1) I never give anyone my full name or cabin number until I am certain I want to get to know them better ... nothing like an unwanted fellow passenger latching onto you ...2) I rarely if ever tell my "life history" mainly because it's a sad one and immediately brings people down - I spare strangers my tragedies, my health and definitely my sex life. 3) I often wear outfits I wouldn't normally wear or experiment with my hair and 4)sometimes if I am traveling with my 6"3 adult son, I tell people he's my bodyguard less they think he's a mama's boy at age 33 traveling with his mother lol.
