Are you still waiting for your friend request to be accepted on Facebook?

I have asked many people to be their friends. Some of them have accepted my friend request so far. Now, I am waiting on my half sister to accept my friend request, but she just won't. I have been waiting on her request for almost a week now. She comments on my baby's sister comments and what not. She just won't accept my friend request. Me and my baby sister hardly ever communicated with her like that. If she talked to anyone, it was to my sister and that would be once and every blue moon. So, I plan to send her a message asking her why she has not accepted my friend request. Now my cousin on the other hand has not accepted my friend request either. I have been awaiting her acceptance for almost, seven months now. She has changed her facebook picture though. So, that means she had to have seen my request. I think that I sent her a message. Now, I have my picture up. I don't know what is the deal with my family members not accepting my friend request, but I am going to find out why. I will contact them for the last time, and if they don't accept my friend request, I will consider this their lost. It breaks my heart to see people that I love and that is my blood acting all shady with me. It is not fair that I am not chosen to be as their friend too. But I am not going to worry about it. I am going to still be me.

Don't worry, I didn't have a bad experience. It just took up my time to actually meet the people in person. Be happy.

I must admit that I have friend requests sitting on my facebook page that are waiting on me to accept. Most people that sent the request are just long lost acquaintances that I wouldn't really consider a close friend. So, I let it sit for a while, until such time that I get the urge to accept FR's. And when I do, I do a whole lot. But I don't know what to say about your family who just woudn't accept them. It is strange!

Dear friend, In my face book I do have less friends, may be I hardly go in search of friends. But I could see there are people with more than thousands of friends. For me there are more friends in my mylot that facebook.

I actual don't add friends I wait for them to add me. I guess time pass and you just don't seem as close as it use to. And yes just think it is there lost, that is how I would see it also.

Hi Cream97! Don´t worry about her, my half sister and I do not even talk to each other. I have not looked for my cousins on FB, and I sing at masses... and sometimes people show me their disagreement without singing with me. Or just ignoring me, or worst, pointing me or critizice me. So... we shouldn´t worry about it, and as you say " Still being us!"... Blessings!... Dainy

Hi cream, I guess something unpleasant had passed between you for which she is not accepting your friendship request. But as you have come forward she should have accepted it. If it goes like this for a long time ultimately the relation would break forever. In my case, I do not have so many friends on facebook. Some of them are from my request and some from others. There is no pending issues.

Hi dear, I got this facebook account about 5 years back and I am not so interested to go through with the site. When I created my facebook account for the first time, I was no at all familiar with the system and not know how it was working. When I was just playing around with the site, I found one girl and asked for friend request and after few days later on when I logged in, one of the friend from her friend list were asking who is this guy and all. I stopped there and I didn't respondent to it also. Still she is there in my friend list and I never asked anyone to get into my friend list. I am not a frequent visitor or I never updated also. But there are few people who come forward for asking friendship and I say ok to it. Now I think I need to professionally manage my home page with my own interest and thinking of my own way of doing as many are asking me about my facebook address. Regards, Thank-s

I have some family members that haven't accepted me yet but I figured maybe they haven't seen it yet because I've had some that didn't get accepted for a long time. If someone didn't accept me for 7 months I would tell them that I gave you an invitation to be my friend and you didn't accept it yet. Did you explain who you were. Some people even family doesn't know who we are because of our last name changing.Hopefully they accept your invitation. That is upsetting.

There you go girl. You have made the first step, maybe even the second one too. If they don't accept you then it is there loss. You are a terrific person. I have family like that. They only want to be around when they want something. I don't want family/friends like that. If you can't be friends all the time then I don't have time for you. It's your loss not mine.... Don't beg them girl, you are better than that. They are losing out. Too bad they don't find the time to get to know you for who you are.

How weird! It would be nice if she would tell you. Maybe she doesn't know. Ofcourse it hurts you but maybe you are better off. People can be so cold sometimes. They just don't think! It is crazy. I hope she will communicate with you at some point and clarify things. I am such a curious person it would drive me buggy.

I finally got a FB account last year after a lot of my friends who all live other place asked me to join. I don't even use it that much. One person I was waiting on for about a year was an old roommate. I thought we were really cool but I guess not since he never accepted me but he is friends with my other friends. I have a couple people like that. I don't use my real name on my account but I wrote them to tell them it was me. Oh well. I guess they weren't as good friends as I thought they were.

Maybe you're just being paranoid. I invited many people as well but I didn't mind if they rejected me. They might have since it has been almost a year ago since I have invited them.
