Facebook Fright

Am I the only one out there who won't ask people on facebook to be "friends" because I think they will ignore my request?

Or am I only afraid because I have ignored other people's requests?

Some of those insecurities from high school just won't let you go..........

I have never been afraid to ask for a friend request. To be honest, I probably wouldn't notice.
Nor have I ever ignored a request.
I guess our circumstances are different, but it is just FB. Not enough to waste time worrying over.

"I probably wouldn't notice if one got denied."

Well.....in my defense, I only denied people who were REALLY not my friends. Like seriously NOT MY FRIEND.

I think there has been two.

Did you deny me? You may have since we have never formally met : )

My first friend was Jessica.

I am not even on Facebook. I feel so left behind. Should I take the plunge and get on it?

Kim said...

Exambo-take the plunge. You can be a friend. I will even do the asking.

TSK- I haven't denied you because you haven't asked.

Now that you mentioned it, Jessica asked me too, but under the Karen Forest name. I don't think I accepted....because I wasn't a member and Karen wasn't a real person. TSK-ask me. I won't deny you.

There has been lots of times I haven't sent a friend request for that reason. I can't think of a time I've denied a friend request from someone I actually knew but I've denied request from people I didn't know. I think it's a very common insecurity amongst those of us with weird self-esteem issues! :)
