I am another that hates to send friend requests.
I am happy to get them but too much of a scaredy cat to send them.
I'm a reluctant adder, but luckily I do get my courage up three times a year - or I wouldn't be friends with quite a few of you lot!
I don't send friend requests ever lol
Especially hubbub etc, I tried that once and our of four only 1 lasted longer than 6 months :/
And it made me all jeepers wtf did I do (yes I am socially awkward)
Sent from my MB526 using BubHub
I am a very cautious adder, due to fear of rejection.
Oh, to be carefree.
And a bit paranoid. For example, I have created a second facebook account for my DIG, as I didn't really want worlds to collide, and the facebook group is so big (like 80 people) and none were really familar from bubhub.
Whereas most people I've added from BH, I've either met or they have been posting for a long time that I feel that I "know" them, as much as you can.
I'm just slack at adding people, but Im great at accepting *wink wink*.
My FB has been pretty boring of late. I seem to go through spurts of posting a dozen times a day, to nothing for weeks.... So if you do want to add me expect boring for a while!!
No fear of rejection, which is weird because I used to have major issues with shyness when I was younger. I only add people I believe would like to be added, and I've never had a rejection on FB. I've been unfriended by at least 2 people for reasons I didn't know, or really care about frankly. They were people I knew from school but didn't have much to do with (pretendships ).
I do have a bit of the opposite - worrying about offending those I DON'T want to add who send a request. I've blocked every past manager I've had since I know some of them would have added me and I don't want to explain to them why I have no desire to be FB friends with them. The mother of someone I went to school with (and who is on my friends list) tried to add me a few nights ago and I rejected it, she's just a stickybeak, but we come from a small town so if I ran into her it would be a bit awkward.
I've only added one person from BH who was in my IVF group, and I needed to add one of them to join a private FB group.
