Excellent point! I noted a long time ago that John Gorman puts his phone number in his profile online and encourages people to reach out. Could you only imagine what would happen if that happened.

I actually had a reader make a very kind gesture that freaked me out to the absolute core. I wrote about how my ex-husband never gave me flowers. Two days later, this man I did not know had googled me, found my address and sent flowers. Sweet sentiment but he will never know how his simple kindness terrified me. It made me realize anyone could find me. And with all the misogynistic comments I get, the fear felt very real…
