    Why Exactly?

    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?

    Tell Me

     So many people add me and I don't know why. I tried talking to them but it gets to be too much sometimes. Most the EP friends that I do have, I don't even know them. Oh well...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...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...

    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.
