Throughout my time on LJ, I've really enjoyed meeting all of these fabulous people and making new friends. I love meeting new people, so if you friend me I'll generally opt to friend you back. But if I've never talked to you, I will probably not friend you back. It's nothing personal, it's just that since many of my posts are personal in nature, I like to keep them more private than sharing them with the world wide web, and so much of my journal is friends only. If you'd like to friend me because of my occasional fanfiction or fandom thoughts postings, feel free to do so, as I will generally leave those unlocked.
If you'd like to be my friend or have some issue with friending/defriending that you'd like to discuss with me, just comment here, or message me, or even send me an email. (See my profile for more contact info)
A quick note: Livejournal's use of the word 'friending' for this is not quite accurate, in my opinion. The use of 'defriending' makes it sound so bad, like a huge fallout or something. But really, if I don't friend you back, it doesn't mean I don't like you. It just means that I'm trying to keep my personal posts within a smaller group of people, and feel that this is the best way to protect my privacy and the privacy of those I talk about. Thank you for understanding my wishes; I hope to get to know you soon!
