If you find someone who likes the same restaurant as you do and likes the same things as you do. There is a potential that the other person can be a great friend. Do not always think that the other person can be a potential risk. There are quite a lot of nice people who also exist. And as long as you guys are talking about common interests, things are fine.

Always try to stay open minded and listen carefully to what the other person has to say. By listening to others, you will get to learn new things, have a different perspective on your life, and so on. Do not always talk about yourself, give the other person a chance too to talk about himself or herself.

3. Try to find chat rooms that reflect your personal tastes and interests

On the internet, there are quite a lot of stranger chat rooms available. However, it is always a good idea to join a chat room which interests you. Like if you are a techy person, you can join a chat room related to tech, and you will be able to meet people who share the same interests as you do. 

4. Always listen to your gut

Finally, you should always listen to your guy. Most of the time, your gut will only tell you what is right and what is wrong.
