Just keep in mind that you can never fully trust anyone. ESPECIALLY when it comes to certain . . . topics. For example, don't let random people on the internet "show you the ropes" of anything sexual in nature, no matter how much you think you trust them (especially if you are underage!! That should already be a given). While I'm sure there are people who would have good intentions, if you get mixed up with the wrong people, they can attempt to groom you and push you in a very wrong direction, like trying to tell you certain things are "perfectly normal/acceptable" when they actually aren't. If you're in doubt, do some research or get second opinions. This can seriously save you from being manipulated into doing things you'll regret later on (and these kinds of people can try to use against you). This hasn't only happened to me but I've also heard about it happening to other people too, so I'd like to prevent people from getting messed up and having to live with that for the rest of their lives . . . You have to always be looking out for yourself first, it may sound selfish but it can really save you from getting hurt sometimes. People can try to use pity cards on you or guilt trip you and whatnot (multiple people have done this against me) to make you feel bad for them or prevent you from bailing from something. Like, honestly, I've noticed a pattern that if anyone comes to you and right away says something to the effect of "no one ever wants to be friends with me", there may be a good reason why. At least this is based on my own experiences as well as stories I've heard from friends / other people.
