      I don't , mainly because my parents have drilled that into me since I was a small child. Most of the time I just look through the window to see who it is, if its someone I don't know I don't open it. Sometimes if I'm expecting a parcel or something I will ask through the door who it is.
      Anyone else do this, or am I the only one?
      I rarely open the door, mostly because I'm pretty unsociable and there's always a worrying thought at the back of my mind it's a family member who's come to see my parents unexpectedly but would still talk to me. If I can see it's someone with a parcel, I'll answer it. Tbh, my parents often don't bother answering the door so that's where I've got it from.

          When I was about nine I read a story in 'Mizz' magazine about a teenage girl who opened her front door to a 'gas man' who then locked her in the downstairs toilet and proceeded to burgle the house! it scared me

          The girls will say no because they're weak and pathetic, and the guys will say yes. Simple.
