Friends.. What I like about mylot :)

June 16, 2007 11:28pm CST
One of the things I like about mylot is how you can make friends with people of any age. (yet still get along) If someone asked me what I thought was best about "mylot" I wouldn't say the fact they pay. I would say it's a great community for discussing and making friends, unlike a lot of other sites which you find rude people leading the way. So if I asked you; What do you prefer the money or your friends what would you choose? Hand on my heart I'm all about friendship. (just ask) Very dedicated to my friends because they're a great bunch (don't laugh) lol ~Joey

asmurthy; Cheers buddy, it's one of the most important things about this place. If they took the friend features away and we just responded I'm sure I wouldn't be here as much. Kudos! Steven; Hey buddy, Good point.. I like making friends with people from different nations, it shows us we can all get along and that most of the reasons some don't is because of world leaders. Kudos ~Joey

yup. at first you'll think of the money you can earn. but you never expected that you'll earn more than money here. friends are hard to find these days. but here in myLot, you'll realize it's not that difficult to find them after all. ... anne

yeah. same to me here. at first, i joined because of the money, but then later on, the reason is nolonger 100% money but instead the fact that we'll be able to have friends ready to help us when we need one. all you need to do is post it here and the fact that we do the same to other people, that is helping them if they need one by responding to them. another thing that i like in this site is, we can express freely our ideas without any descrimination. I am really amazed how things worked in here.

I too love being able to communicate with so many different people of different cultures and making friends and sharing ideas, suggestions and advice about different topics. The extra money is nice too but being friends with you and my other friends on here is even better. This site to me is better than any of the social networking sites out there. The people seem to be more sincere here as well than other sites. I plan on staying here as long as myLot is still around.

thing is, i can easily get money from somewhere else. but gaining friends is a hard thing to do. but here in myLot, unexpectedly, i have gotten to know lots of people and had them as friends. people who i can't take away from my life anymore. people who taught me many things. people who were never scared to shared their emotions, stories and feelings. the openness we have here for each other is one of a kind. it's immeasurable.. not any form of money can buy... anne

When I first joined, it was the money that attracted me to the place, because I like posting on forums anyway so I thought that would be a nice bonus, to get paid for it. I have learned quickly that the friendships we make on here are far more important. It is really cool to be able to chat and learn from each other, encourage each other and share our experiences. That is something I have found on other forums, but actually I think there are some very special people on here, from all over the world, and as you say from all ages and backgrounds. I love that.

Joey I am in agreement, completely. Besides, just how much incentive is there to get here? It's taken 2 months to reach my first payout and when the check does come I won't be able to even get a haircut with it. LOL. No, it's definitely the friends and the sense of community, the interesting discussions and the feeling like hey, I do connect with people. Thanks for being one of my friends here.

Well, Joey that is just so great for you. I wish I can say it is all about my friends but I only have at least five that I think I am close to and talk to on a regular basis. But, all the other ones aren't that close to me. So, I feel like I am here to have fun and earn while doing it. I guess that is what I like about mylot.

Yeah you're right. My LOt pays. Meeting friends is one of the good things you can do here too. Aside from the fact that there are really a lot of mylotters who cares so much to reply on any of your discussions. ;)

It is a good thing to meet new people and see what they have to say. I like seeing the different opinions on here and meeting new people as well.

Money is an incentive and very useful but I will not be able to quit my day job just to post on here. It has been a great boost to my confidence being on MyLot. I have been able to pass on some of my knowledge and learned a lot and been helped by other members. There are some great people here. We have also been helping each other out with joining links. That is a great side line effect.

I think the majority of us wouldn't be on Mylot if it was just for the money my friend. Money is a bonus yes, but the most valuable thing a person can have in life whether on or off line is friends. It's the friends on MYlot that have supported me through the bad times of my depression, knowing that they are there for me come what may I can rely on them for support and to give me the much needed kick up the backside, friendship is platignum, even the most richest person in the world cannot buy true friendship

Joey, So many times I have had problems with one thing or another. I was always helped by someone on my lot. I can't find that just anywhere. So that would be my best part of my lot. I have also learned so much from the great people here as well.

Hi Joey_Matthews Just became a mylot member yesterday and I am impressed with how comprehensive this site is and what interesting discussions are started. I also like the way people talk about things in 'respectuful dialogue.' In regard to the money or friendship question. I would not 'sell' anyone out for money but when funds are tight it sure is nice to have friends. Being able to blend a comfortable life with friends who are open and honest is...in my view the best of both worlds. I'm with you on the age thing...I have friends both younger and older than I. My husband is 12 years younger...so obviously we are not caught up in the numbers game. I would rather have a few really authentic freinds than a whole bunch of superficial ones. When there is share openess and trust age doesn't matter at all.
