What Are You're Requirements or Reasons for adding Friends Here on CM?

I notice some have a lot of friends , some none. Is it interest? or age of kids. Do you know them outside of CM? For me Based on Groups and the kindness and low key personality. At the moment I have none. For me quality not quantity. and can we be helpful to each other in the end. I'm not a party type or someone that bashes . Do not drink, take drugs or smoke just never did. DH is the same.

PS : This is not a solicitation, just wondering.

Im a very private person

  • Intersting question!
    I just like to have something in common with a person and for that person to be polite.

  • I want friends I actually have something in common with. I don't want people on my list just to have them there.

  • I rarely add friends. I only do so if I recognize the screen name and I have some idea of why they're adding me as a friend. I only send a request maybe 3 times a year. It bugs me when someone tries to add me and just sends the standard friend invite, and I won't accept their friend invitations because I have no idea who they are or why they want to add me. Most of my friends are from my groups or people that I've had some interaction with here in Answers.

  • Oh! I forgot. If I have not talked to you or PM's you or gotten a PM in more than 90 days, I delete those people from friends as well.

  • I normally look at their profile to see if we are in any of the same groups. If I remember their name from a question I answered or asked & they answered, I normally say yes if they invite me to be friends. I don't really have anything on my profile. I don't even have any pics of my son's face on here. He's always wearing a mask of some kind, which he has a bunch of those pics bc he looks to dress up. No one even knows my son's name unless I tell them, so accepting an invite doesn't mean much at all.

  • i don't look at this like i do facebook, so i accept a few people- but i've never tried to invite anyone and i don't really care b/c i don't spend time on my, or other people's, profiles..i just use cafemom for the questions section for the most part

  • I don't have friends on CM. CM is my private escape from the world and I do everything I can to keep it as anonymous as possible without actually posting anon. If I were to have friends my anonymity might be compromised.

  • When I get a request from someone who JUST joined it's an automatic DECLINE! I only accept people who Iv seen on here or interacted with in some way. I dont have a whole lot of friends on here.

    Answer by vbruno at 3:58 PM on Apr. 24, 2011

  • I have none. I haven't found anybody in all these years (since 2007) that I actually "click" with.

    Answer by Orionsgirl at 4:05 PM on Apr. 24, 2011

  • i accept everyone to be added to my list, I don't think I have ever sent an invite myself though, I have over 300 friends in my list.
