 So there is this coach on dds softball team. He is very nice and outgoing is married and has a daughter. He "friends" most of the Moms on Facebook. He tried to "friend" me and i hit ignore. I was just not comfortable because he is just a person I know. Most women accept the friend. Would you accept or ignore?

 ignore.....

If they're not related to me. Then they're not on my FB...unless it is a church member...that DH knows.

Thats why I hit it. I only have one male "friend". I feel it is disrespectful to his wife and family.

I would accept since he is a coach for dd's sports team.  It is just one more way to keep in touch for that type of stuff.  I have many opposite gender friends on facebook that i know.  I also have their spouses on my list as well.  I try to be friends with both people and let them know i will not take sides if there is an argument.

Ignore. I don't add people I really don't know and I don't add everyone I meet.

 I would accept.  My ds's baseball team has a facebook group.  If anyone from it friended me I would accept.  I have male friends on my facebook and dh has no issues with it.

Ignore,
Even though he is your dd's softball coach .. no reason to *friend* him
If he has anything to say he'll say it at the games or practices :)

I would have accepted. I've got a few male friends from various high schools and works on my facebook. DH has no problem with it, and if he did - he woudn't know anyway because he doesn't have facebook :)

I only accept a man as a friend if I know him/his family well.  For someone like you described, I would ignore.
