Yay, Bro. B!!
We can't have poor Jeff sobbing!
Oh good! Shannon too!!!
What happens when a man online wants to be your friend. (Myspace)
I don't want to be rude.
I checked his profile and he's not the type of man I would befriend in person.
Do you just ignore it or tell him no.
I know this sounds really silly but I don't like hurting people's feelings.
I'm too sensitive.
OR.....do I tell him sure, if he wants to be friends with a Christian woman?
And you all thought I had good sense~
Am I just too naive?
If I don't know them, I almost always say no. Too many perverts on myspace, and you are likely to end up reading some very questionable bulletins. A lot of people just like to "collect" friends, or are looking for romantic involvment. Rule of thumb, if you don't know them, or they haven't at least sent you a message to explain who they are, I'd say no.
Thanks, you're right.
This guy lives near my town I noticed.....
I owe no explanation to strangers, do I?
He didn't appear to be a Christian and I hope that I do!!!
No explanation needed. he didn't give you one did he? If you deny him, and he actually knows you, he can send you a message. You have no reason to feel bad. I get 5-10 FAKE friend requests a week at least. Usually from people trying to sell something.
I think this guy is just a player~
All the more reason to deny. You'll likely get a LOT of requests like that. I'll add you as soon a I can get your page to load. It's giving me problems for some reason.
I can't get on it either!
Mine is working again!....it was down all day and I had to send them an email!
Myspace tends to have a lotttt of issues!
This is the stuff I am being bombarded with!
Do they see I am a Christian?

Why would he like to know me? I don't see anything about Christ.....
Yeah I think he's just trolling. Unless I know the person from either real life or online OR they are a band or band promoter, I tend to not add them.
And I go through every once in a while (once a month or so) and delete those that I haven't kept in contact with.
Creepy. Really. Married, in Kuwait, all female friends, some who post semi-Christian sentiments, others that post seduction? I feel dirty .... *goes and takes a shower*
Yeah it is creepy.
I almost went and smacked my son.
I got something nasty and it was in his name! But it wasn't him, just some creep with the same name!
Not that I thought my son would do that, even on accident, but my mouth fell open for a few seconds!
Married and looking for serious relationships at that. Ugh.
And LOL Violet - your poor kiddo!
That's ok, y'all can make it up to me and LEAVE SOME COMMENTS on my Myspace!!!
