I Have Changed My "add Policy"

I used to search a person's profile if they fanned me just to see if we had anything in common and read some stories.  If we had lots of experiences in common, and I could relate to their stories, I would add them.  However, that's changed now.  Even if I can relate to someone, we still often end up never talking.  What's the point of having a friend that you never communicate with?

So here's my new add policy.  You have to have either scribbled on my whiteboard, commented on one of my stories or blogs, or sent me a message in order to be my friend.  In extreme cases (like if we have 300 experiences in common), I'll accept a gesture as a qualifier.  Otherwise, there's no point in adding you.

I believe I have over 100 friends myself, and no, I don't communicate with all of them. Most of them were added when I first joined EP and didn't know any better, though.

Well, even then, I don't who all of her friends are. However, if TexasLily tells me about her friend, and THEN they add me, I'll add them.

That's a great idea. I, like you, have a lot of "friends" but probably only about 5-6 that I actually chat with. I'm joining your "adding" theory. Thanks for the great suggestion.
