Warning: Extreme first world problem ahead
Does anyone else suffer from an extreme fear of rejection on Facebook? A while ago I added an old school friend and she didn't accept, and it has played on my mind whenever I have wanted to add a new friend. So much so, that I very rarely add people (I just wait to be added. If it doesn't happen, I usually assume they don't like me ).
I am feeling rather socially inept at the moment. I don't usually care if people like me or not, but there is something significant about being 'rejected' on FB.
I never used to have these issues, damn you Facebook!

I add people and forget I did until I see them in my news feed or remember I added them and search them.
If they don't want to be your friend, they're a poohead. I'll be your friend

add away... I add and cull as I feel like it - im one of thos ebad ppl who add highschool ppl I never really liked to see what they have been up to and after a while I delete them (don't worry it is awlays the trendy girls with like 500+ friends - it doesn't hurt her feelings when I cull her im sure)

This is the reason I don't really add people either, I really don't understand those facebookers that add every single person they meet even if they have only known them 5 minutes!

Yeap, i never add anymore for that reason. Am sick and tired of people deleting me as they just want a sticky beak and then delete me and its always the BH people i used to add who would delete after a few days.

I will generally add people I know / have known, but will delete then just as quickly if they are the kind of person who has a fb account to watch people and contribute nothing. That, or if we never actually interact.
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*

No I just avoid ths situation lol, total chicken I only really add people if we have mutually agreed on it outside fb, so there's very little chance of rejection lol. I have added a few friends from the past, and accepted a.few requests from acquaintances etc but I usually end up blocking them cos they fill up my news feed with stuff that I'm not interested in (like 'i'm cooking dinner' followed by I'm eating dinner' followed by 'i'm washing the dishes now' lol)
