Should I respond to "Friend Request" on FB?

Good evening everyone. My dh has a 20 year old son from a previous marriage. I've just gotten a friend-request from my dh's son and I don't know if I should accept it or just ignore it or say something, I don't know.
I've never met my dh's son and since he lives abroad there haven't been opportunities to get to know him. But I was wondering if the BM would approved of this. Am I thinking too much about this?
DH has his own FB account. I asked him about this and he said it is my decision. DH won't comment on this.

  • Just my opinion but i think you are over thinking it.. I would accept the request. As you already stated you havent had much of a chance to get to know eachother, well here is your chance. And remember if it doesnt work out or becomes a problem you can always unfriend or even block him...and you said he is an adult right?? So he is capable of making his own decisions and obviously want to get to know you!!! I say go for it!!

  • I would say be thankful he it trying to be your friend. Just because you have never met him it does not mean you two can not learn about one another. Perhaps you post more than your DH and he'd like to know what is going on in dad's life via you.

  • I do think you should accept. I think it was brave of him to reach out to you and unless you have concerns for his motives, it would be nice to accept

  • I think if his intentions are good and his hearts in the right place than...sure why not.

  • Accept - he probably is just curious and wants to have more contact with his extended family
