I Will Not Accept Random Friend Requests

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 28 People

    Although I'm a very friendly person,

    unless I've interacted with someone and I feel like we share things in common, I generally do not accept random friend requests. In fact, for the most part, I don't even check to see who's sent me a request. My friend request button just remains lit up.

    Not At The Moment

    I've been doing this for quite some time, accepting a friend request then delete them after no interaction at all, I don't add friend collectors either. I'm keeping a small circle.
