    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    It's Awesome But...

     It is awesome when I get new random fans but I always wonder why. call it an ego boost or whatever but I really would like to know why you add me to your circle, I would love to know what I have done to earn a spot in your circle.

     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 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

    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.

    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...
