People keep asking me to make them my friend , I think this is lovely . It's nice to look at the list growing , But when I looked at them today some of them hav'nt even answered one of my discussions , I am trying so hard not to hurt anyone by not missing their discussions ( I hope I havn't) . If you are on my friend list and I have missed you then please send me a personal message and I will correct it right away.I rate all my answers on my discussions so I hope I am doing everything I should be ,. Thanks all of you this is fun xx

This happens to us all! Requests for friendship when the person hasn't even read a single discussion you have made, which I find very unusual. I always endeavour to answer all of my friends discussions' but sometimes the topic in question I know nothing about, so I leave those ones, I know they understand, and likewise if I create a topic that not everyone is interested in, I do not expect them to reply to every single one of my discussions. You're doing just fine!

My friends also do that (with some exceptions). Some don't even answer my personal messages. I don't know why is that, but... no matter. You keep doing it. :)

I think that is really ignorant not answering a message but again that's just my opinion xx

yes I think it is nice to have friends in here and growing them and maintaing them sometimes bit hard. but if we try to so that , Ithink that gonna be fun. what ever in here I like rating stuff and giving advice to others so cool. sometimes I cant beieve valuable thoughts with some persons have, it is nice to see. I like if we can make this as education things in here also. so we can make lots of crazy things up to here with knowledge.

Even if you don't answer you can rate the discussion. you get credit for that, I'm talking about the ones on your friends list

Yes exactly Weemam, they want you to respond to theirs but not to yours that is why I am going through mine like that and deleting them from my list friends but certainly not you as I love your discussions, and yes you are doing everything right and I love you my dear friend and yes it is fun I love it here too.

I can't always take part in my friends discussions. I do look at them all but sometimes they aren't something I know about. Especially if they are about sport or TV shows we don't get over here in the UK. I do try to be a good friend, but sometimes I just can't reply.

Im so sorry michelle , what I meant was that sometimes when we have a lot of friends we cant keep up with answering them all and that if I had missed anyone i wish they would tell me as I didn't want anyone to think I was ignoring them . I didnt mean to offend anyone , so sorry if I did xx

yea indeed, i have the same thing. When people add me at first they answer like 1 or maximum 2 discussions and then nothing anymore. I answer as much discussions from my friends as they answer from me so very simple: don't answer in mine, i don't answer in yours. I also rate the other discussions i post in, always.

I think maybe they want to have a lot of friend too. So simes you can't answer everyone's discussion, for one thing you might not like the discussion.

what are friends to you anyway ? if you make a friends just to answered all of your discussions, that's not sound like friends to me, that's just bussiness partner. if you really think they are your friends, how about think in another way. why you are being forgotten by them ? why they not answered one of your discussions ? it's simpe, because they have life, they cann't life for you only. it doesnn't matter to me if my friends not answered my discussions & i will not be angry to them. try to think about them, try to accept them whatever they are & being happy together with your friends. that is the meaning of having friends are.

I think that if one accepts another as a friend they are obligated to post responses to the friends discussions. It would only be fair and right if the did the same. I do not have everyone posting on mine, so I check them out and they have tons of friends and really only post to a few on them. Why have so many HMMM if you don't intend on posting? I think those type of people are hoping you just post to theirs and hope that you won't notice they don't post to yours. I am watching though......

I can't respond to everyone on my friends list, but if i see someone on my list that is trying their best to answer all my discussions then i turn their notify on and i try my best to respond to as many of their discussions i can relate to or have an answer for. I dont think anyone should be offended if all their friends dont answer all their discussions, after all, there are A LOT of us here and its hard to keep track of people when your responding to like 20-30 or more different topics a day. its even harder when people CHANGE their avatar! lol. i get confused easy i guess!
