Are friendly members of myLot really friendly in person?

I just noticed it, majority (if not all) of members here in mylot are too friendly. In response to discussions, giving insights, giving suggestions and the like. Are we really that friendly in real life or just simply doing what's appropriate so that we will not be banned here? I knew other social sites are not like this, that is why I have spent more time here than any other social sites. Just an observation I would to share. What do you think?

I don't really know the answer because I've never met anybody on MyLot actually in person. However, I believe that from personal opinion (and what others have commented upon) that yes, I am a very friendly, approachable person in real life, which I think contributes to the reason why I can get along with just about anybody and am a fairly popular person. Although I do think that many responses (and yes, I am guilty here) are over-friendly, maybe because we want to make a person in the discussion feel better about themselves if they are having problems or to just simply express ourselves as nice, welcoming members of the community. To be honest, I would rather have people on this site be over-friendly than hateful because it just generally results in more peaceful and happy discussions and gives off a positive communal atmosphere.

hi mr kennedey what would he have us be overly nasty? that is just what nobody wants to be dissed, I am friendly because that is my nature and I feel a tad insulted that anyone would call me overly friendly.for one thing I spent a lifetime caring for sick people so yes I am a caring person but that does not for one minute say I am not sincere,not at all.

I don't think so. Not everyone in Mylot are friendly in real life. For exmple me, myself, I don't really friendly in my real life. I do have many friends but I am an intrapersonal person, I don't really like to talk much but I like to give out my opinion. So, I response to discussions because I like to not because I'm friendly. Besides that, I also believe that some of the mylot members responsed to a discussion because they want to earn more cash and not because they are friendly. There shoul be plenty of reason why we response to other people responses and that's may not because we are friendly. That's my opinion only. maybe there are friendly members that truely friendls even in their real life.

i agree with you there tommy, they are friendly here because they simply are forbid to at least speak for what they feel in their chance to say something which can be violation but in real life they can even poke you in the eye if they have too

Well I'm really friendly in real life but I'm also mean to anybody who's trying to be mean to me. I am a good friend but a bad enemy. I also noticed here lots of plastic people. They're not being true. You can pinpoint some easily. I'm proud to say that I'm not one of those plastic myLotters here. In fact, I oftentimes get into arguments here. Haha. I'm just being myself. I'm for real. shadow41

I guess it depends. On this site people ask all kinds of different questions and we're all here to either make a little money but also to read what other people have to say. So, I think when you have an incentive to do something chances are you'll try to do it in the best way possible. But also, most times people are generally nice to strangers because there's no reason to be rude to someone you don't know.

hello fulltank, that's the difference with people here and people in other sites, at least here they are truly friendly and others are forbid from saying any kind of bad words here since it's it doesn't allowed. i spent here because the discussion,comments and friends are friendly here. and they really help me when ever i have a problem.

fulltank I can only speak for myself but if I seem veryfriendly in my doings with some of my mylot friends it is because I really do like them and it comes from my heart. I am not insincere at all.If I like someone I will say so, if I do not I will not bother them at all. I think a lot of us are really very friendly'and I am an elderly woman who has seen it all. You may be being a bit cynical in that you may have met some p eople who are not sincere at all.

I have alot of people that i know as a friend on here as well as off here and i find the people that i know are very friendly.I think sometimes you may find that a odd one or two may not be all that they seem,but in all i would say yes they are very nice on here as well as off here.

I am! At first. Haha, I've been told I'm a very polite person. But just ask any of my friends, I can bite too. I'm friendly until we get to be close friends - then I just stop giving a crap and go funny-crazy. I can be friendly and polite when I need to, but normally I'm a very blunt person. My friends all tell me I'm "one of the strongest women they know". So I suppose once you slowly get to know me I get less cute and polite, and more fun and wierd. Haha!

in real life except for my sister, I do not have any friends. and I like it that way. but no, I'm not friendly in the "real" world.Im more like lazerm 'TERMINATOR' in the politics posts.coldblooded,ruthless, and unfeeling.but, thats partly because people have treated me like garbage for 20yrs.so to hell with them.

hi fulltank,i think mylot has many friendly people rather than any other site but we cant compare it in the real scenario coz here we are attracted towards their words nd sense of humour who knows how they might be in the real life.as we are here for making some cents nd friends come accross nd enjoy the most.there r some ppl like the lambneverdies has made some friends online nd they had a gettogether which is really nice.gud day.

hi fulltank^^;; well maybe yes and maybe not. maybe yes because it's hard for them to hide their real personality and it's easy to express one's ideas and feelings here in words without considering their pretentious identities. so they are real friendly. maybe not because some came here for other purposes. to earn money, they must be friendly to have referrals. to pretend their personality makes them feel better as they cannot do it in real life... for me, i go for the first one because i want others to be real too but who knows..

Hopefully, myLot members are friendly, also occurs in everyday life they are. If not, let's just say myLot is a place to learn and practice to become friendly. At least, the behavior here would have an impact on everyday life.
