Do you have a myLot Friendship Dilemma? I do!
March 4, 2008 4:25pm CST
My problem is when I click the link 'discussions my friends have started' I can't actually find my friends. My list is so big with people who wanted me to add them as friend; so I did. I had good intentions of keeping up with everyone but my time on myLot is minimal and I don’t' come on every day. So when I do come on sometimes I want to click my friendship list to see what they are writing. By friends I mean the people I have become familiar with and like to check and see what they are writing about. My problem is I can't find them on my list because they are so far along in the list and it becomes time consuming when I have such little time to be on here. Do you think it is okay for me to delete people from my friend list and only keep the ones I am more familiar with to make them more accessible?

My current count is 726. Eep! :P I have that problem quite a bit, I think. I rarely ever turn down friend requests, and when I do so it's because they have already specifically offended me with some form of severe rudeness or bigotry. So my list is pretty huge, though I'm sure quite a few of them are inactive people from when I first joined. I have gone through a few times and deleted inactives, but there a few I keep around for nostalgia value because I miss them so much. I'm such a weirdo, wanting to see their avatars on my list even though they don't post anymore. I don't think that there's anything wrong with deleting people who are on your list but you really don't talk to. Some people want as many friends on their list as they can get, and other people want just the people they consider real friends. I think it's up to you how you use your list, and if someone doesn't really talk to you much, they probably won't realize you dropped them anyway.

So funny that you said you keep some around for nostalgia value. I do the same thing. I do go through and clean out the inactives every now and then but there are a few who I just can not remove such as who we were both referring to earlier.

I don't think you should feel bad about deleting friends on your list who aren't active or you no longer want to track or follow. I have all my friends on my list from the very beginning but since I am set up with email notifications, I only hear from the ones who are active.
