Default Unanswered: Friend request in WW

Not really sure where this goes. I logged on yesterday and had a friend request from someone I did not know. I said no to the request. But I am wondering how this person got my name. Does anyone know?

Talking Re: Friend request in WW

I know the answer to this one..YAY! They visited your "My Page" by requesting to meet somebody new, then requested to be your friend. They must have seen something on your My Page that they wanted to become friends. I think I get a lot of requests because I love checkers. This way if they are in the Tournament area and I'm available, they ask me to play checkers. Hope this helped answer your question. SMILE

Great answer! Also, some people will add usernames that they see laying around on a website, if you posted it on any. Other people are just lonely, and don't have many friends so they'll guess and add random people. Then, maybe you did tell a friend or relative your username, and they didn't tell you theirs, or the user didn't fit them, so there's a small chance it wasn't totally random.

They might have wanted friends so they did every random username they could think of. They might have saw your MyPage and then requested a friend request. That's all I could think of.

They most likley visited your "my page" page in WW.
On there people can click a tab labled "meet new people"
and that's how the person may have found you. They then
click the tab on your "my page" page that says "add as friend"
(if you have one of those).

This post is absolutely correct! It's beyond probable that this person requested to meet someone new, and ended up on your 'My Page' page. Maybe they have something in common with you, so they wanted to become your buddy. They also might have met you in the Tournament Arena when you played a PVP game against eachother, and you logged out as soon as the PVP game was over. They might have requested to be your friend there, but when you logged out, the request went straight to your home page, and when you logged in, that's where you found it. Hope I was able to help!

My granddaughter got a friend request from some whose name was very similar to hers. Kind of like Dinomite and the person was Dinomyte...When you are signing up for a username it will tell you if that name is already taken and that is what happened in her case
But otherwise, I have to agree with Debs If you have a My Page and someone likes it, they can invite you to be a friend. I have gotten a couple of contacts that way, too

Other members pretty much have this answered, but there are many ways to figure it out. That member could have easily read one of your posts or seen a post. That's how most members meet each other. You could have also started a thread that they saw or liked what you posted for another member. I've had people say that, from my posts, that they thought I was very kind & nice and they thought I could be a good friend. They could've even went to your profile pages. There are so many ways that that member saw your user. You could always ask that member why they want to be your friend. I've had to do that quite a few times. Hope I've helped! (^_^)
