    I would just do it!  If I were the sibling, and on the receiving end, I’d think it was a nice move.


    Does he have a good relationship with them?  If so, I say go for it . . .

    Definitely add them! FI’s brothers both added me before we’d even met, times are crazy nowadays.

    I added tons of my FI’s friends that I met and his siblings to fb.

    I figured that they may feel awkward doing it so I just went ahead and added them.

    They they tagged me in pics they had and invited me to events and what not. I say go ahed and add them. I feel like it shows them how serious you are about your bf.

    Definitely add them! They will think its a nice move. While I think that it should be the sibling friending the SO (I friended all my brothers girlfriends) because I think it makes the SO feel welcome into the family….I friended all my husbands sisters and brothers in law….dont think it makes a difference at this point!

    Do it!  It’s good to be able to say hi, happy birthday, etc.  I juuuust got their cell phone numbers recently, and it’s only because Fiance was in the hospital and they wanted to be updated on his condition.

    I sent my SIL a friend request that she didn’t accept for about a year… I think it’s a nice gesture though.

    I believe they added me first, but granted they are much younger so they probably didn’t realize how happy it made me.

    I am very close to my SO’s family, including his siblings. I’ve gone out for drinks and shopping several times with his older sister, and his younger brother is usually at our house at least once a week. I’m also close with his Aunt’s and Uncles, and cousins. They are a very tight nit family, and as only my mom and step-dad are here in the state with me, they’ve become my extended family over the last 5 1/2 years. Crap, I get more presents from them for Christmas than I do my own parents!

    My Future Sister-In-Law friended me on FB but we don’t really talk much. When we do talk we have good conversation though. I told her she just wants to keep tabs on me…LOL.

    I think I added them but it was a long time ago so I can’t be sure.  I find usually the best time to add someone is right after you see them in person.  That way it’s like “Oh I just saw this person, maybe I should add them on facebook”, if you’re worried about them reading into it.  Just go for it!

    I would do it! My SO’s sister added me before I met her. It was actually right after we put our relationship on facebook. I thought it was very nice.  After that, I friended my SO’s brother, and he immediately accepted.  My brother friended my SO.
