are you influenced with the age of the person you wish to add as friend here in myLot? like when you see his/her avatar or when you liked his/her response to your discussion and you wanted that person to become a part of your friend list but when you see his/her age, you suddenly think otherwise? do you want a younger band of friends, or older?

To me age dosen't matter. I usally add friends by what I have in comman with them. I am almost in my mid 30's but age to me is just a number.

For me, i don't mind at all. Whoever request to be my friend, i will accept it no matter what. Because if i want to be others friend, too want to be accepted. So it's normal. I don't believe online friendship does concern age as a matter to filtering friend, i'm not denying though lol :) teen, old folks, everyone have their own experience that we can get as our goods. Be good friend of others :)

now this is an awesome discussion and i may stick my foot in it here lol..some of the discussions say on this site and exceptional well written thought provoking will of course we do have the fun who loves peanuts kinda thing..but how many posts are missed because there isn't';t a sexy young pic next to the name..or can a 28 yr old not have a Friend thats 40 and that be OK? one of my best friends is 29 we met on line and his friends tease us about talking to his mom online...but we share so much in common he is so well read and a wonderful writer and i have to admit when he said in yahoo he was 28 i was like well nice chatting..he was the one who thought whats age when choosing your friend..i always think of the pre cam era everyone in on line chat was a 22 yrd old cheerleader and the guys were buff with ripped six packs, i bet there were some scary real time hook ups lmao..well before i ramble of forever i hope this made sense Cheryl

yeah, that made sense and i understand you meant age isn't a big deal in friendship. i do feel the same too. but you know what? honestly, there are times when i get intimidated to young people out there who have such deep sense of reasoning that when i get to read their comments, i was like whoah! this kid is different and if i pursue on adding him as a friend i might end up being his "low-key" friend. know that? hahaha. guess, sometimes my confidence just batters me a bit.

yeah but would you add a "friend" who is younger than you? or do you choose to keep friends in your age bracket?

I can't say that age really matters to me. What really does matter to me is the quality of the response. If the person is well spoken and really has something to say besides just a one liner...I am interested in reading more. All my friends that I have on myLot range from the younger allowed to being retired. And...I enjoy all of them. :)

No, I am not influenced with age, gender, even with avatar, because I know those are under mask and may be or may not be real. While making friend, I only go through his/her interest, the discussion he/she has started and responded too. If those matches to me, then I request for friendship or accept. Above all age and gender are not a barrier for making friend.

i treat age with the same disdain or disregard on here as i do in real life. Just because a heart has been beating for a longer or shorter time than mine does not make it either a good or bad heart. However, the things people say and the things they do, does influence me in my choice of friendship, not an irrelivent division like age blessed be

Hi chaddik. I've never let age interfere with friendship. All my life I've been surrounded with family and friends of all age ranges. I find that others have a lot of information and experience to share and it's interesting to see the range of views from all ages. :)
