I Will Not Accept Random Friend Requests

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26 People

    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.

    Although I'm a very friendly person,
