Ok here it goes: Was I creepy?
I friended a mom from my town on this site, and on her profile I noticed she was a pageant mom with a four year old daughter. Few days later I was Craigslist, searching for some used Holloween costumes for my children, and noticed some woman, a couple towns away had posted some cute dance/pageant outfits. I thought why not message the lady that I had friended on about them? This lady, I friended here never got back to me, but I know she has logged in. Was I over stepping my bounds? What are the guide lines for being "friends" on CafeMom?

  • It doesn't sound like you were being "creepy". I can only speak for myself but if you were my friend and had done this for me, I would be happy to have a friend who actually listened to me and was trying to help out!

  • I think it sounds fine. If she didn't want you to know those things about her, she shouldn't have put them on her profile. You sound like a nice person. Don't beat yourself up, some people are just bad friends, that's all :)

  • I think what you did was very doesn't sound like you were creepy at all!!! Maybe she is busy and hasn't gotten back to you yet? Don't stress over it.

  • I agree with the others you were not 'creepy'. I think it was very nice that you let her know about the costumes.

  • I don't think it sounds creepy. It's not like you were digging through her trash and found out she's a pageant mom. :-D It sounds nice, what you did and helpful too. Maybe she read it but it takes her a long time to get back to you. I know, for me, I am AWFUL (and I DO think it's rude of me) about returning peoples messages - be it, online or snail mail. I procrastinate and then forget. And then I remember randomly a week later and then return the message.
