    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...

    It Was Time

    I decided to go through my circle. I have been here almost a year, I  had a large circle but few if any really spoke to me. I have met some really great people here, if you are no longer in my circle it is because you never talked to me, or I had tried to speak to you but...

    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...

    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...

    If you added me, I accepted. Doesn't mean I'm into messaging. As I've stated, I'm very rarely going to message people. And usually it's more girls than guys. Nothing personal :)
