FB is just a tool to me. I don't put too much weight on friend requests and TBH I treat it as a simple contacts list.

Of course if a stunning woman requests to add me as a friend I may have some delusions of grandeur for 15 seconds.

If the request isn't in person but purely via FB, those tend to be mostly from Russian mail order brides.

Well, I'd ditch her. I'm not on FB, but if I were I'd rather just keep to family and close friends. It's not like SimHQ where the entire populace hangs on my every word. exitstageleft

I figure it's a friend request, not a #%&*$# buddy request.

Don't get bent because of the little things. Lots of women out there.

Maybe you or your friend mentionned you were best buddies in HS, or that you were in the military, probably told her you were a great guy, posted humorous and/or interesting stuff, and she thought she'd add you. Maybe a generation gap thing (though you don't sound like you're pushing 60 if you're active duty) but this is how Facebook works. Adding someone as friends doesn't even mean you're interested in even being friends. You just want to know what they're up to without actively engaging in communication with them.

I've met people who added all their co-workers on the first day of a new job. My request box has a few of these guys pending confirmation.

Cheers

I turn down friend requests all the time on facebook from people I know and those who know them. You
can determine the amount of drama in your life this way easily. Start seeing to many posts from people
you could care less about. Just hit the little icon on the upper right of their name and hide all posts
from that person. Drama gone. I think I have about half my facebook friends set this way. Nice and quiet.

Yep, a large percentage of FBers friend anyone and everyone they come into contact with, even if they don't ever plan on contacting them again. If she'd given you her NUMBER, on the other hand....

Same goes with Twitter. I keep having people follow me even though I haven't posted anything in a month.
