Common SenseIf you send me a friend request or if I have noticed a comment of yours to one of my stories or to that of a friend's then I will check out your profile before I consider adding you to my very small circle of friends. It isn't about arrogance. It is about finding people who share a common thread of thought. I have a variety of friends but we all share the same idea when it comes to respect.
If you are looking to befriend me, I strongly suggest that you carefully look over my profile. I don't befriend anybody and everybody who asks for friendship.
