How do you decide?

How do you decide which friends to approve on MyLot? I find it hard sometimes and will often go into their link to see if we have anything in common. So how do you decide? Do you look at their posts?

I used to just accept everyone hookfan until I started to get bombarded with links constantly in my private messages! I tend to look through their profile and have a quick look through discussions they have started and replied to - unless I have met them on other discussions and feel we would get along! If I am still unsure I wait to see what else they do until I do make up my mind! xxx

I do. I look at their interests, at what they've posted, especially if they have a low number. Nearly all my low number friends I requested them because either I liked a post they started or I liked a response to a post. Even then I go and look at their page. Well, I kind of have to in order to request a friend don't I?

at the moment casue im still new i seem to accept anyone who wants to be my friend lol but afterward i will go back into there profile to see how i got to know them. i figure that its easy enough to delete them if i have nothing in common

Dear hookfan It's easy I used to check their profile and if they are from my location then I used to add them without any thoughts. I don't think much when I approve my friends list.

Hiya Pal As you can see I am at last getting round to this FRIENDS discussions , I approve everyone who asks me to be friends , I have about 400 now , I try to go through them all , I try to reply with looking at their discussions after they have replied to mine , I know I will have missed quite a few out because there is no way I have answered that amount , We are only human pal and can only do so much xx

I still only have a few here. I would like to be a 'good friend' and help them by replying to their discussions and that would not be possible with too many. If people have taken the trouble to ask me I have accepted so far. I have only asked a few myself when through looking at posts or their profile I thought we would have a lot in common.
