I seem to say whatever is on my mind? I think so I says it?

I would share my values and beliefs with someone I’ve only known 5 minutes.

What are the social rules to keep myself safe and precautions?

How do I change myself from giving away too much personal information?

And am I supposed to talk about?

I try to keep my mouth shut.

My bride would probably say I'm not as good at that as she would like. :roll:

everybody has their own idea. there's impersonal information. personal information. 'sensitive' information. and then after that there's maybe 'top secret' information. its about who has 'clearance.' It's a need to know thing. It's a subjective choice what you decide to disclose to somebody.

I refrain from being around people. Works like a charm!


Oh, double masking and social distance helps too when I absolutely need to leave the house.

You said many things in your first post. But my response is to the title of this thread: "What are your precautions when you are around people?" My response is what I personally try to do to have fewer problems when I talk to other people--a solution for you might be different.

But I will note you specifically said "precautions". It sounds like you wish to be more careful.

I often suspect I have overshared after I have a conversation - I'm a devil for going over conversations over and over after they've finished and trying to work out where I have failed to come across as 'normal'.

As a precaution to this I generally don't talk much.

I will rehearse conversations I know I'm going to have, try to pre-empt likely questions and work out how I might answer, where the boundaries might be.

In public I often wear earphones (even if I'm not listening to anything) because it stops strangers surprising me with talk.
