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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,117 People

    Nothing Personal

    I just like to have some interaction with members before adding them to my circle. If I get an invite out of the blue I usually do not return in kind. It's just a personal preference. :) Sometimes I'll write a blog and set it to friends only. I don't want "freinds only...

    Not Big On Adding Just Anyone

    My circle has been looking rather sad lately but then again I was away from EP for some time and have only been writing up a storm recently. I've noticed the increase in number of fans but do not add unless I've browsed through the profiles and read up on their experiences...

    Please Give Me A Reason

    I don't want that friendship where we add each other and never speak again. It always feels cruel to remove someone from the circle due to this, and for some odd reason, it bugs me when I have too many friends. If you wish to be friends, it would be great if you had a reason. I...

    Long Lost Love

    When I was sixteen I fell in love with this guy. He had to move and I was forced to move on. When he came back I told him I wanted to be alone because of the painful separation and did not want to go through that pain again. Now after 23 years I never got over him. He contacted...

    Please Don't Be Offended If I Don't Add You

    I agree, I will not add people to my Circle just because they added me, I myself will not be offended if they don't add me and I hope they will not be either.

    I Apologize In Advance.

    No matter how many times I receive friend requests, I am always flattered by each one of them. I do look at their profile.  What I'm most interested in is how many experiences and friends we have in common.  After that I look at the types of stories that they have...

    To Add Or Not To Add...that Is The Question

    By no means am I saying everyone is a troll. This is actually a positive message. Some think that just sending an add 'gets you in' to my small circle.  Nope.  That sounds too much like facebook behaviors. Please communicate in some fashion as to 'why' you think we belong in...

    Like everyone else, I have some people on my

    profile that I haven't added. One of the most common reasons that most of them haven't been added to my circle of friends; not having enough things in common. The other is that after thoroughly checking out their profiles, I tend to find out something about them that totally...

    I Don'T Add Everybody.

    I used to have another profile that simply grew too big for me to keep up with. As flattering as it is to have thousands of "fans", I would rather like a small circle of people that actually has special meaning to me, and have time to interact with. If you add me I will look...

    I do not immediately add people to my circle. You need to earn that. So please don't be offended if I don't immediately add you. It's just I have enough fake people in real life that I am choosy as to who I converse with on here. I will block people who are disrespectful...

    Friends. Or Just In My Circle?

    I sometimes wonder, why did this person join my circle? When members 'friend' me I check out their profile. No profile, no add. I check how long they have been a member, then I look to see what trophies's they have for commenting. If, for instance a person has been a member for...

    Sometimes I have 1 or 2 good chats with people

    and we agree to add each other to our circles. It happens many times that after adding them a week or two can go by with no contact at all. If that happens I just remove them from my circle. No point in having an inflated list of friends if we have no contact.

    There are several vacancies in my circle of friends, since my recent drastic cropping. If you wish to apply you will need to have: 1. A full profile.   2. You must have written at least one story. 3. You need to have read a few of my stories so that you understand a little...

    But unless there's some common ground, I'm not going to return the favor.  I look at groups, interests, and stories.  It's very VREY unlikely I'm going to add someone whose entire list of interests are XXX-rated.  If they have made a couple good comments on my stories I'll...

    I found out that we can post pictures

    that will be visible to friends only, so I'll probably do that sometime. I'll have to remember that I posted the pictures before adding people from then on.. I don't want strangers to know who I am. Some people are just creepy anyway.
