What if your myLot friends don't even respond to your discussion?

I have thought about this for quite some time. I don't post a lot of discussions but I have noticed that there are more respondents to my discussion who are not even in my list of myLot friends. I am considering removing some of them from the list because I feel that I've been responding to their discussions, but I don't even know if they exist or not. Well, just ranting.. I guess that's how it is here. How about you? Are you in the same situation? Do you just let it be?

I actually notice that the peopel who answer my discussions are the same ones all the time. I guess I need to start answering more of your discussions huh?lol but I just look on the ones that are featured on the "my intersest section" and the ones from "my friends". I rarely look into older ones but now I will :]

Hi! You responded to this discussion, yet you're not even on my friends' list. I checked your profile and I found out that you have a friend on your list with exactly the same avatar as mine! I am not sure if you intended to respond to your myLot friend instead of me. By the way, thanks for the response and happy myLotting!

That's OK. I don't mind it at all. As my discussions may not be interesting for them and probably they really can't say anything to it. Besides, they may be too busy to reply to my discussions. I love China

I have a hugh list of friends, and I do not get responses from them. There are about four or five people who are on my list that will respond. I have stopped trying to figure it out. I am just hoping for responses from whoever, and I do not get many of those either, but I continue with my discussions, maybe one day they will take off. Happy Mylotting

Hello friend. I used to care about it at the beginning my being here at Mylot, but as time goes on, I have learned a lot from fellow mylotters and I think that if I don't get responses from my friends, it is possible that they have not read about it or they don't find that they can relate to my discussion. So I don't blame them and it is ok for me on my side. Of course, I still hope to have more responses from fellow mylotters. Happy posting, my dear friend.

hi ag_abscruzmd actually, i dont feel sad when a friend does not respond on my discussion. because sometimes i know i dont respond to all my friends' discussion. maybe my discussions does not interest them. and sometimes i am so busy that i miss out plenty discussions of my friends. but i'm starting to update every friend. at least one discussion of a friend. take care

It's fine with me as long as someone responds to my topics. I have lots of friends and sometimes their discussions get buried on the back page of the friends started tab. This prevents me from responding to their discussion. I also respond to the topic I'm only interested in and topics in which I have something to say.

I am also in the same situation. But my advice is don't remove anybody from your list, they will come handy at any point of time.

"When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be. Whisper words of wisdom, let it be." The Beatles I hope this song soothes your troubled heart a bit. I don't check who responds, I'm just glad when someone responds. To be honest I didn't check if you are a friend because I view everyone as a friend or as someone who will be a friend. I was attracted by your subject.

Hello! I would not mind if my friends didn't respond to my discussions. What matters is that somebody has to respond to them, they can't be left empty. When I respond to my friend's discussions, I do not expect them to respond me back. I just do it, and whatever happens happens. If they want to respond to mine, fine. If they don't, fine anyway. I'm sure I do not respond to all of my friend's discussion, but I try to do it to most, though. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

I dont do discussions but I have some experience with it. I let it be because unless its not a hot topic I wouldnt be that sad.

I have a few older friends that respond but more new and often some go totally unanswered at all and I know they are good questions.

hi ag abscruzmd hi again. I find mostof my friends do respond to my discussions as I do to theirs, and if othe mylotters respond thats great. we are all mylotter friends here. the whole idea is to get responses and to make more mylot friends while you are at it;enjoy meeting new people and get use to finding them on your discussions and be glad for that help.Welcome people to your discussions and you will always have lots of responses to your discussions and after all isnt that what we all want for our discussions. m mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

To be honest I think non of my friend post even one respond to any of my discussions. Maybe they are just not interested in topics I write about also I do not have many friends at this time since I am quite new here. I do not know. I usually respond to my friends discussion if I feel I have something to tell and can contribute to the discussion through my opinion.

no they don't. i probably i have tons of friends since i approve and don't care really if they respond or not because i don't often look at my friends discussions that much. i just go by interests mostly. but i do notice that some of my friends have the same interests so i would often see their posts, so i'm not too picky on deleting or keeping mylot friends. we'll benefit each other at one point.

I just let it be because I can't also respond to all my friend's discussions. I am seldom here so who happens to have a discussion when I log in, I only get to respond to those discussions. I no longer even choose whom to respond. I just go with the flow and what I feel like responding at that particular moment. I have become reconciled to the situation that I can't be here most of the time and I can't spend more time here to satisfy all my friends. I know also that I am not the only one who can only afford to drop by in here from time to time so I expect that most of them do also understand.

Well, it's just fine even if they'll will respond to my discussion. We can't force them. Maybe, they're just not interested with your topic. We have many interests here so just continue posting good discussions, someday they might respond if they like your topic.
