THE #1 DESTINATION FOR PERSONAL PROTECTION TIPS FOR PRETTY POWERFUL WOMEN!
As the owner and founder of She Gadget, Atlanta’s own Jennifer Mackey found it necessary to reach out to educate and empower women’s safety. She Gadget challenges the modern day woman to be “Pretty, Protected and Powerful” because you can be pretty but safe at the same time which makes She Gadget unique with her pretty personal safety gadgets.
She Gadget was started out of Jennifer’s years as a Realtor and she often found herself in dangerous situations. She developed a passion and concern for the safety and the safety of others. Recent headlines serve as a reminder of the dangers that lurk, from robberies at open houses, agents attacked at gunpoint, date rape and relationship violence. Jennifer began conducting seminars and offered resources and tip sheets to teach her peers what safety precautions they can take when showing client’s homes and conducting open houses. She Gadget aims to empower women to be prepared for the unexpected.
Women must become wiser and pay attention to detail. Know your surroundings, always pay attention to the people around you, take extra precautions when going out at night, form a buddy system so that a family member or friend know where you are at all times and importantly, be protected with a gadget such as pepper spray, stun guns or personal alarms.
She Gadget is speaking out to women on safe dating in 2016 and has been featured in several magazines like Our Sexuality, South Fulton Lifestyle, etc. The game has dramatically changed and if you are single and dating in this savvy world you will have to step up your safety game. People are slicker than ever today and you don’t need to waste your time. We must learn to listen, be aware and not be so trusting immediately. Get to know him/her first and have fun. I believe most people will reveal themselves within 30 days if you would just listen to the conversation and get to know one another, but most people don’t. They jump in head first and the figure it out later and that’s when the problem begins because you didn’t know this:
- they are not what you expected
- they are liars,
- they don’t have a job
- they are manipulators
- they live at home with their parents
It’s time to stop wasting your time and keep it real with people. You owe nothing to someone you just met and you have to know you are not in a relationship until both of you make that decisions together. Never assume you are in a relationship until that person ask you exclusively. A lot of people get their feelings hurt because they assumed they were in a relationship just because he/she spent a lot of time with them or spent a lot of money on gifts, dinner, trips and etc., but that means nothing if neither of you sat down and discussed and agreed on the relationship. Be wise for goodness sake and stop letting your guard down as soon as you meet someone.
Follow these 5 great safety tips when you first meet someone:
- trust your instinct—after all, it’s gotten you this far in life already
- Don’t take anything at face value right away
- Ask lots of questions when chatting with your potential mates
- Make sure you feel comfortable with whoever you are chatting with, at all times
- If someone is abusive or rude, stop talking to them and block them immediately
- Don’t give your home or work address to anyone right away
- Before agreeing to a date, make sure you know as much about the other person as possible
- Don’t allow yourself to be talked into anything — you’re the one in charge
- Take your time to get to know someone — don’t be rushed
- Make sure anyone you’re talking to is willing to provide photos and information about himself or herself
- Always meet in a well-lit public place
- If possible, step away and call a friend during the date to confirm that everything is ok
- Always carry a cell phone on a date
- Always make your own travel arrangements to/from a first date
- Do not accept a ride home on the first date or reveal your address
- Keep your first date to a specified time limit so you always have an “exit” point
- Always tell a good friend where you are going and who you’re meeting
- Always let a friend and a family member know who you are seeing and your location
