These girls did so many things wrong, it's hard to know where to start. First, they're in relationships in which they are deceiving and or keeping information from their boyfriends. Next, they made plans to travel and didn't let anyone know where they were going. Following that, they broadcasted the fact that they were from outside the area, they let everyone know where they could be found, they let everyone know where they were from, and they invited people to approach them by broadcasting their desire to party.
In todays world any information can be too much if the person you are giving it to is a predator. With access to the internet available from virtually anywhere he or she could gain a lot of information in a hurry with very little actually given to them through the conversation.
Obviously there is a lot wrong with this situation. Let's say all of this has happened. At this point, maybe they realize that this wasn't the smartest set of circumstances. A good decision right now would be to alert hotel security. If that helps prevent an unwanted situation, great.
If not, these girls might be eventually educating younger girls on how to be safe as they give testimony to the way their lives were permanently disrupted by the decisions to have a little bit of unsafe fun.
Living and learning comes with experience. Hopefully, they will learn from this experience not to take such chances with complete strangers. I assume nothing bad happened; sometimes people don't get a second chance after making such ill-advised decisions.
These girls are incredibly naive and not very smart. It is not a good idea to give any personal information to anyone you do not know. Even if they look like nice guys you really don't know anything about them. Many girls have been abducted, raped, and/or murdered by not using their heads. It is not worth the chance!
So presumably you are supposed to be learning about keeping safe from guys following you and possibly assaulting you. If so, these girls have pretty much done everything wrong.
In general, if you want to avoid getting in trouble, you do not want to let people know where you are staying and you do not want to let them know if you are alone or practically so.
So, telling their address was a bad idea. Saying they wanted a party was dumb too because if something happened the witnesses would say you were looking for trouble. Saying no one knows your plans is bad because then people think they can abduct you without anyone noticing for a while. Telling people how to recognize your car is bad as well.
Women are more vulnerable to various kinds of attacks from strangers and even not so strangers. Therefore the need to be more careful to avoid such things. But I believe it is wise for everyone including men to avoid giving too mush of unnecessary information to strangers. In most of the cases there is no harm in giving out such information. But then there is no benefit either. But some times such information can lead to trouble. This may happen only in rare cases, but the consequences can be very bad. So why take take chances?
