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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,538 People

    Why? Well when someone adds me to their

    circle I take the time to check out their profile. If there is anything I see there which catches or ‘grabs’ my attention then they are definitely in. But all too often, all I find a very long list of chosen experiences… but no written actual experiences. A large number...

    I won't add someone that I've never spoken to

    before or never comments or even reads my stories. If they can't take the time to get to know me then why add them as a friend? Also, the profiles with no stories and little content and lots of mature content. Sorry, but I'm not adding you. I will make an exception sometimes if...

    Just because you have added me does not mean I

    will add you to my circle of friends. I want to know others before adding them. Also, before I add others, I look at their profile and experiences. If I see experiences that are not what I enjoy I will not add you. Any sexual perversions by perverts here will be blocked by...

    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 can't see why should I, and I'm not excepting everyone who I "fan" to add me as a friend. To me the thing about adding people is that it is easier to keep up with what they have written lately that way. People who seem to have interesting lives to share in their stories or...

    Hi. A kind gesture, if you intend to add me to

    your circle, please ask me first. I don't like random strangers adding me to there circle. I am very picky on experience project. I am a genuine individual, I expect likewise.

    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...

    It's funny that it tends to be the perverts

    who add me to their circle. Then they'll send a message: "Hi" "Hey" "Wassup" or some one-or-two-word variation of those. They have a raging sense of entitlement when it comes to the people on this site adding them back. With me, I feel that you really have to PROVE yourself...

    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...

    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.
