On this site I get older guys ranging from 18 to 40 messaging me on here. I don't understand why. I don't put myself out there to get some attention. I usually just ask and answer questions with no intent of getting anyone to message me. It's fine if people do, but I'm confused as to why a lot of them are older.
Do they not look at my age before they talk to me? Do they think I'm naive because I'm young. Do they not know that their intentions (usually sex) could result in legal issues for them?
I wouldn't be wondering if it were people who weren't calling me sweetie and honey and all these pet names. It's just strange that they'd message me at all considering I'm under 18 unless they really REALLY wanted some advice from a question, and they hardly ever do.
Do you think I'm getting them because they think they can get sex out of me, or because... I don't really know any other reason actually. What do you think?

Yes, they are aware of your age, and maybe they are hoping for a cheap thrill. Younger people are easier to manipulate and more trusting in general, especially when facing someone much older. If they are truly trying to arrange a meetup, then they do know it is illegal, but they assume (like most criminals) that they will not get caught. Best thing to do is ignore and block. I am also sorry to say, "Welcome to the internet." It sucks for women of all ages.1
