I was just wondering why some people take forever to accept your friend request. I know this one request has not been accepted and i see her on here everyday. She is responding to discussions. Does she not know she has a friend request? I don't think she is a nuby here.

It might be that some people would accept your friend request if your really friends with that person. But on my part, I just accept it. How about you?

Ow, I see. That is good. But it would be better if you would be the one to request for a friend. Right? You would sound more friendly if you do that.

Yeah but usually the people who send me request i don't know them but accept anyways. I would request them but if i hadn't seen them until that day its kind of hard.

I don't know why it takes some people so long. I requested someone as a friend about a week ago and they haven't accepted yet. I just leave the request there and if they accept, they do, if not, owell.

Hi, It depends upon the principles of a person yaar. May be she is avoiding strange person's contact. Few people are narrow minded like this. But nothing is gained or lost being narrow minded. So you wait and see, who knows the next day she may accept your invitation :)) Take care:))

At first I used to take the words literally. I thought someone was trying to get to be my friend. I happen to take friendship seriously, so I tried to pay attention to the types of resposes people gave to see if they were the kind of person I wanted to be friends with. Then I realized that it wasn't really all that serious. People are just collecting friends here---some will be people that they will develop friendships with and some will just be members of their collection. I also wasn't sure about the harrassment factor...I didn't want to be harangued by a bunch of people I really didn't know. Don't take it personally if someone doesn't respond to a friend request. It really depends on what motivates them to be on MyLot in the first place.
