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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,168 People

    Also I do not reply to people

    I Don't

    I get a fair amount of friend requests but I don't add people to my circle just because they add me.If we have nothing in common I won't add someone.  If they never comment on a story of mine, I will not add them.Also, if the person is a member of a bunch of sexually-oriented...

    I Won't Do It

    If you add me to your circle I will check out your profile before I add you to my circle. If I lread your profile and see that we have nothing in common, no shared experience groups, or you are interested in groups that I am not interested in, then I will not add you. It's as...

    I don't add men... I'm married.

    I don't private message men. We can all talk in the public pages just fine without being buddy buddy. My Life is simpler with only female friends.

    I know there are several people

    who have added me to their circle, but haven't received my "acceptance". I hope they and anyone else who would think of adding me in the future takes time to read this. I am not the only one here saying that I don't want to get a huge circle of "friends". If you wish to be in my...

    I am not looking for quantity.

    I desire quality in my circle. I want to connect with people, and I welcome messages. The experience project has been a place where honesty is what I value and display - and I understand that isn't for everyone. I often remove fans. I also reserve the right to remove anyone from...

    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 dont add men at all

    as they all only want to talk about one thing and most start off by sending me inappropriate pictures, I will add most females and Transgenders but only after I have checked their profiles

    I actually need to feel like our conversations

    can go beyond small talk if not then you'll never get into my circle unless you're there to listen or read my story's. Its not i dislike people who can't go beyond small talk but i need more then just a hello to want to have you on my list and talk.

    I wouldn't blindly start associating with

    Nope. I want to have a decent conversation with

    do not text me, do not make me have to block and or report you. And if you are unable to understand the above, please don't whine too much when you find yourself blocked and or reported.

    I think last time I checked I had,

    in EP Terms 2000 "Fans" (people who have added me to their circle) BUT I've always kept my circle small - never over 10 people. I have to take an interest in your or consider you a friend - and as most people know, I'm picky as ****

    I don't like having people in my circle

    who don't ever talk to me so I add people I relate to as well as talk to. I have a very limited circle right now but it would be cool to have it expand. Everyone in my personal circle I communicate with via message or frequent experience commenting.

    The amount of people

    that just randomly add others surprises me. I mean, what's the point of adding people you haven't even talked to, or will never talk to. And then when you go to their profile and see, they've added 20-ish people in a matter of 10 minutes. Wow. Aha this isn't Facebook/Instagram...

    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?

    Why not comment my stories or something first?  Get to know someone before you just add them to your circle.  And like most of the other females in this group, I'm more selective with males.
