    Should Be Logical Right?

    Yes in fact I read every profile of people that want to friend me. I am flattered every time I get a request, but I am not here to collect people (sparing out the word friend for a reason here) for my profile. Compared to places like Facebook, EP is a place were people interact...

    Just What I Do.

    It's usually nothing against you personally, it's hard to get personal when you don't have any experiences to share lol. All I know is your username, age group and maybe what you look like. I can't go off of that.If your profile is bare or close to it chances are I won't accept...

    Before I add someone to my circle first of all

    I read the profil very well because I want to know which hobbies and with attitude towards life the person has and if we have some common interests. Furthermore there should be some conversation BEFORE accepting as a friend because I want to know if there´s a good chemistry...

    Do I Have To?!!

    Usually we read profiles before we accept a friend's request. But what about if I don't get any friend's request, do I have to?!!!

    Read Before Adding Too

    Even though this group is about accepting a friend's request, for me, it goes to sending adds as well. Just because someone is a pretty girl, and there are many, I don't send an add. That doesn't mean I won't, but I look for legit people. Not everyone needs to add me either. That...

    Regardless of who you are,

    your age, or gender, I reserve my right to read your individual profile before I allow you in my circle of friends.

    Definitely! For me, this is not a place to just

    see how many 'friends' I can get. I'd rather meet people who really matter...not just collect friends.

    Not only do I look at profiles,

    I like to read peoples stories and their activity if not private. Amazing how I can at least form some thoughts as to whether I will even accept an email. Even your username can be interesting, some very creative and funny.

    and if they are bare as in no experiences, I usually think twice about adding you.  At least until I've talked to you a little bit first.

    I Do Now

    I didn't used to..when I first got on this site..I was accepting everyone that added me as a friend or who commented on my stories. Then I started getting messages from them or I would go to their profiles for some reason & see that we had NOTHING in common. Either that or they...

    You don't really even need to read the profile.

    Just check recent activity, 9 times out of 10 there's a list females around my age they've recently added. When did this place become less about feeling validated and more about feeling violated?

    Hidden Recent Activities

    What really puzzles me lately, aside from blank Profiles, are those Profiles which doesn't show their recent actiivties. There are but few who, after adding would find a profile not showing their activities. They have similar groups and also quite a never of friends, just that...

    Before I message back.

    Before I ever add someone to my circle which is why I don't have many people. And I will read through and probably respond to a lot of your stories. Some people find it weird a sort of "stalking" but the stories are there and it's how I'd get to know you. Simple.

    Something To Talk About

    Obviousley people come to this site to talk about their experiences. If we have nothing to talk about then chances are good that I won't add you. I enjoy sharing my stories and reading other's, but who wants to talk about things they aren't interested in. If I look at your...

    If I see we share a lot of experiences, I like the stories and questions you've written or I'm interested in your life story I'll add you to my circle. I don't befriend people just to see the number of friends on my profile raising. And if you send me a friend request I'll take a...

    I Mainly Check Their Experiences To Make Sure They Are Decent

    Some people have just sex-related experiences, for example. Of the dirty kind. I become friends with fans I know are decent based on their experiences. However, I find those members who are about sexual stuff amusing and like to look at their list of experiences. It's too...

    Knowing Who You Are

    I always like to chat to new people, it just gets unnerving when you're always being fanned by other people, and have no idea on where on earth they traced you from. I find a lot of them have a lot of sexual orientated experiences, which I wouldn't mind, but when they have no...
