This person probably doesn't have harsh feelings against you, they just simply have their reason. So please don't complain to them, or get mad. Unless of course they say it rudely such as "Eww, No way!"

Examples::

member1: Hi, do you want to be friends?

member2: Uhhh, no way... :/

member1: Umm, okay... thanks anyway...

----------------------------

member1: Hi, want to be friends?

member2: Um, no thank you. I have my reason, sorry.

member1: That was RUDE! All I wanted to do was be your friend! Gosh, jerk!

-----------------------------

member1: Want to be friends?

member2: No thank you, I have my reason, and it has nothing to do with you-- please don't be offended.

member1: That's fine But if you'd like we could still talk.

---------------------------

Which was best? If you picked three, good job. I've seen this happen a few times, and I do ALWAYS accept friends requests... but some people don't and please respect their reason.

Rep! Great reminder! People have their reasons. Their is only a few members on here that I won't be friends with because they were rude too me and never said sorry. Whenever I answer no,I tell the person politely,why I answered no. Great Thread!

I agree with your post as well. I like too get too too know the person before I send them a friend request or accept theirs.

Good reminder. Sometimes you find your friend is getting way too long.

I think the same applies if someone "cleans up" their friends list and you find you are no longer on it.

I think this is a nice reminder to everyone. I usually accept friend requests, but sometimes I don't. I have my reasons. I'm sure there are many other people out there that do this too.

Great thread!

But I agreee with both points...if you decline a friend request or if you are on the receiving end of that decline, handling it with discretion and respect.
I agree!
Good thread;good reminder.

Excellent reminder. I always accept friend requests that I recieve, even if I've never met them on here. It still brightens their day when they see someone has acepted to be their friend.

And you never know... maybe some kids aren't allowed to be friends with people they don't know in real life on here, or maybe they have a different reason.

Default Re: Respect if Declined :)

I agree. I believe that you shouldn't decline them at all, but if you feel the need then number three is the way to go.

I also think o should talk to a user before asking to be friends.

Like this: Hi! I love your avvie. Want to be friends?

Mmm-hmm, some peopel just have either people they know from real life or their closest firends on their list. I think I'm going to soon be one of those people, I don't want to hurt anybody, but someone comes up to me like 5 months ago, wanna be friends, we exchange a word or two, haven't seen em since, buh-bye.

You've gotten some good advice. I'm always careful who I befriend, even on WI.
It's always better to be save than sorry. Thanks to canonymous for the advice on cleaning up our friends list.
