Why would someone put you on her friends list, then block you?

Don't you think she should at least tell you why instead of not saying anything?

  • Well, I know that people have requested my friendship and I accepted, then I realized they were homophobes or racist so I blocked them without saying anything. But that is a little different. I wouldn't pay much attention. They probably weren't a real friend but just wanted to nose into your life for a moment.

  • Gotta love that. Its happened to me, with no explanation. I just let it go... it is the nature of the beast.

  • That happened to me...but I knew why. ;-) She never told me why--but I knew it was because I disagreed with her "rules" and because she knows I think Fox News is disgustingly prejudiced. Oh well.....different strokes for different folks,right?

  • Maybe so they can be nosey and see your profile. Then blockyou so you can't see them.

  • Maybe they felt obligated to add you to the friends list and thought you wouldn't know you were blocked? IDK, people do strange things.

  • When you block a person, they do not disappear from your friends list. You have to remove them manually.

    OP Most of my thoughts have been posted here already. It could be she wanted to see what your profile said or that she thought you could be friends and changed her mind. There is no telling why people do these things.

  • How do you know for sure you were blocked? She could also disappear from your friends list because she is now longer a CM member.
