Why Do People Do This?

i hate when people make such a big deal about when people on EP add people of the opposite sex to their circle, especially if they are significantly older or younger. this is a site for friendship, not a dating site.

Wow. Do people really do this? I had no idea.

I have 14 yo friends and also mature adult ^ ^ I add the opposite and also same sex and everything in between, as long as they were in tolerable manner and not into things I didnt like am cool, aslong as nobody text abuse or text harass me , lol

same here.

I never noticed that people did this. I have had friends as young as 18 and as old as in their 70s. It's not age that counts, it's the person. There is nothing wrong with a platonic friendship of any age, although I don't add people under 18 on EP.
