Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 75 People

    Sometimes It's Necessary

    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...

    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...

    If you add me to your circle, I'll read your experiences. If I think we have something in common, then I'll add you. If we don't, I won't.
