About24 years old. I am currently in a relationship, so I'm not gonna appreciate any "maybe we can be pen pals or even something more" messages (and I've gotten pm's like that before, A LOT like that before with the exact same wording for whatever reason...most of them female and sorry chikas but I'm straight).
I'm sorry but I also don't just randomly accept people as friends. If I don't know you I will not accept a friend request just because. It's nothing personal, I just like to know people before I accept them as a friend, because I'm not the type to just strike up a conversation with completely random strangers, my age or otherwise. And no, just sending a "hi there" kind of message and trying to have me engage in social interaction such as idle conversation isn't going to help get me to accept you as a friend because thats one of the most awkward, uncomfortable things to me for people to do. However, if you start an rp with me and it lasts more than a few posts or seems promising, I will friend accept you gladly.
Also, anyone wanting to try and get my password forget it. In all my years on Gaia, which is about 11 years now give or take, I've been hacked twice but now I know from the last time, ALL USERS APPEAR WITH A BLUE TITLE IN PM'S. The admin get their own special color, so any of you who happen to see this remember to look at the color of the username if you get a pm from someone claiming to be admin or someone who runs the site. If its blue, they are 100% lieing to you.
