I can't help feeling sad...
I got a FB friend-request rejection today. It reminds me of when I was in school (long before the Inter-nets) and certain kids would get chummy with all the other kids and completely ignore me like I was The Plague. My mom always used to say that I must have done something really wrong to deserve that kind of treatment. That kind of rejection still hurts today. :cry:

Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 11:30 AM by Tuesday Afternoon
the invitation to be their friend? Maybe that is passive-aggressive. I don't know. Maybe I am just lazy....

I understand NOT wanting to friend someone, it is just that I have never gone to the trouble to Reject someone.

Not even sure I know how. Guess it is a simple process of click on the Reject icon.....

i suppose but i rather reject them. i have added/removed du'ers too
not because i hate them or anything but because i didnt care to hear about whatever drama was happening.

2. Why in the world
would your mother say that to you? Unless I'm taking that statement totally wrong, that's kind of a mean thing to say to a kid, too.

3. I rejected someone the other day
However, I had no idea who the person was, we had no other friends in common, and I didn't want to take a chance that it was a spammer.

8. Your mom wasn't much of a psychologist, was she?
I was a social reject as a young person and I know the hurt. In this case however, whoever rejected you is probably somebody you don't want as a friend now, if you ever did. Fuck 'em. :hug:

9. I have a bunch of FB friend requests that I haven't responded to
I wish folks from here and from other websites that I frequent would use the "send a message" w/ their friend requests that tells me what their monikers are and from where I know them.
