    Several Times

      Every now and again I downsize my circle. I don't really like to do it but there are cases where it is really needed.  Sometimes friends have left, sometimes they just arent online anymore, some became toxic and some our paths and journey's have changed. ...

    Its the Recession!

    Seriously, I had to. Several reasons: I'm not suspicious just a bit private, but once you get to know me I am very open. In real life I have a few close friends that I am compeltely open with (OK, not to the EP degree, well not yet). I hated seeing people in my...

    Fair Enough

    I will have no pleasure with Profiles (people) in my circle who has stories or been commenting to stories for the sake of sarcasms. I love knowing friends about their life and mind, but not on how they treat others with rude commentings. Making and having fun with people's...

    Sometimes It's Necessary

    It starts innocently enough. You add a few people and then a few more and then one day you look and there are people in your circle that not only don't you speak with, you don't even recall adding them. Whats the point in that? For me its much more about quality than quantity...

    Just A Few

    Yes, I just did. The only reason I do so is because I get no interactions from them. I prefer to add someone if we have similar interests and we COMMUNICATE. I only deleted those that I feel that the interaction on EP is one-sided; that is me doing all the talk, comments...

    It's always interesting to learn why someone decides to add you to their circle. Usually if you add me and message me that's one of the first questions I ask.
