I Check Out Your Profile Before I Add You

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,633 People

    Its nothing personal.

    I just check to see who you are as a person, what you like, and with this I decide if I should bother. Which, as it turns out, I usually dont. ~ Lys ♪

    Who The Frig Just Added Me To Their Circle.

    When I see a new Fan I always take the time to read their page. I look at your Groups your Stories your Friends and how you market yourself on EP. I am only looking for platonic friends. The number of friends I have does not concern me I would much rather have quality friends who...

    To be honest I barely

    even do it anymore, I add almost anyone but I'll only talk to some people. The amount of people that I'm willing to talk to on a regular basis is maybe less than 5. If you make me uncomfortable I don't talk to you, and it takes A LOT to make me uncomfortable. If you act like an...

    Hey EPers... I take a look at profiles

    before adding anyone...I'm not here to run up a big collection of people that are "friended" as if I were collecting Beanie-Babies !.. I don't want a Bf, and I'm not looking for "Mr. Right'... not even "Mr. Right Now ". I enjoy talking with people with similar tastes, likes and...

    I always give people I add the courtesy of a PM

    to let them know why I did and what I found interesting about them. If you would like to be in my circle, please shoot me a note and let me know why. There see to be too many people that just like to collect friends without any connection.

    I always make the mistake of accepting the

    message before checking the profile. I should really check your profile before adding someone or messaging them..

    I think it's the best thing to do on here.

    I've noticed some people adding me and checked out their profiles... Wow. Way too extreme for me but to each their own. Just not for me. So I check all profiles before adding and if it's clear we would never interact because we are just not in the same galaxy of understanding...

    ..I get in adding moods where I will just add a bunch of people. I don't really care what you have in your profile, only that you are an active participant. On that note, if you message me when I am not online I am just not going to read it...nothing personal but it is easier...

    But it's because I actually want to interact with my friends on EP. And when I say interact...I do not mean...skype...or cyber...or have phone sex. *rolls eyes* I want to read your stories...and get to know you as a person...and I want you to read my stories...and get to know me...

    I do the same. And also

    when someone messages me, that way I'll know what I have in common with that person in both cases plus I'll have a good idea of what we're going to be chatting about.

    My requirements are easy: 1.

    You need to have logged in within the past month - I only want active friends 2. You have a handful of mutual groups as me - I'm here to discuss the things that interest me 3. You have written at least a few stories - if you don't write it's difficult to know you

    before I add you. Sometimes I will even check out your profile before I heart a comment you posted. This is a decision I made not long after joining EP and I have tried to stick by it. It is mostly to avoid negative people and perverts. I will also check out your circle. If you...

    One of the things I look

    for when adding a person on EP or any other social media site is how the person speaks. If they use a lot of bad grammar and profanity I might not want to add them. But of course occasional grammar mistakes and occasional profanity are okay sometimes. If they talk l1ke dys I...

    I am not interested in chatting with men

    who add children to their circle. It's strange to me when grown men are eager to fill their home feed with experiences of children they don't know. You might feel innocent about it, but it makes me uncomfortable that you seek connections with girls as young as 13. And only girls...

    I will not add you if you have any nudes/explicit photos and stories. Also I do not date older men. So don't even bother messaging me if you are 30-50+ unless you are a nice guy or girl not a pervert. I'm not lesbian or bi i'm straight. Also I will never send out nudes. And if...

    When messaging someone on EP,

    do you say they're beautiful because you think they have an amazing personality and you've taken the time to read their stories on here? Or do you hope for the best that the person you're talking to is remotely attractive and will feel the same way about you? Don't tell me I'm...
