Friend requests

September 5, 2008 4:27am CST
My friend request box is currently flashing at over 20, i don't really know why! These people who have asked to be my friend haven't responded to any of my discussions, don't seem to have the same friends as me here on mylot and don't seem to be the type of person who would have anything in common with me- the majority of them are male and a lot older than me, what exactly do they think we would have to talk about!? When i first joined i'd make friends with anyone who asked but as time has gone on i have had to be more selective otherwise i can't do my friends justice and reply to their discussion as i just wouldn't have time to get through them all as i like to! I know someone else started a discussion like this not so long back, but i just wondered if the other women out there find that other ladies rarely ask to be friends, and do you respond to requests immediately, or do you wait to see what the person gets up to first!? xx

[i]Ohhh...I approve any request right away...I have over 400 friends and only less than 20 are active in my post, some of those who are in my post aren't not in my list..LOL! but, still, I am not making it as a hindrance for me to accept their friendship, I wish someday, they will be like me, turning on the notifications and tried to work on it day by day! LOL! It is challenging to have over 100 notifications each day but I love it since I am targeting a dollar a day here, it helps me a lot![/i]

Hi Munchkin, Oh I do feel for you on this one as when I first started I done exactly the same. I have over 21 pages of friends (most are inactive) and there are really only a handful that I am really close to. I don't like to deny though as no one likes rejection but I have three pending at the moment from people tat are still on 0, 1 or 5 and haven't shifted since hey requested last week so probably won't accept. I will however accept any one that has responded to a discussion or who has seen me via a friends discussion and got close to, bearing in mind we have over 147,000 members now though it would be difficult to accept and keep quality responses going to all eh! I answer to your question I do wait and see first. Huggles. Ellie :D

Aw, i'm glad you feel the same ellie, i was starting to feel really mean! i will always accept people i have come across through either my own or friend's discussions but like you i think i'll deny the inactive ones with no posts, there doesn't seem much point in accepting!! thanks ellie!! big love xxx

Is that a new avatar pic, looks great, I like it! I really ought to delete all the inactive on my list but I don't have enough time to go through them all but there are a select few who with or without myLot I would stay in contact with. Oh by the way my date is back on for this Friday at 8.30pm, whoo hoo. I got a text message with his email this time as I hadn't been in contact to let him know when I was available next after his cancellations. Huggles. Ellie :D

This friday as in today or next week? that's exciting!! it'll go well i'm sure, he's obviously keen if he keeps finding the time to make plans (even if he can't keep them!!) Keep me posted!! my pic is slightly different! i don't have many pics of myself but i thought this one was a little less busty!! haha thanks chick! I should probaboy do the same, i do feel mean though! I have my friends on here, such as yourself who i stay in touch with through discussions and i like that, am willing to make more proper friends but i don't see the point in having a long list for no reason!! xxx

Might I point out to you, Munchkin, that most of the people who have been here on myLot for a considerable length of time have accumulated many, many friends. Of course it would be impossible to communicate with each and every one of them on a daily basis, but over time it is comforting to know that they are there. I don't cross paths with some of my friends for months at a time, but that doesn't mean that I value their friendship any less. In my honest opinion, you limit yourself when you only select friends from a specific group that you think has more in common with you. I am proud to say that I have made friends from various walks of life, all age groups, and differing philosophies. The experience has changed me and made me a better person. So, please take my advice and get to know all kinds of people.

Great comment, wisdom and advice. I have had people request that I be their friend just because of a comment I replied to their post. I try to only post things that I find interesting or have had some experience with. My goal is to make friends yes. But also, in the meanwhile, have an lasting impression on the rest of the world. I look at mylot as the personal way I can reach some many people with the things I have learned over the years and exchange strengths from the veteran mylotters. The more you take the time to learn, the better you become is my opinion. So why not take advantage of this great opportunity in mylot, express yourself, be kind to others; all the while earning a nice income from your personal activity.

I do agree with you! I like to have friends from all different backgrounds and age groups, it makes discussion more interesting and i have a lot to learn from people, which is always good! The problem that i have is that when i accepted all of the friend requests i received i ended up getting offensive or inappropriate private messages from some of the men, i know that a lot of people are saying this is because of my avarat picture, but i don't think that this photograph is inviting that sort of behavious! So, because of this it has made me hesitant about accepting friend requests indiscriminately, which is sad because i may be missing out on some good friendships while i am being picky about it!! It's not that i don't want too many friends, of friends of a certain type, it's just that i want genuine friends who are here for the right reasons!! thank you for such well thought out and detailed responses! xxx

