I Don't Add People to My Circle Just Because They Add Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,648 People

    Sorry, but I don't! I did add back a lot

    when I'd just joined but then I found they were "friend collectors" who didn't interact or they were after dirty chat (which I'm definitely not!) so I've shrunk my circle a lot and I'll only add people back if we talk on Q+A or a story and I like you.

    I don't even add half the people

    who add me. I check profiles first. I'm not adding anyone who seems like a total creep or someone who is into anything weird. I'm not here for that.

    someone on the street, it takes a concerted effort to prove it's worth the time and emotion to add a connection.

    Don't take it personally.

    Just because I get a notification

    that you became a fan, does not mean I am going to do the same, and become friends. I feel friends should be age appropriate. I am not going to friend someone who is 12-13 years old.

    Especially those near

    or over 30 years of age. I am not comfortable being friends with men, much older than me. I will also not add women of 30yrs of age or over. I am very much more comfortable talking to people around my age. If you have added me and fit these ages do not expect an add from me

    I started out just politely adding most of the

    people who added me to their circles to be nice. I am now realizing that there are some people I don't feel comfortable adding, and so I am going through my list and revising it.

    I like to chat about a wide range of things

    and if you suddenly add me without notice, that's ok, but I may not wish to reciprocate. A chat first is always helpful both sides understanding where the other is coming from.

    If your 40-50 year old i don't add you in my

    It's not even meant in a mean way.

    If people who add me have similar groups, I'll probably add them, too, but if not, I'd like them to message me first. Also, I won't respond if someone doesn't say "Hi" at least.

    I don't understand the people

    that add you to their circle, when they haven't even responded to any of my topics. doesn't mean I'm going to add you. and most of them are men, with strange topics they want to talk about. I ammmost likely going to block those people.

    I believe in getting to know someone

    before blindly adding to my circle. It tends to stay small because people come and go so often. I will not add someone just because they add me in first 10 min. Those tend to never work out for the best.

    I do not understand why people randomly add's

    you to their circle without ever talking, saying a word to that person. And some who never writes anything, is it just to show off, "hey, i got alot of people in my circle, talk to me!" what is the point of adding someone that you never have or will talk to?
