I have been inactive so long...and I have just gotten into daily scrapbook.com activity and I only have a few friends. I feel like a complete utter loser for asking...but will you please be my friend?

why are we having a rash of users who complain about having no friends?

Are you adding people to your friends list and they're not responding or are you just sitting there hoping someone adds you?

Scrappymom and pugs, I added you as friends. I know how hard it is to get friends on here. There are so many new members it's hard for everyone to get added as a friend sometimes. Plus I've added people and have gotten no response.

I wondered this too.
I was here for years before I had ANY "friends." I really don't think it means anything.

No, not at all.

I just don't understand WHY it's important to anyone.

Oh yea...I wondered that too... I have tons of friends online but if I didn't I'd be fine w/ it. I have very little friends in real life and I like it that way...in fact, I have to force myself to interact w/ the few I do have... I am a loner... LOL

I guess it's the whole age of social networking. You may have hundreds of Facebook "friends," but do you really KNOW any of them?

No...Not ALL of them...I have tons of those 2 but only talk 2 a few.

I'm very anti-social so having friends is something I actually don't like... LOL! Drives my hubby crazy cuz he's very social!

In fact I am talking 2 u way too much...gotta go!!! LOL! J/K!

LOL..this cracks me up!

Public announcement: I am free to be anyone's friend that wants me. Please bear in mind, that being my friend constitutes an unwritten agreement that you will lend me whatever scrappy thing I'm out of or need to use, be here at 2am for me when I am stuck on a LO, lend me money when I fall short of getting the cart/paper pack/or (whatever it is you ppl buy lol) let me slobber on your shoulder when someone criticizes my work, etc etc etc... lol...not really.

Actually, I don't know what the advantage to having "friends" on here is. When I see someone's work I admire, I will usually just add them as a fav. artist, and then I get to keep track of all their new stuff they post. That's pretty much all I can think of I wanna do, and the "fav artist" feature works for that. Is there something more I'm not knowing about if a person is a friend? Really. I don't know.

That being said, I add friends all the time. The more the merrier, I say! heehee

I've requested some, and most accepted. The only one that didn't is very 'popular'...published, on design teams, and probably waaaaaaaaaay too good at sb'ing and busy for someone like me. LOL

I think the requests for friends have to do with feeling your work appreciated and liked.

Hi dear,

Please don't feel so down! I've been having a super rough month (ok, who am I kidding, rough 2.5 years, but that's a whole other story ) too and would welcome the chance to make new scrapbooking friends.

I'm going to buzz over to your profile right now and add you (I'm pretty new to this site, so I don't have too many friends here yet either).

Sending warm smiles & tons of cheerful hugs your way!

Do you guys accept anyone as friends? I've always just "friended" people who's work I like or have similar styles or who I chat w/ in this here forum area. Similar to the way I would make friends in the "real" world (meaning non-virtual). I'm not against random friending but I am curious how others (possibly more normal people) do it.

hi. i think having friends on this site makes you feel good, esp when you see them around the site. the familiarity makes this a nice place to be.

i accept anyone as a friend and those that frequest the same threads as i do i tag as best friends so i see their activity stream first. about every 6 months i go through my friends list and remove any that dont post on the site for over year.

on facebook, i only befriend people i know "in real life" or have actively known on sb.com for a year or more. (i've been on here for 3 years so far)

have a great weekend!

Having friends on here is more important to some people than to others,,,,,plain and simple. I like most people, and I will generally accept any friend request. In the two years I've been here, I've NOT accepted maybe one,,,and UNfriended maybe one. Just like IRL, some people have a ton of casual friends, and some people have one or three really good friends,,,,

i don't know that there's a right or a wrong on this one,,,,,It's just personality type.

Friend request sent. Don’t feel bad. I have been here for 2 years now and I only have 6 friends. All but 2 of them are from threads like this one. Well I am looking at the gallery nearly daily. I guess I just don’t speak much. Yeah I am loner type too…..LOL.

I think I just have maybe 1 friend and I guess I never got to into that part of the site I just participate in the forums and look at the gallery.

What is the friend thing about?

I didn't even realize you could have friends until I saw this post-still learning to navigate the forum--I've been "cruising" for over a year and have learned so much! I, too, am the quiet type.