Hi, is that you in the photo? You look really nice, I just thought I would mention that! When you receive a lot of friendship requests it's difficult to say no. I actually agree and don't turn anyone down as I think it's a little impolite to do that. I guess one of the main reasons that the majority are male, and no one is going to admit this to themselves, is the fact that you look nice in the photo, you are attractive!! Don't worry, I'm not coming on to you by the way! I try and respond to my friend's discussions but it is hard at times. Still, you never know regarding friendships, you may become close friends, you just cannot tell. Andrew

I find it difficult to turn snyone down either but i have got so many from people with no posts etc that i think i am going to have to or it will start to get silly!! thanks for the response! happy mylotting xxx

I think they are smitten by your because of your beauty, LOL. But it is a real wonder if they are not answering your discussions perhaps they want to retain your url and check out your pics. Ha!! I'd say do not accept those friend requests. As for me, I accept everyone's requests as long as they are not having 0 post at the moment, because I would think those are spammers or perhaps trolls.

I don't really like to accept friend requests when people have either no posts or who haven't responded to the same discussions as me! What do you mena by troll?! xxx

Hey munch! Well, I hate to spoil the mystery for you, but it's your beautiful picture! What do think? You're so very pretty why wouldn't you be attracting attention, just be careful because you already said that you've gotten some of that "wrong kind" already! You know that I really care about you as a person and we connect on alot of levels even though I'm old enough to be your mummy (but don't want to be-then we couldn't have fun)lol! You do need to be picky at this point. You can be because you have made some really good friends that really do care about you and will look after you and defend you (you know which ones I'm talking about!) So please be very careful and if you are having a problem with someone, don't hesitate to call on one of us and do hit that mylot button!!! Yeah, that one!

Aw Opal you're so lovely! Its great to know that i do have some really good friends here on mylot, and you;re right i know exactly who they are! If i do have any problems in future i will be letting mylot know, it might be easy enough to hit the delete button and ignore it but that's not what this site is for! I thought maybe i was being a wimp for finding it so offensive, but the more i think about it, the more i think it's unfair that they should be sending these sort of messages, especially to women young enough to be their daughter!!! Thanks Opal, you're a true pal!! And mrghill is right, get an avatar pic up there!! lol big love xxx

I tend to respond to a request as soon as I notice it while I am logged into mylot. I accept everyone that requests my friendship, though I have denied some in the past when I was still new here. I myself usually request someone's friendship on here after I respond to one of their discussions (if they aren't already on my friends list), or if they respond to one of mine. In the past I have also requested friendships by searching for people that have the same interests as I do. This could be how some of these requests came about for you and that is why they haven't responded to your discussions as of yet. But then again, maybe they are just perverts as you said the majority of them are older men. Who knows? LOL If you feel that you don't have anything in common with these people, just deny their request. But either way please don't leave it hanging as these people did make the effort to request your friendship. Just my 2 cents.

You appear to have very catch and beautiful avatar, I think that attract many of the members to send you a request for adding them as your friend. I used to add everyone initially, but now a days I have become a bit selective about new additions. I remain bit apprehensive while adding a member on the basis of his/her number of posts. If the number is less than 100 and the fellow is too young, I just keep the request pending to check after few days, whether the fellow is progressing fast and is active here on my lot or not. If I find any progress, I accept the request and if I do not, I just deny it. While reviewing my friends' list, I try to figure out who are inactive for the past few months, if I am able to identify those, who are not active, I just 'delete' their names. I wish to have active members in my list, even it is a smaller one, rather than a long list with 'inactive members'.

I got a response from you ...for my last discussion... I think the reason for requesting you for friendship is...your photo in your AVATAR Believe me young lady , I am here on my lot since 11 July...and you are the only ONE ...whom no one can forget ..once they have seen your avatar.. I think it is not bad if any one is a admirer of beauty....regardless of age ( by beauty, I do not mean only pretty women) It can be, natures beauty, it can be Taj mahal..or any person... In my school days, there used to be a subject " MORAL SCIENCE " not sure if it is still exist ..There I remember a story of a young Prince, who lost his way, while hunting.He reached a hut of poor fisherman, had food and water from the young beautiful daughter of that poor man. After reaching his palace ...he asked his father's permission to have that beautiful lady, as his life partner...which was refused. The King was forced, to go and ask the poor man,for his daughter as his son's bride..because the prince started a hunger strike..The poor man explained the king that the young girl was not his own daughter...and he found her floating in near by river( typical old time story ) Please keep reading...There King came to know ...that the girl was his own daughter ( extra martial )....and was shocked....thinking, how he would explain this to his son...that she is his " SISTER " Any how ...he told his son of this new relation...and you know how did his son react..He started crying with joy....and told his father...I WANTED HER...AS I LOVED HER...AND BY THIS RELATION,,IT WILL BE GREAT TO HAVE HER AS MY SISTER...I ONLY WANTED TO BE WITH HER...REGARDLESS OF HER RELATION WITH ME....GOD HAS GIVEN ME THIS GIFT AS A SISTER...WHICH AN"T BE DENIED BY ANY ONE IN THIS WORLD.... moral of this story is, beauty can be loved and accepted in any form...You have mentioned that those requesting you are much older than you...In fact after looking at your profile ...I changed my my mind of requesting you for friendship , as you are half the age of mine...and you may take it in other sense...But it is not so with every one dear...I have three niece of your age and a daughter 15 years...We are here to meet different people ..and have only one option of calling them FRIEND..So, better go through their profile and accept those you can...and if you find it difficult later, ignore them or delete them... Regards , have a nice day ...
7 Sep 08
I love stories like that, thank you for sharing!! I think it's a shame that i feel the need to hesitate when accepting friend requests from men over a certain age, purely because of the way some have behaved! I've got a few male friends on here who are a lot older than me and we get on really well, and have a really good relationship with eachother, i'd hate to think i was missing out on that because of the actions of a couple of people!! I think i need to try to be a little more open minded about it! Thanks you for such a thoughtful and interesting response, as well as your advice! happy mylotting! xxx

