      I once thought nothing of starting a conversation with a perfect stranger on pulic transportation, but now people get all weirded out as if you’re a stalker. The only people willing to have a face to face now are the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons which means it won’t be a spontaneous exchange ie., agenda free. Yet, it’s perfectly okay to do the same via Fb or G+ and some people will even go out of their way to meet strangers they only met online. What a crazy a… world.
