Do you find when random people add you as a friend weird?

Everyday I seem to have a few friend requests. I just add them, for the sake of adding them. But do you find it weird that random people add you for no particular reason? Do you accept these requests or do you just ignore them?

I don't find it weird, at first I did because I thought ''Why would someone who doesn't know me add me?'' and in the past i would had asked those persons lots of questions xD but now I find it something normal, some people wanting just to have lots of friends... to some just the number of friends matter, the bigger the better, but there are other points of view out there : ) I also have more in mind but I'm to lazy to write all that :p

It doesn't really bother me, but its just weird that I get so many friend requests from people I don't even know. I guess I will just add them all and join the contest to see how many friends I can get.

I don't find it all that strange. Every so often the page will refresh and I'll realize I have friend requests. They sometimes sit there for hours before I decide to accept them. I don't really think about it, I just do. After all I don't see the harm in it. Nothing ever happens except the occasional privite message.

Yes its sometimes weird adding a friend with no reason.But take it in this way how many friends we have added ,ever we tried to know them?? I think we never either we added up to increase the friend list or we denied because we are not interested. I know mama always says never talk to strangers but hey there can be no harm here:).

I add all of them. I do not know any of them. So, they are all the same to me. There are now a couple of people among my friends whom I actually know. But they are a handful few. The others I do not know anything about. I like to have friends. It helps me to get a lot of discussions as well as responses to my discussions. That is one positive thing of having a friend in here.

Yes, some random people have added me and I do accept it only because there is no real reason not to. Most of the time it is someone who I have responded to or someone who has responded to me, so it is seldom ever a total stranger. I haven't ever ignored a friend request and I will probably always accept any request just for the heck of it.

I just add everyone who requests anyway. I have no reason not to. None of these people have done anything that would not warrant as being added as a friend. So I add them onto the friend count when I request goes in. Perhaps if I had more time, I would be more selective, but it is just much easier for me to hit the accept button right now.

I accept some, I ignore others. Some I think ask because I've responded to them or they to me. I try to limit who I add so as to not to have so many to feel obligated to respond to.
