Re: Can't believe people

I have people who are acquaintances as "friends", and depending on who they are might accept a friend request from them even if I only met them once or wasn't sure I'd ever see them again - if they were interesting in person they might be interesting online. You can always remove them later.

What I don't do is accept requests from people I've never met. If I see there are some mutual friends I might give them a closer look wondering "maybe I know them and just don't remember" but I figure most friend requests out of the blue are scams of some sort, or desperately lonely people that I don't want to deal with.
