Here on ep: We can always get to know one another.<br />
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.<br />
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.<br />
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.<br />
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. <br />
Everyone has ,in life,and online their own sense of inner boundaries filtered through their unique way of looking at things.<br />
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.<br />
What is empowering about this experience project,is that you can change your mind, it is a totally voluntary exchange of ideas.<br />
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 ?
