I have just gone through my friends list and I have 5 pages of friends. Some of which I already knew from other sites, other's that I responded to their discussions or they replyed to mine and liked them, so requested to be friends with them and other's I approved of to be my friend. I am wondering how do you pick your friends here? I picked mine by how interesting or how nice someone was on a response or discussions I had with the person. I wanted to get to know them better. I have met some of the nicest people here on mylot. So that is my question, how do you pick your friends on mylot?

I really don't have any real special criteria that I use when choosing my friends at Mylot. I just choose them if I can relate to them. I also choose them if we have alot in common and live in the same country also but I am always willing to accept my international friend request also. I have requested international members also.

well i have nine pages of friends but only maybe two are active anymore. i just hate to delete any just in case they happen to come back. i go through their discissions and see what kind they start and how they repond to discussions. as long as the aren't starting these discussions that are one line nothings are responding with one word or i don't know then i approve them.

I am the same, but I was fooled as 2 people I accepted did that after I approved them. I explained to them that they need to write more to earn more, and they listened to me I couldn't believe it

When someone sends me a friend request I look at their profile. I look at the discussions they have started and I check out a few of their responses to other discussions. If they seem friendly, interesting or both, I approve them. Also, if they seem to have a good sense of humor, I approve them. Also when I notice that I respond to a particular person's discussions quite a bit, I'll send that person a friend request. Also when I see a particular user around the forum, because we have replied to a lot of the same discussions or whatever, and I find that I often like that person's responses for any reason, I will send them a friend request.

I pick my friends on mylot by how interested, funny there discussions are, and how they respond. When i get a friends request i always checkout there profilesite to see, how i feel when i watch there site, and what there interests are. I generally go my feeling this maybe sounds strange to you, but that's the way i pick my friends on mylot.

the same with me.. i pick friends here by the way they put sense on a discussion, reacts and share their experiences, and of course how nice or friendly they are to everyone.. because i love to have friends who are really interesting and generous in sharing their opinions, feelings and even own experiences in order to help people who are in need of advice from someone who could relate with their situation... i know there are a lot of nice people here on mylot..

Most of the time it is a random process for me. As I am much of a responder than an initiater I would just respond to my preferred topics and make friends with the thread starter. I am having my hands full now so I seldom start a discussion (see my post and you will be able to understand). So, I am contended with what I have now. Thanks for accepting me too.
