I got a request from my cousin (I cannot stand her) and we havent spoken in years.

Does the site randomly generate mutual contacts and attempt to invite you to their page or is this wench fucking with me.

It's a site for professionals to use for networking. If she requested you then it was from her and not randomly generated.

IDK. This lady that used to work at my job always sends requests to my work email. I never dealt with her directly, and I never used LinkedIn either. *shrugs*

Short answer. She is fucking with you.

The site will recommend connections but the account owner has to press the "connect" button.

LinkedIn is a professional "Facebook". It's a must have for white collar professionals who are job seeking, but useless if you aren't white collar.

I get requests all the time. If you have a linked in account the other person will just import contacts and any contacts that match will send out an automatic request.

If you received a request, she requested you.

I think you can import emails of your contacts and it will generate a response back to your contacts. So if you were a contact in her email it will suggest you if she imported her contacts. It's a professional networking site. Just ignore the request.
