    Default Frienship requests?

    Just a question: what is the added value?
    I did and do get requests, but the only thing that really happens is that the inbox from my email is overloaded with messages...
    I do love all of you, really, but I don't do friendship requests.
    I love reading all of your stories and I do follow these, even without the friendship thing.
    As some of you know, I don't live in a house, we live in our RV and are always travelling around.
    Internet is sometimes hard to find.
    I would feel that I would let you down (in fact, I did feel that way with some of you), by not honoring those requests.
    I love the fact that some of you want to be my friend, but this is the reason I don't get into that.
    I hope that none of you feel offended, because that is not my intention at all.
    Like I said, I feel part of a very special family here, but those requests don't work for me.
    That is all, nothing personal whatsoever.
    I just wanted to share this...
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    You can also add all your new friends and just disactivate the email notification thing...many people like to have "friends" that way they can follow what you write...

    Hope you are well!!

    How do I deactivate the email notifications? I don't keep up with my email as often as I should and my inbox is loaded with messages.

    It's not really easy at first.
    Go to Control panel (on top) then general setting and you pick what you want to keep

    I don't do them anymore either. I'm friends with everyone I hope! The friends I made 5 years ago are all gone from this site.

    I had to turn off all my notifications from this site because my phone was blowing up with notifications. So occasionally I miss things but there is no way I could keep getting all the notifications. As for adding friends on here....I don't think it really makes a difference.
