I'm so flattered to see my chubby little penguin on someone else's profile page.

Yesterday I was surfing through some profile pages, looking for discussions to answer and saw my chubby little penguin avatar picture on someone's page, under their friends list. It was definitely a nice surprise. I felt so proud, as if someone was showing me off to the rest of the world. As if they were saying, "Look everyone, she's my friend!" I know that those avatars only appear for most recent friends, but it was still a nice thought. Nice to feel like you have friends. Nice to know that others would look at that little penguin and think, "Maybe she is worth having as a friend, if others like her so much." What do you think? Are you ever surprised when you see your avatar on another member's profile page under the friendship section? Does it make you happy knowing that they would consider you a friend? Do you feel proud to show off your friends avatars on your profile page?

I know how you feel, he is a cute little fella, I often relate people to their avatars and I must be honest a few times I have been talking to some thinking they were felame because of their avatar and was surprised to find out they were male and a few that I thought were male and they are female, I love the avatars especially the cute ones...

Its a nice feeling, but usually I'm on the middle or last page so I have to actually go through the friends list ;p And it is great that people add me as a friend, shows a lot of faith in me and my answers/advice.
