  • Just friendly. I would only friend someone if they meant something to me

  • There is an easy solution to this. Don't psychoanalyze it. Just don't accept the friendship request. Why all the drama?

  • Some of my old high school friends have found me and wanted to reconnect on facebook. Some I accept and others I ignore. Actually its kind of fun to see how fat they've become when they were such snobby divas in school. Gotta love it!!

  • i have found all my old high school friends that i was close to or they have found me. Its sad that my 2 closest ones i friended accepted me on facebook but we never talk at all. I understand though. I'm sure they are living there very adult lifes now too and probably don't have much time for friends. I know i don't.

  • It depends on the person. Most of the people in high school I accept as I knew them all very well -- very small graduating class. If it's from college, if I talked to them quite a bit I will, but if I only met them once or twice, then I don't. Usually those are the people with 500 friends.

  • I have my FB account just for old acquaintances (and family). I have to find classmates from high school for our reunion so I opened that acct. I'm fine with it

  • I only accept people I know. I have a few that added me from HS that I wasn't really friends with, but we did speak some. I think for some it's a numbers thing. My DH has close to 300 friends on FB, all of which he knows. From hs to work. There are some that I don't accept because we were really not friends in hs and I think they are just trying to boost their friend numbers.
