My last name, my social media account (like FB), my work and how much I am getting monthly.

Not that I am ashamed of my last name but more like a preventive measure. I love my name but it just feels so weird when people judge you because they have already searched you online. That is why I am very reluctant to give people my last name and my social media accounts so that they will get to know me personally and not just  judge me based on what I write or share online. :)

I also don't like telling people what I do for a living and how much I am getting monthly. Not that I am ashamed of it again but seriously, why tell a random stranger that crucial info? Even here on Steem platform there are a lot of scammers and phishers, if people know what you do for a living and much more your monthly income, you are just basically shouting "Rob me!" Lol

This is an interesting one i must say. Well, i don't rat out a lot of information about myself. I just think it is unnecessary for me to give a stranger a lot of information about myself on a very first time meeting. I know most people hit it off at their first encounter and release a lot about themselves but i am always a little restrictive on this. I feel like i can only trust people whom i know very well with the information i release to them.

So with me, i feel kind of insecure to release a lot of information about myself with someone i am meeting for the very first time. It just sounds bizarre plus it seems kind of being too mouthy. It passes the wrong information about you to the person. It just kind of makes you look too mouthy and untrustworthy to keep a secret and vital information. A first meeting always draws a lot of first lasting impression.

So on first meetings, i will like to keep things simple, casual and will like to be conservative..

When I first meet a stranger I usually do not tell them where I work and if asked, I usually don't say the truth. This is because most people especially men do not feel comfortable relating with ladies who do my kind of job and ladies also feel that I am weird doing such job so to avoid chasing a potential friend away without them getting the opportunity to know my personality i avoid all talks about my profession.

With time after I'm sure that the person is very comfortable with me and taking a liking to me then I can reveal what I do. Yeah they will say it's weird but then the friendship is too solid for them to want to keep a distance.
