Looking for totally superficial, token friends...

edmwndedmwnd Member Posts: 37 Member Member Posts: 37 Member
Look, despite being a member here since 2012, I've only this weekend looked up the community side of things, and as such have no 'friends', and this does seem a little odd, so I'm looking to rectify this social network faux pas asap.

But, to be honest, I'm not really the kind of guy that's going to be on your page every day telling you how awesome you are for eating yoghurt and walking to the grocery store instead of driving. I'm also unlikely to give you a tailor-made 8-week nutrition plan or join you for zumba classes.

So, please let me know if you want to add a fairly disinterested misanthrope who'll appear inoffensively on your list of friends without demanding you hit your targets, but will happily try to cheer you up when your earnest MFP BFFs fail to inspire you with tales of Kale soup and Ketosis.

    As somewhat of an introvert, I'd consider you a perfect friend. Feel free to add me too!

    Hi, I'm in the UK, joined last year and only tonight have taken a good look at the website (iPad freak), also friendless!

    Please do. I find cheerleading all a bit embarrassing (repressed brit here)

    I am somewhat bemused by your request OP - I mean, if you don't really need friends you don't have to have them, you know.
    There are some people on here who are active forum posters and don't have friends - because they dont send or accept friends requests.

    However if you are just looking to build a friends list for whatever reason, you can add me.
    I don't send requests but if anyone sends me one, I accept it.
    I am an active poster on the forums but like you I am not a very active friend.

    Hey...I am just grateful to know that there are other "friends" just as bad as I am...I was beginning to feel a little bad that I wasn't cheering on people for eating under their calorie goals or burning 25 calories for scratching their butt!

    I don't feel so bad any more...not that I ever felt bad...I warn people right up front...sure I'll be your friend...Just don't expect much out of me...

    Meh, add me if you want. I'll like your posts if they're interesting but otherwise kind of coast through the "friendship".

    I am the best superficial, puts-in-the-bare-minimum-effort kind of friend you'll ever have. Although I've heard it said that I'm a pretty mean "Like" button pusher.
  • CupcakesMom2CupcakesMom2 Member Posts: 154 Member Member Posts: 154 Member
    Feel free to add me, I will like some of what you do and sometimes I'll even comment 'Awesome!"

    You had me at "fairly disinterested misanthrope."

    Agreed. This is my favorite kind of friend. :flowerforyou:

    I like your style! I'm here every day, but I don't post much about my health/food activities. I do however actively hit the 'like' button on my friends' posts to help with encouragement. I've been known in the past to post an occasional 'Great job,' or other comments if I feel I can be helpful. But, I don't tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do, ever. I'm normally quite laidback, I do post in the forums from time to time though. I lurk more than anything (besides updating my diary) and use the 'search' button frequently when I need information on something. I've learned so much from doing that. Feel free to add me and I'll do the same. :)
