed.
