About Me

Looking for someone to do Private swap with for LOL Dolls, LOL Little Sisters and LOL Pets!

Regarding the '3' -- the swap was a re-send as the first one was sent in a handmade package (my own stupid idea) and the weight was too much so I'm guessing it fell apart and that was that. It was an expensive swap. I had ordered a FLOW Magazine for it which was over $25 . I did order another Flow Magazine but because of the cost..it took me quite a while to re-send. I was in contact with the recipient the entire time and did not disappear or ignore messages or anything like that. I am always courteous and polite and 100% always willing to fulfill my swap obligations 150%.

Ratings are important to all of us and when we are rated poorly it hits a pit in your stomach. At least it does for me. I am judged by swap hostesses and have even been expelled from swaps (postcard swaps!) for the '3' rating. I encourage everyone here to be kind when rating. Even a 3 can damage someone's reputation. I was expelled from a KINDNESS group for receiving a 3........ What does that tell you about people?

I always strive to be nice, to be considerate and to always really think hard before rating someone down. Sure if someone is constantly sending late or flaking I'd be sure to rate accordingly.

Life is short and kindness truly matters.

be nice
