Facebook friends request- I don't get it:P

So, isn't it funny when you get a random friend request on Facebook. You don't recognize them. Then you realize they're yet another one of those people you knew for 10+ years in school. The entire time you were never friends, maybe even more like enemies. It's been clear they seek out no friendship with you in Real Life even to this day. But hey, let's be friends on facebook?

It doesn't upset me. I just don't get it. I've even "accepted" their request, and then you see them at a function and their still the same wierd, insecure snooty person they've always been. Why contact me? Sillies;)

  • I don't know it seems to me that sometimes it's because we have grown up and would like to think the person we ask to be friends with has too. I am a person who discovers people on face book who I hadn't seen in years sometimes even relitives I didn't even know I had so I ask to be their friends not because I think I am better than them or want to find out how life has trated them but to genuinly be there friend. It's sad when people who don't know you very well judge you.

  • Its true some people genuinely want to try to be friends. But when you see them and they ignore you or act snotty i would not think this is the case.

  • I'm very careful in whom I accept and whom I send out invites too. In fact for thelongest time I held out on sending an invite to a friend, who moved to SC so we don't get to talk to him much, wife because while I wanted to get toknow here wasn't sure how it'd go over. Finally when I realized I was checking everyday, her statuses arent blocked for news about her hubs, who's off at marine bootcamp, and pics of their new baby boy who's onlya month older than ours it was time to send a message bite teh bullet and work on my social skills. Its been a bit awkward but I think its' rewarding in the end. But yeah just adding up friends. Don't do taht, can't see the point. I actually want to see the updates for the people I care about and not a bunch of junk on people I don't.

  • I agree. But I have an issue with a "friend" I have recently had. We had a falling out, never talked anymore so I was cleaning out my facebook one day and deleted her. We NEVER talk, so why keep her on there. She got extremly upset! Crying to a mutual friend we have. I explained to that friend why I had deleted her. Even when I would see this "friend" in a store (we live in a very small town), I would say him and she would ignore me! It is just strange to me why facebook friends are so important to some people!

  • oops..I mean, I would say hi (not him)

    Answer by ILoveCade at 4:06 AM on Nov. 14, 2010

  • for the record;) I did give them the benefit of the doubt that maybe they had finally grown up. hence....the accepting friend request. but when you see them in real life and they're still as silly as before..... wierd....Don't contact me to just add to you number of "friends".
