Totally not IF related - so if you've come here only for that, feel free to skip this one.
I'm on Facebook. Isn't everyone? I've found it to be a very cool way to reconnect, and stay connected with a lot of my old school friends, and some family members that I don't see very often. I'm not one of those people who adds everyone I've ever known, worked with, dated, been related to, etc. I only add people that I actually consider my 'friends'.
Up until recently, I hadn't gotten a friend request from anyone that I wasn't interested in adding. But lately, I've got three..
1) a cousin. she lives here in my town. we have no relationship - her mother and my father are half-siblings. They and we never got along. I don't know what she's looking for from me, and I'm afraid that if I add her then she will want to get together with me, which is something I have no interest in.
2) an old college roommate. We parted strangely. Actually, I cut her off because I felt like she was kind of stalking me. Did you ever see the movie "Single White Female"? kind of like that. She said she googled me, saw that I was on FB, and so she joined FB. eew, somebody joined FB just so they could track me down?
3) the latest and wierdest today - an old college boyfriend. He dumped me. But then he was kindof obsessed over me for years. He used to call me late at night when he was drunk and tell me what a mistake he made. He actually called me the night before his wedding. I see in his FB profile that he's married - I wonder if it's that wife.
What to do about these people? So far I have just ignored these friend requests.
