    Indeed, I Do! It's True!!

    After reading a new friend of mine's story I thought that I should write about this as well. This is very annoying to me. I hate when I add someone, we talk for a few days, then all of a sudden there is nothing ever said, no gestures, WB posts, etc. After awhile I remove people...

    Yep

    I really do hate it...........................I'm constantly cleaning people out of my circle for this very reason. I'm here to meet like minds, get to know people, and share. I want people in my circle who do the same.

    If We Don'T Speak What'S The Point?

    If I end up deleting you from my circle it's because we never speak. I don't see a point in us being friends if we don't even communicate with each other in one form or another. If you are just trying to build up your numbers I won't even bother adding you to my circle. I would...

    It is kind of pointless.

    why would you add someone or accept them without having the intention or having the decency to talk?

    I am new to this, so perhaps I am too anxious.

    I have been added to a number of people's circles but have never heard from them. I don't understand why they would want to follow me if you haven't taken the time to get to know me. Perhaps I am overthinking the process.

    This goes for everything.

    But who is really to blame? is the newly added mute that we assume are conversation starters? Or is it our own oblivious ignorance and inability to cough a simple hello? i think we are often worse then the people we accuse of never talking.

    Annoying Or What?!

    I really don't like it when people add you and then just totally ignore you all the time like you're invisible. I always find myself having to talk to them all the time, they make no effort back. That's why I deleted a load of people who added me but never spoke. If people are...

    If You Don't Want To Talk, Why On Earth Would You Add Me?!?!

    This really frustrates me! Why would you add someone if you had no intention of EVER having a conversation with them? I understand you might not be able to message every day or even every week, but if you've been my friend for 4+ months and haven't expressed any desire to chat, I...

    Lurkers Lurking

    Personally I think people add me only

    because that is the only they can view my pictures. Once they see my pics and don't like what they see, I never hear from them.

    This and todays shallow definition of the word

    friends is why I do not add anyone who doesn't measure up over time. Im not here as a Fakebook collector. I will converse with you. But dont expect to be an instant edition.

    What are they trying to prove, whats the point?

    Why do people add people as friends but never talk to them? Friends are for being friends, not a status simple by who can have the most! Example; I went through a phase a few years back on facebook. I messaged all my "friends" and said a general message, how are you, whats new in...

    But I don't really care. It's dumb to go around adding people just to see what they are up to. Why not just talk to them and you'll find out a lot more.
