    I add people.

    Only people I know in real life, and have known for more than 1 second, but other than that I assume they will be delighted to see my awesomely interesting status updates...

    Plus I often forget if I have added someone, so I don't dwell on it if they don't accept me. And there's a high chance that, if they ignore me, then I'll re-add them as I won't remember that I added them in the first place.

    Sooo.... it works well for me, being in my happy little bubble where no one has rejected me.

    But if there is someone (multiple someones?) out there who keeps hitting ignore, and I keep adding (like an endearing tail wagging labrador, I think, not like a stalker at all...) then I do apologise.

    I have to be the person to add people, coz my setting are so strict no one can find me (unless you are a friend of a friend), and of they do then they can't add me. I do have it set so friends of friends can message me though.
    Otherwise, if people want to add me to fb from bh, I don't mind really, just PM me and ask

    So not only is she afraid of "catching gay" but she's also afraid you might send the "gay virus" to her computer?! :-S

    One thing I fear is wanting to add people from BubHub (some of which have posted in this thread) and I fear rejection from that! The old "I like them from their posts/ comments but do they even notice/like me?!" *thinks back to "am I invisible" thread*
    I notice you and I like you from your posts
    I must have missed that 'am I invisible' thread, I considered starting one myself but was afraid noone would reply... Lol I just kept thinking 'social suicide'

    Aw thanks MrsTiggyWinkle! The "invisible" thread showed that a lot of Hubbers felt they went unnoticed but others were pointing out how much they WERE noticed. It was quite a lovefest!

    For the record, if anyone ever wanted to add me on Facebook please feel free to PM me and I'll promise I'll add you!

    I only add people that I feel confident will accept my request - I have a total fear of rejection! I wouldn't add someone I'd only met a couple of times as I think they'll probably think 'who the f are you'?!!!

    Sometimes I feel like I'm not a very memorable person to those who meet me. Comes from high school where I remember being constantly asked if I was the new girl even though I started year 7 with everyone else at the very start!

    I once sent a friend request to an old work colleague (we were friends IRL too), and weeks later it was still pending. I figured she must not have been interested in my frienship so I withdrew the request! The real reason may have been that she just wasn't a regular checker of FB but I guess I'll never know
