Now, I know this might not be the best place to ask, because there isn't exactly a place to ask this type of question. I've been seeing a lot of "I need a boyfriend" in the game chats. They may not phrase it like that but everyone knows what they are saying. Anyways, It worries me because we all know there are bad people out there who would like to hurt people, whether your a little boy or girl, to grown ups. Everyone is at risk and there are people on the game who can so easily be a boyfriend who is 50 years old. Let me give you an example: I can pretend to be the same age as the girl who wants a boyfriend. We get closer and she tells me where she lives and all that. cause there are ways to get around the chat system, we all now that its not perfect. I show up and boom, I could be a 50 year old man and snatch the girl up and run. It's that easy, and it scares me. I'm 17 and I've seen kids from middle school, to high school with children. It may not be the same, but its to young and here I see girls and boys occasionally asking for a boyfriend or girlfriend. They have to be desperate or not thinking clearly to be asking on a game which makes them vulnerable. Question is: What should I do. I wanted to report it, but I'd like to be safe and keep my account. I'd like to do something, because it may seem unlikely, but it can happen. Anyone could be sitting at the other end of the computer and you guys and gals might just blow it off, but if you ever found out that you could have done something to save someones life or prevent them having to care for a child, it make you feel terrible. I would feel horrible. So like I asked, what do I do. What can we do to help stop it.

Is this something that should be reported? Especially since it could be a not so nice person saying that he/she wants a girl friend/boy friend.

Yeah, that's dangerous. But there was once this one stupid guy saying, "I need a girl" by Morgan Lafitte, so he obviously didn't get how it worked.