Yes, indeed that was a good story. I am glad you decided to participate in this discussion as well. Especially from a another man's perspective. By the way, I love your quote in your profile. Beauty is not always defined as appearance. It can be defined or described from a sunset, a mountain top view of a valley down below, a plane right over the ocean blue or the national geographic travel discussing the nature habitat of certain insects or even wild animals. Not to mention two good friends holding hands or the birth of a child. There are many different ways to define beauty.

I know this 'phenomenon' and there is an explanation. There are a lot of teenagers joining MyLot. In fact, they are happy to join everything new on the internet. They also use to ask for friendship on all websites, forums ... no matter if they have or not something in common with that person. This is the way they start. Have you ever seen a child, teen, with hundreds of contacts on their messenger list for example? I had. And they are very proud of that. In time, they start to socialize differently, they involve differently. Also, see how many people join MyLot and have no idea what's all about. Most of them understand later the principles and read the rules after 3-4 month. But this does not mean they won't do that. So, why not give them a chance ?! They may express themselves later. I will put this from my own side now. I usually reject all Friend Requests that want to sell me products or simply make me join a program they have. Or, well, to tell the truth, I also use to 'discriminate' people for their musical tastes. I can't help that ... But I give a chance to the rest of them.
12 Oct 08
You might be right but the group of people that i tnd to have problems with is men i their forties and fifties, but then again i guess there's nothing to say that people are truthful about their ages. I won't accept friend requests from people who are obviously trying to sell me something to get me to sign up to something, people that have hardly any posts i don't deny straight away, i wait and see what they get up to first!! I think everyone has their own system for friend requests! xxx

I think a lot of them think that having more friends will help them to increase their earnings, as well as wanting to post spam to all their friends too!! xxx

Hope you don't mind a guy responding to your discussion. It came up in my digest report so and your topic caught my interest. The friends issue is a big mystery to me as well. Especially when I started getting request after request from people located in India. The first initial thought was okay kewl someone wants to be my friend. But then several other requests started coming from the same location in the world. I do have Indian people in my family, however, I am not of that direct descent. I still accept friend requests from anyone and I give everyone the benefit of the doubt. It's all a matter of time before they show their true colors. Even though, I have received several friend requests; if they start PM'ing me about some business opportunity they want me to take a look at; then I know they befriended me with the wrong motive. So I ignore them. I don't delete them because if I ever start a discussion that they might be interested in debating then it improves my rating in mylot. Okay, I've been enough of the chatter box concerning this subject. Thanks for the discussion and I hope you didn't mind be chiming in even though I am a guy. Besides I dont' know why some people aren't actively looking for serious friends that they would like to debate with on mylot or simple just to support one another. It seems like to me that it would only make sense?!? A friend by my definition is someone who has the same common goals or interests as you. Someone who will be a support to you and but mostly importantly someone who can seriously let you know when you're headed down the wrong path in life. Some people simple enjoy being phony and not themselves, which is why they put up a image of themselves that isn't really them at all, just to be liked by everyone else. As for me, if I can't be real, then why do it? Some people like me, some people don't. Some that take the time to get to know me will and others that don't won't. I cannot allow what other people think of me to stop me from being a better person or from striving to become the best person I know how to be. hdjohnson

Of course i don't mind a guy responding to my discussion!! I haven't got anything against men, or even being friends with them it's just that i have come across a few who don't behave appropriately, and i was also curious as to why no women ask to be my friend hardly!! I like to have friends from all different walks of life, from both sexes and of all different ages but i want a friend who is a true friend, not somebody who wants to send me spam, offensive messages or who is inactive!! i've whittled my request list down now though!! thanks for the response! xxx

