As long as their profile is clear of what I consider 'red flags' I add them. Red flags would be like an obvious obsession, or hatred with rage. I'm also leery of 'flowery speech' showing a sense of spiritual superiority.

I haven't gotten that far yet, but definitely look for red flags, you'll feel it in your gut.x
That we spoke previously and we would continue to keep speaking...hah

I've only added one of the people on my list. And that was for personality :P
