Here on ep: We can always get to know one another.
In real life: Well, I got to find out their character first and what they are all about.
I friend anybody that seems normal, or at least not a retard.... Ok and the occasional retard.
I spent the last eight years working with the developmentally disabled, and learned we are all retarded. :)
It is a safe place to meet new people. We all have curiosity about others.
Sometimes, even when someone is very different from me, I want to be their friend because I perceive they have a way of looking at the world that challenges mine,and I value that..there is opportunity to grow.That is why I love this site..there are endless experiences to share and learn. The site "doors" that are absolutely not for me , I can choose to not participate in.
For me, the main thing on a site like this for a friend,I look for is respect and something about them that I can learn from.
It is a dialogue that is like no other, and it is amazing that we can communicate,as long as folks are willing, with people in endless number of circumstances and perspectives.
Everyone has ,in life,and online their own sense of inner boundaries filtered through their unique way of looking at things.
There is no right answer for this question. Some people will friend everyone,and others will have one friend. Any choice,that you feel comfortable with is okay.
What is empowering about this experience project,is that you can change your mind, it is a totally voluntary exchange of ideas.
Friend the friends you want to friend!
On Facebook, I'm not interested in the friend requests from people I don't know, as strangers. But on any website other than Facebook and Myspace -- on both of which your friends are people you know -- your friends would be strangers, and I'm okay with that. On here, I'm not interested in friend requests from people with few or no experiences; I don't know them that way.
Sure! In fact, I don't know half the people on EP...yet I have accepted them as friends!
will you be my friend? oO
I like being asked, but when I review their profiles and we have nothing in common ,I'm like : who are you ? Why do you care ?