Oh I see now. Well if you want more female friends search for some that share the same common interests as you and request to become their friends. The more you do that, the more other females will eventually begin to ask you to be their friend. It's called "seedtime and harvest" the more friendships you sow, the more you will eventually reap. It can be truly lonely on mylot if you are focused on one particular thing. There are alot of interesting people on here. And unfortunately there are a few loonies as well. And not to mention those awful perverts. I apologize that you have encountered them. But you will meet all types of people in person with varied backgrounds and personalities, as long as you keep living. It will be up to you to determine how close will you allow them to be to you. So, don't lose sight of you dreams or goals, if you truly want as many friends as you want. Write down some standards, and whenever you do receive a friend request, accept them and forward your new friend your standards for your friendship. If they are truly wanting to be your friend, then they will agree with some, probably rebut a few and send you a counter offer of their standards. Once you both agree. Then over time, you will see many friendships blossom! At least that's what I've been taught over the years. Before I got married to my wife, we were friends for four years. Now we have been married for 8.75 years. A good long time for real friends. Do we always see eye to eye? no, Do we disagree sometimes? yes. But we both know in the end we can agree to disagree and move on. It's how you decide to learn or live your own personal life, whether or not you will acquire all the things you truly want out of life (whether that is friends or something materialistic). I hope my 3 cents added to discussion and that it works well for you.

Glad I am not the only one this time. Mylot goes though phases of invites and it would appear it is time for people to go on mad requesting binges again. I looked yesterday and had 5 requests. I looked again this morning and there were 7 more. Not a one of them responded to any of my discussions and as far as I was able to tell I had nothing to say to any of theirs. If that is the case I deny them. Yeah yeah I know most sat it is rude but then again I have never been called the nicest person. LOL

Well, honestly I have had a lot of friends request in mine, but I have gotten in the habit of disregarding them. I have deleted alot of people who did not respond to me or started discussions of which I did not like. I would be fine with just having my fiance, and his brother in my friend's list here. A lot of women seem to ask for me to be friends so I can't really say that women rarely as to be friends with me. I do not respond imediately unless I have seen the person's discussions and enjoyed the content. I won't wait to see what they get up to first either, as like I said above I disregard them now.

I would deny them before you end up deleting them anyway. I've deleted friends also because I never responded to them and they were just taking up space in my discussions my friends started. I don't know if I would call it toughen up, but I would definitely recommend deleting those you just wouldn't get along with.

Firstly, how are you feeling today Munchkin. Slept well I trust. I have pages and pages of friends most of whom I saw first and last the day that they sent in the friends request. Currently I am doing a little experiment. I have 10 pending friends. The first two of whom requested five weeks ago and haven't visited the Lot since. All are from somewhere other than Europe, Australia/NZ or North America. I am not inclined to accept any of them. None have visited my discussions nor I theirs. I do like to help people along, but I wonder what these folk see in me because I see nothing in them. I'm a misery aren't I. You can say yes! LOL.

You are, but i must be too because i think exactly the same as you! I feel cruel saying no, but what's the point in being friends with someone you have nothing in common with and who seemingly has no interest in you or what you get up to on here! I think it's very odd!! Mine all come from a similar area to you from what i can gather! hehe if i'm honest i feel worse today, bad night's sleep and wanting a big hug from my mum (i turn into a baby when i'm ill!! lol) have started some meds from the doctor though so hopefully there's light at the end of the tunnel at least!! aw, it's lovely of you to ask after me p1ke, i feel all loved and wanted!! hehe has the daughter survived another night alone? bet she's looking forward to a parental visit over the weekend!! xxx

That's what mothers (and fathers) are for Munchkin. To dole out great big hugs and cuddles when you are well and sick. That's why we are off to Hatfield again tomorrow. You have to love your children, even when they are big. There is nobody sicker than me when I am feeling poorly. I am in a class of my own at feeling sorry for myself. I expect cuddles and kisses - not too smothering though. I like to be left alone, except when I don't. My favourite foods and drink should be brought to me and nice magazines - boys mags (not those!! What a mind you have). Computers, fishing etc. Now. I hope that you are tucked up all warm. Got a drink? Good. Stay off the ciggies. I see that we are going to have another day of it. XX

I know, i love my parents, they're gonna be here next week too, can't wait for some parental love!! Am tucked up in bed, my brother has brought me leftover chinese and cheesy magazines as well as a couple of dvds! even got a hug, so am a little bit happier now, if i can't have my parents he's the next best thing!! lol Am getting fairly spoilt to be honest, i'd rather not feel pooey though!! It sounds as though you are as bad as me when you are ill then!! hehe this is the only time that i wish i didn't live alone!! oh well, i'll be on the mend soon i'm sure! i'll leave the off the ciggies, i promise! lol xxxx
