I have requirements for online friendships on EP.
My list isn't intended to offend people; it is intended to advise people on what I expect in order for an online friendship to occur.
1. You must have written at least a few stories.
(So I know your perspective on a few things.)
I will be happy to be your friend.
I will be honored to be your trusted advisor.
If my advice is not to your liking, I will not be offended when you choose a different route in your situation, and you can still ask for my advice in the future.
I am the sort who is more...
