Is there a point? I get a lot of friend requests and I didn't used to accept them but not I do and I have like over 40 ha ha and we don't talk... I don't get it. Do you creep your "friends" profiles on here? :)
I don't really think you add friends on here to necessarily talk to them, but of course you can. It's more like you add them because you might like their questions or their answers. Kind of showing gratitude for something they said. Or maybe you share the same point of views.
But I'm sure sometimes people are just trolling and adding the hot people.
I have sent one request out and it was unanswered. I have been friend requested and chat with anyone who pops online. I'll talk about basically anything, and if someone doesn't come online in a few days, I may send them a message to learn about them and just talk.
The only point I see is if you want to have a personal chat with them. I never give friend requests on here, but there are a couple of girls who used to chat with me all the time (prior to the whole meeboo, or whatever thing took over).
Funny cos I have like 30 friends on here and only maximum 3 comes online, and sometimes 5 (on a really rare moon) to chat or something...But again some rare ones (girls I have not talked to since I added them) come online once in a while and when I say hi, they immediately log off...im like OK :/ it was nice to meet you.
Some people just seem to "collect" other people. Others want to chat (whatever that will entail). Especially since you can't write on someone's wall or send a message without permission anymore, there'll be a lot more adding here and there :p
I accept then check out the profile, if they appear sane leave them. I tend not to accept those who add 1001 girls, I'm not here to flirt with some random on the net. girls to guys on my friends list 1:3...skewered :/
I usually don't add or except requests because then people expect you to chat with them and I'm not a very chatty person. Whenever I send friend requests it's usually because I really like your style of asking/answering questions.
No point to it that's why I don't add peopr
They friend you just for the sake of been friendly and/or because they want to see the rest of your pics and profile information. They may also want to read your question/comment history. If it's a new user friending, it could be a mean troll trying to keep a track on you, maybe looking for something offensive in your profile or activities on the forum to report and get you in trouble.
