Of 1,200 adults interviewed between Jan. 24 and Jan. 26, 31.9% rated a mate met online as the worst outcome for a daughter, followed closely by someone met in a bar (22.3%) and then a Trekkie (16.1%).
Now this could be interpreted as a bit of misguided fear. Clearly most people online are as harmless as most people in bars. However, a few in both locations are dangerous enough that caution is warranted. But that aside, the good news is that Trekkies rated as the best among the worst. While hardly high praise, it means that Mom & Dad may be on your side Ensign Skippy. Now, if only their daughter would give you the time of day. Too bad she’s online with all the drunk bikers.
