Why do you think people on S W add you as a friend

Why do you add certain people as friends
Usually? Because I’m friends with @V00doo and they think I can get them into her direct dial list
@candycane here we go 🤦🏼‍♀️

I am VERY selective when it becomes to be friend with someone.

Usually I just add people as friends when I know them since a really long time (at least one year), when there's regularly contact and when I see that they are interested in me.

People on SW probably just add me as a friend because of shallowness. Normally I put them from my list again when I see that someone has added me.

@WandererTony Well, I see your point.
I just can't feel flattered when I see just shallowness when someone adds me.

Someone, who doesn't know me and who actually is not interested in my person... I can't call such a person "friend."

@Loretta78 I guess gender has something to do with this. Most men love attention, many women prefer caution and selection.
And then again "friend" is just a term here meaning perhaps that you get notified about their posts and comments. Friendship in real, as you refer, is indeed rare, my friend 🤗

@WandererTony I agree.

I have not been on here for a while so a bit late with a response.
I do like your question, I have added only 15 people as friends, I do follow a few more. I add people who I think I would enjoy getting to know based on their posts and comments. I have had, I am guessing about 6 of the 15 that have requested me first.
I do get frustrated as it seems that even "friends" rarely initiate a conversation. Normally unless I initiate first rarely or never hear form most. 😥

@Mktonght that is true
Apparently its my 'energy'. New buzz word for the inbox where they think they'll get tit pics or dominated. 🙄
MilitantIrishShepherd · 26-30, M
@V00doo dominate me with energetic tit pics pls 🥺
MilitantIrishShepherd · 26-30, M
They want elbow nudes from me
@MilitantIrishShepherd Im still waiting.
MilitantIrishShepherd · 26-30, M
@V00doo I'm waiting until I take a really good one. You deserve the best elbow nudes 😌
We've talked for a while on posts and they're good people is why I add others
Cause I’m freaking awesome 🕺
GeorgeTBH · 31-35, M
🤷‍♂️ no clue 🤔

I rarely get added as a friend but for those who have I appreciate them and they know it (or I hope they do) :)
I will add someone if we have common interests or I find them smart and reasonable.
WandererTony · 56-60, M
I think most of the people who have added me have done so because they noticed a similarity in tastes.

And I hardly add anybody as friend. Usually wait to be added. And immediately reciprocate 🙂
keeper · 41-45, M
I usually don't "add" many - but my feed consisted of like six people and posts from 2018. So I recently added some cool users that I've interacted with before.
if I think I have something in common and we have had fun conversations in posts I will add people. some have even followed back!!
StevenIzzi · 51-55, M
They start reading some of my comedy or my conversations with scammers and they want to know more.

Or it could be the nudes.
One user told me they added me because they thought I seemed interesting. That's the first and last time anyone will ever say that. 😅

1st Rule is: They're Not Whining Idiots
2nd Rule is: Interesting, Witty, Humourous, Thoughtful, Fun, Intriguing in some way.

@ravenwind43 aww thanks! Wanta be friends?
Most times, not a clue. It's usually NOT because we have so much in common.
@BreezeyBree I added you bc of your love of music
AngelKrish · 22-25, M
I just add people with some good content...i don't judge a person with just his/ her profile
beefandbroccoli · 26-30, M

candycane · 31-35, F
