I Dont Like It When People Add You But Never Communicate

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,181 People

    I have to admit I don't get

    why people do this either. Maybe they add me thinking one thing and then realize I'm nothing special? :-) Anyway, I think I'll use this as the criteria for shrinking my circle.

    Lurkers Lurking

    I enjoy communicating with people in my circle and do not care much for those who lurk for the sake of watching and not adding their voice at all.Lurkers are far to quite and do not add to the culture of being online. People who do not talk comment or answer are a risk because...

    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...

    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.

    If you add me, please send me a message

    so I know you're interested in actually talking to me and getting to know me. I'm very approachable. :) and sorry whoever I've added and haven't talked to :P I'm kinda bad with it too to be honest.

    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...

    Reshuffling

    I keep checking my friends added with me in my circle and delete friends who are just added with me but we never talk, they are online and do not reply my pm's. That is very rude and I don't like it. The logic is if we do not talk then y are we in the same circle DAAA

    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...

    It'S Kind Of Annoying

    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.

    even adding someone, if you don;t talk to them at all, t's just annoying tbh. It's like on facebook people send you friend requests, you accept but they don';t talk and dont even reply

    I don't really see the point.

    It just tells me that they either just wanted to look at my pics or collect friends in their circle. To me, it's pretty much like Facebook, except on there people don't add you unless they know you. And if they do know you and add you, some don't bother to reply back. That's...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    and stares like they want to talk but get up and walk out without ever saying anything. Creepy too I suppose you could say.
