In case some of you are wondering why I am making this request, and not just accepting every Tom, Dick and Harry who comes along, it is because there have been a number of occasions in the past where someone has sent me a friend request — which I have then accepted — only to have them turn around literally a few minutes later, and unfriend me. I don’t know if it was because they saw something on my timeline or page which offended them or which they didn’t agree with, or what.
But the point is, this kind of indecisive behavior irks me. Why? Well, because after someone sends me a friend request, I will take the time to visit their timeline in order to determine if they are a Christian, and to see exactly what they believe, what kinds of things they post, what kind of language they use, who their friends are, etc. In other words, I vet each person individually.
If I determine that we might be good friends, and then approve their friend request, only to have them turn around minutes later and unfriend me, yes, that rubs me the wrong way. In short, make sure that you really do wish to be my friend before sending me your friend request.
Thanks so much for your consideration. I appreciate it!
