If someone ignored your friendship invitation, what comes to your mind?

I often think twice or thrice before ignore someone who is inviting me to be a friend on facebook. Well, I have my reasons why I don't want them to be a friend and number one is that I don't know them or never met them before. Second is that I don't want my profile to be full of applications every single day that I open it. But maybe, if someone would ignore me, I will think that that person doesn't want me and my character that's why he/she doesn't approved my invitation. :(

If someone has ignored my friend request I haven't noticed. Does facebook send a notice telling you that you have been ignored? I think I pretty much only add friends I know will accept my request. I ignore requests if I don't know who they are. I have a few friends that will add everyone and anyone because then it gives them more people to help with the farmvilles and other applications. I won't add anyone I don't know because I have pictures of my kids on there.

As far as I know, Facebook doesn't send anyone an alert if you decline but the person obviously can still tell whether you accepted or not. I try not to add anyone I don't know anymore either, though I barely am on FB anymore to begin with.

Yes they don't send an alert if someone declined an invitation but the person knows that he invited another and it was not added to his list of friends so meaning he was turned down.

i am not thinking of bad reason why some people did not accept my invitation. maybe they have already lots of friends no more space, or maybe they are busy , or maybe they just dont like.... so its okey.... who cares???

Not thinking of a bad reason why people don't accept our invitation for friendship on facebook is a good attitude in this situation. It is wonderful to know that people are very much into friendship but it's true that some still have insecurities to face..

Hmm, I have nothing against this thing as most of the time, those who reject my friendship invitation are those who do not know me personally.. So, I don't mind.

I like your message. It's true that we should not feel hurt if a person did not approved our invitation as friendship.

Wow you'll be upset. I think it's a normal feeling if someone was rejected by a friend. However, it should not last that long because there maybe many reasons.

If I ask for someone to join my Facebook friend list and she (or he) declines, it's not such a big deal. As I have no personal photo on my facebook acc, probably the person didn't recognize me. And, after all, if the person doesn't think he is a friend of mine - why bother the stupid people ?

I see that your saying you don't care when people decline your invitation right? But in the last part of your message you called them stupid anyway. I think, that means something more than you don't care am i right?

I don't think I ever have rejected a friend invitation Facebook. Though these days, I'm not in the 'business' of adding every random person. I have added one or two people I don't know but generally I try not too. Come to think of it, I've been meaning to clear out my friend list for some time now primarily because a lot of the people on my friend list I have never met, talked to, or have spoken to quite some time. Like one girl, I probably have not spoken to her in five years now in any form or fashion so I'm not sure why we're on either's friend list. But yeah, I'm like that as well. The big reason I might not would accept is simply because I don't know you.
