How do I ask my friend on Discord more about themselves without looking or sounding creepy? - July 20th 2019, 12:40 AM

My friend is 13, currently enduring a pretty toxic home environment, and I want to help her, but I donít even know her real name. I only know her age, and that she lives in the states. Sounds sketchy, I know, but hear me out. I want to get her out of there, but I donít know how I can do That without knowing more about her. And I donít want to sound like a creep or ask her questions she might not be comfortable answering, like what state she lives in. How should I go about this?

Sorry to hear that your friend is living in a toxic home situation. I understand you want to help her and without any 'real' information, that can be difficult. Is it possible that you can talk to your friend and ask her to tell a trusted professional e.g. teacher or counsellor what's going on at home? They'll have a duty to look into it and help your friend.

It can be difficult hearing about your friend's situation and it must be hard feeling helpless. But as you realise, trying to ask for personal information can make you look 'shady' even if you want to help. You don't want to end up getting yourself into trouble when you only had good intentions.

It's good that you want to support your friend and I hope that she does reach out to someone who can help her. Make sure you look after yourself too!
