Common Sense

If 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.

Same here.

I always check out a profile. I just don't see why anybody would want to be friends with someone they have nothing in common with. I suppose that goes back to the "friend collectors" we hear about.

Neither do I. This is an excellent post. There are some really great people on here and then there are the undesirables. You are wise to carefully look over a profile, more people should do that instead of blindly adding people to their circle only to have to cut them later on.
