If everyone wants to be friends on this site, then why isn't everyone a paid member where they can actually send emails? The situation with this site is that so few are actually paid members who can send emails. Even if they send emails, there is no guarantee that they will ever get a reply. It's a real shame but it isn't so easy to find someone who is genuine and says what they mean and means what they say on line.
My reason for that, and maybe others' is because we can't afford a membership. I'm barely able to pay my bills, never mind become a regular member. Plus, I don't have a credit card, so it's a moot point.
