Ohh…facebook. It can be so much fun for keeping up with family and friends, but also such a source of drama. When I created my facebook account in college, I added nearly every person that I knew, and accepted nearly every friend request that I got. However, as the site grew more popular, I began to pare down my friends list to people that I actually wanted to keep up with. For example, there was a girl that I was once friends with in highschool…we had a falling out our senior year. With the advent of facebook, however, she friend requested me a few years later. I accepted and while she was extremely cordial, I never could quite come around. I don’t really harbor any resentment toward this person, but I just don’t really want her following my life, nor do I really care to follow hers. So, I removed her from my friends list, and didn’t think too much about it. A few weeks ago, I noticed that she had started following me on pinterest. I thought that was odd, but didn’t think too much about it. Then today, she sent me a friend request on facebook. I have so far just ignored it. Does this strike anyone else as odd? Is this someone trying to be a drama queen, or simply someone trying to be friendly?

She’s probably just trying to be friendly. I would just ignore the request.

Probably just wants to be friendly and also keep up on your life and what is going on!
Don’t take Facebook too seriously 😉

@tnbellebee: Sounds like being friendly, if she was largely cordial to you before. But I understand where you’re coming from. This girl I went to HS with but wasn’t particularly nice to me sent me request after request, and I couldn’t understand why? I kept ignoring them, but she sent multiples. Just get the hint, woman!

that’s a bit odd. ignore it.
i just recently got a fb friend request from a girl that i used to work with. i never really cared for her. i just didn’t trust her. she’s the kind of person who would stab you in the back. we were never friends. i have just completely ignored the request. she probably just wants to be nosey and check out my wedding pics (and new husband).

I think that’s the case here. I ordinarily would be friendly and accept if she hadn’t been so catty to me in HS. I recently changed my profile picture to a wedding picture and I’m sure she just wants to be nosy. (I’m always curious about people’s weddings as well.) Her best friend is also on my friends list, and I’m sure that that is how she noticed the slight. Oh well.

You are right! 🙂 It has become my main source of communicating with my family and friends that are far away and therefore feels pretty intimate to me…however, I know that that is not the case with lots of people.

I log in Pinterest via FB and I noticed that people I unfriended on FB are still repinning and liking my Pins. I guess you have to actually block them on Pinterest?
