What criteria do you use when choosing friends, both in real life and in mylot

I think there is a difference between choosing friends in MyLot and in the rela life. Maybe is not a big difference but for sure there is. In MyLot the criteria is quite easy: I check the profile, I read the discussion and the psot then I ask to become friend. Obviously I receive also many request from users to become my friend. I do the same but it's not the same. I am not searching them but just accept their request. In te real life... well I don't know if I have criteria or there are in general criteria. Friends come, you meet someone very different from you and he can became a friend and maybe someone that has the same idea cannot. Obviously friends are also from the school, the university, the office...

You can certainly try... and I will salute you for the effort. More often than not though, it is not possible to make friends with everyone. You want to choose your friends, your potential friends want to choose too. So only if you get a match, will you become friends. :P

Attitude, Personality I am a Person who will never judge anyone and specially not when someone tells me things about another Person, I always figure the Person out myself. I am a Person that keeps very much to herself, if People talk to me I will always talk back to them and I always have my own Opinion of People On mylot I go by how People respond, I read between Lines so I can tell through that what the Person is like and so far I have not been proven wrong by any of my Friends. They are how I thought they where loving caring and lovely People and they never judge And yes that includes you EsKaren

It's possible to be friendly with a lot of people, but not with everyone. Out of the people that I am friendly with I choose friends from those who are honest, loyal, and usually that have similar interests or beliefs. Also, I prefer people who are non-judgemental.

No way, not unless you've completely not picky at all! I find it hard to kake friends at all, mainly becuase i am really picky. I choose honesty and truthfullness above all else as a basis, i can't be friend with someone who would be untruthfull and lie to me. I also go for people i can have a laugh with, who share common interest with me, so i can have a good chat/laugh with them about things.

yes agreed with you. I too get really picky even on here and this causes me all sorts of problems lol. I turn down more friends requests than i accept because I demand a collection of interests similar to my own and the fact that i need to have answered a discussion they have launched or, at the very least they must have answered one of mine Thank you for your response blessed be

It is very different in choosing friends in the real life and mylot,in the real life, i have to choose someone who have good personality so that I can trust them in everything. In mylot, I do not mind who are my friends, I am happy to make friends with everyone, I will approve nearly 100 %friend requests..

I look for people who I share interests with both on mylot and in real life. As those people are more likely to respond to your discussions on here, and in real life you'll have more in common with people who share your interests and therefore hopefully get on better.

I think it is IMPOSSIBLE to be friends with everyone A quality one might like in you will be the reason why somone else dislike you ... you cannot pleae everybody ... because everybody is different and thus look for different things There still are some "common" qualities admired in a friend : most people think a friend should be a good listener, be there when they need them and help them through joys or hardships Finding and keeping REAL friends is very hard ... it must be a bilateral thing or the "friendship" won't last A real friend is a blessing ...

I feel making friends is very easy but maintaining them is very difficult.We can get along well with most of the people, they may not be the best of buddies but can be good aquaintances, but keeping in touch with them regularly is a difficult task,as tend to mismanage my relations.
