    From someone who joined 3 days ago, hasn't any posts and not given or received any likes.

    They haven't a link on their profile and by the look of it they are asking many people because several have accepted :confused:

    Sorry, but my friends list consists of people I admire, talk to or empathize with!

    I know it's not important but to me it's a mini lie if I befriend someone I don't know or like

    Same here Rona. The folk on my list are members I've come to know over months/years before they were on it.

    Even f I turn someone down, and I do quite a lot. It isn't because I have anything against them, just I don't know them.

    Why do people make friends requests to people they don't know?

    Been here a while but even now I have never sent any friend requests - scared of looking like a mad pushy stalker! Luckily a few have befriended me otherwise I would be friendless :smile5:

    It was probably the same person who sent one to me Rona - I just rejected it. Never blimmin heard of them!!! :rolleyes:

    I'm the same as you, I only accept requests from people that I interact with on here and, even then, it has to be on a frequent basis.

    I also do a cull every so often so if anyone isin't nice to me....... :devil: :lol:

    I just had the same. Actually when I look back at my friends list there are a lot on there I don't know at all and some who no longer post. Think I will have to do a clean up.

    Rona, you were on my list before you left and came back again.

    I only send requests to those I interact with the most, and those I enjoy reading their posts and have similar outlooks etc - my profile page is shut to anyone other than friends so in order to interact with certain people I befriend them so they can talk to me on my profile :)

    If I'm not sure of the person who wants to befriend me I always send them a 'This is me' photo attached to a resume of my questionable mischief first.

    [​IMG]

    If they then decide to decline, I'll spend the rest of eternity pestering their life and souls out.

    If they accept, then I'll make damn sure they wished they hadn't bothered.

    Either way I don't feel the guilt of being mean by refusing to be their friend.
    :)

    I have 12 people on my facebook list :) lol

    I 'left' facebook last year but my best friend has set up a 'group' for her wedding next year and it's where all the bridesmaids can chat, discuss dresses and such like. I actually found out by accident and felt so left out as I was the only one that wasn't in the loop :(
    Counting down til next October when I can finally leave again :D

    Is it Zoopets? I thought it looked like Marketing/Spam. Not rejected it yet but will now.
