I Don't Know YOU So STOP Asking to be My Facebook Friend

When I rejoined Facebook after deleting my account, I had changed a lot. I have become more reclusive than ever before.

The only thing is I am active on several Facebook pages which could undoubtedly reap unsolicited messages to my other inbox. Well, one of the pages I follow is a game that I play on my tablet. Now that I have been playing for a couple of weeks I am confident that I can help others who are new since the game is fairly easy to understand.

I notice tonight that I have a notification on Facebook so I went to see what it was. I figured a notification of a post to a page I follow or maybe a friend is up late and commented on something I did. This time, that was not the case. I was annoyed to find that a person who managed to INBOX me a message had replied after I politely told them I already am in another kingdom in the game. I figured that was the end of it and he would go away.


I get this new message that once more went to my inbox and I am now perplexed because Facebook should know better than to send some idiot's message there that I don't know. Well this message tonight says to me to "please add him as a contact on Facebook so that we can be friends."

I just about wanted to go through my computer screen and yell to go the heck away!

So once more I, politely, said that this is my private Facebook account just for my personal friends and family. Obviously, this young adult still doesn't understand that means no strangers and replied again saying that I (ME!) must be INSECURE to not want to add him.


I replied one last time and said that I am not insecure and that it isn't the reason why. I wanted to yell back to leave me the heck alone! However, I am not that irritated. I just don't want to be bothered by such nonsense on there! I'm entitled to my privacy but, obviously, he doesn't get that.

So he replies back to me and; and I quote, "I can understand.. but wish could be my frnd emoticon :smile: anyways.. if u wish u cn me on whatsaap or hike i,m there emoticon :smile: "

Grrrrrr.... I didn't even bother replying. I just want to punch him.

Perhaps you should have had blocked him so that he can no longer send you any more messages.

you should be able to block him so you never hear from the creep again

There's always the therapeutic route of voodoo dolls.

I think I finally got through to him but I don't know. Maybe mama told him it was bedtime.

CountryWine wrote on February 6, 2015, 8:35 AM

He wasn't being a creep. It was just annoying that he wasn't getting the hint even though I was really straight forward. I really don't add people I don't know on there anymore. I interact with these Facebook pages and next thing I know some ding dong sees "Oh a female!" I won't consider blocking him unless he comes back at me again even though I didn't reply after his quote aforementioned.

CountryWine wrote on February 6, 2015, 8:36 AM

LOL If only I believed in it. I probably would try it. People just get so annoying to me now.

As the video on Facebook showed, we all are a-holes.

That said, I have discovered a new found love for people at large, but not all people qualify for it.

Jason and Jimbo seem to think my new kidney is influencing me as a nicer, kinder person. I try to bring some laughter and warmth to everyon's day.

you can either ignore him or block this person, i do not blame you though it can be extremely annoying and might be even scary

AudreyHowitt wrote on February 6, 2015, 2:06 PM

I would think about blocking him

CountryWine wrote on February 6, 2015, 6:49 PM

Ahhhh so you figured me out on Facebook!!! LOL I shared that video.

CountryWine wrote on February 6, 2015, 6:51 PM

Scary, no. I don't intimidate well at all. I just straight up get into people's face when they get in mine.

CountryWine wrote on February 6, 2015, 6:51 PM

I only will if he comes back

There is a blocking system in the setting. Check it. I had to unfriend a lot of friends in Facebook because I don't see any reasons anymore in having them in my orbit.

CountryWine wrote on February 8, 2015, 3:07 AM

He hasn't come back so I may not have to block him.

When I see a friend request come up or a message comes through, I just ignore it. If I know the person, or know of the person, I might add them, but usually I don't.

CountryWine wrote on February 9, 2015, 3:44 AM

I normally don't get anything from other people but I comment on stuff now all over Facebook.

For resons such as this I have as little to do with Facebook as I can, really only keeping in touch with selected few and posting some writing links.

CountryWine wrote on February 9, 2015, 3:45 PM

That is fine and dandy but when you are a active as an advocate for wildlife and conservation along with environmentalism it's hard not to post a comment on an article I read on there.

MelissaE wrote on February 9, 2015, 5:01 PM

I rarely get on Facebook anymore. I really need to update a few pages that I manage, but I'm too busy. Plus, I don't see that Facebook helps my business at all.

CountryWine wrote on February 9, 2015, 6:52 PM

You would have to pay for ads on there to get traffic.

MelissaE wrote on February 9, 2015, 7:51 PM

Yes, I paid for some and got a few extra likes. It didn't transfer into sales for my business though. Facebook needs to share the revenue.

CountryWine wrote on February 10, 2015, 6:03 AM

They don't need to share the revenue with advertisers. However, giving an incentive like 30% off on ad purchases would be good. Advertising takes a lot of work. I know. I did it for a year.

Glenn wrote on February 28, 2015, 12:15 PM

Yes indeed, it's best not to keep replying. There's no point to it. It sounds likes something is terribly wrong with that fellow. In any case, I can relate to your experience. I closed my facebook account too, and never came back. Why? Because when I first opened my account, I immediately started getting friend requests from people I didn't know. For the fun of it I asked where I knew them from. They never responded.

CountryWine wrote on March 1, 2015, 5:20 PM

They don't respond because they are most likely up to no good. At least from my experience is seems that way.

Glenn wrote on March 4, 2015, 3:53 PM

CountryWine - Right! I never do expect them to respond for that reason. I just ask them for the fun of it, then their stupidity shows through if they respond or not. I actually did get a reply once from someone saying they had no idea who I am but they really wanted to just be my friend.
