I Wish People Would Tell Me Why They Were Addding Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 224 People

    Um..

    Do you honestly expect me to add you to my circle just because you added me to yours? No, not happening. I'm not interested in being a number, someone's agony aunt, and so forth. What I do want are friends, true friends, kay?

    This Is Creeping Me Out A Little!

    Im a newbe to EP' i only joined a couple of weeks ago if that? But there are some things that creep me out a little. I really like the random questions where you answer the craziest of stuff, and even ask a few wacky questions yourself. When i read some of the answers people have...

    Huh?

    I have had many people wanting to add me never having commented on my stories or contacting me in any way. I ask myself why in the world are they adding me as a friend if we've had no friendly contact whatsoever? Not adding you...

    Why?

    Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? So, you see, I want to know, 'why'? What did you read or see that made you decide to add me? What did I say, what did I do, what did you hear? =/ I get people who I have 0 experience matches with and they've become my fan, why? O_o I'd really...

    It Would Be Nice...but Its Not Going To Happen...

    It would be nice to know why people add me, but I know that is not going to happen, because all day, everyday people add me, who I have never had any contact with, but if they would read my profile would see that if we had no contact, don't add me, but hey, people on here do...

    Why Did You Add Me?.

    I only recently started adding people and for the most part I only add females, since I'm a female, and I'm not here to hook up. I only add only people after I've read their stories, comment on their stories and I feel a connection to them. I only accept requests from people...

    I Wish People Would Tell Me Why They Add Me

    I say why I add people it's because they have enough in common with me.  I won't add fans that have no stories or experiences.   I wish others would say why they add me.

    Why Oh Why

    I always get people adding me, and keep getting the "you have a new fan" email. But why? Do these people like my stories, experiences, or just like to stalk me?Ah the mysteries. At least they should introduce themselves! x

    Strange...

    sometimes I get friend requests from strange people who have nothing in common with me, plus if you have like 100 or 200 friends in your list I probably won't add you because I don't want to be a number in somebody's list and I don't want my list to grow either to show that I am...

    Not Hot Under The Collar About It

    I just want to know from people who take me on as fan just what it is that we have in common. I want to know what brought me to their attention. I want to know what I did or said that they liked. Sometimes what prompts it is I made a comment on their story. I've made hundreds...

    It *would* Be Nice

    I think people add me for a number of reasons. One person seems to add everyone on EP. I think he wants to have the most friends of anyone. I seem to attract young people, and I take that to mean they like what I write. Either that or they are bait trying to trap pederasts or...
