He says he will have a chat with me about it (Uh Oh!) when he gets back. This means a long lecture about showing him the swaps I want to do, not telling anyone else the address I am using... etc etc.
His problem is also that we are gonna have to pay a lot, but I am sure I can look out for swaps that have people from the UK in. the PO box proved too expensive.

as a parent of a 12yr old, I can understand and quite agree with his concerns  Wink   there are quite a few other people around here from across the pond, so chances are you'll be swapping in no time  Cheesy

people made some good suggestions on this thread when it was asked before - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107777.0;all

i honestly don't worry, but i think i have a different attitude about it. while, yes, there are scary people out there, it seems like a huge waste of their time to go to all the trouble to be eligible to swap just to get someone's address, when they could just pretend to be a teenager on a chat forum or something, like you read about in the news. i think craftster's pretty safe. obviously, if your address was being posted publicly somewhere, that would be a concern.

thats why i have a po box.  lame i know but i live at home with my parents (actually, i'm constantly moving in and out of the house...also a reason for the po box) and i'd rather not have people know my mum's address.

Now I feel a tad creepy. I save addresses of people I've gotten to know here so I can send them random gifts. Am I creepy?  Huh

I do the same thing.  I have saved most of the addresses of people I have swapped with.  I have thought about sending small gifts, but don't want to appear CREEPY Tongue

i save addresses too but thats just ebcause i want to be able to remember who i've sent to incase my mail gets lost tot htem or if its an ongoing swap, i already have tehir details so i dont have to ask for it again.

i'd only send little gifties if i know the person really well after talking to them a whole bunch and such as they agree to it.
