yes i also feel guilty if i can't respond to all of my friends discussions. i really try to respond but i cannot relate to everything that they post. Some discussions don't appeal to me. I feel sorry that i can't return the favor back, because some friends really take time to respond to my discussions. I would like to do the same to them but i have nothing to say in some of their discussions. i just hope that they will understand.

Hi yanjiaren, I usually start off going through my friends list each day and look at what they have posted, I try to find at least one discussion that I feel that I can participate in. Sometimes I don't feel that I can answer any of their discussion because they don't interest me or I don't feel I have the knowledge. I don't feel embarrassed and I'm happy that you respond to my questions with at least a thought out answer!

Embarrassed no. Guilty yes! Especially the ones that do more than one discussion and I still have nothing to contribute to any of the discussions, either because I know nothing of the subject or by the time I get to the discussion 20 other people have said the exact same thing as I would have. If I can't say atleast one thing differently then I don't leave a response. If I can't answer the response in 4 lines or more I don't leave a response. So I usually hope that my friends here will understand that I contribute when I find the right fit to a discussion. Does that make sense? I hope so. Good luck to you here at mylot!

You are doing your best. I am sure most of us are not even taking the trouble of looking into friends discussions. There is no need to feel embarrased. If you just cannot answer some discussion, then don't answer and if you want to really feel better, just write few sentence to please yourself. I don't think you have to be so dedicated to friends discussion. Sometimes some discussion are just out of our interest, so it is your choice. No force, besides I don't think your friend is going to take this so seriously. so cheer up and just do what you can do. Have a nice day.

Not all my friends discussions are interesting so I don't reply to all of them. There's no point in replying if you haven't got anything interesting to reply with. I wouldn't feel embarrassed. If you can answer one of each of your friends discussions every so often, then that's good.
