How do you deal with randoms asking to be your friend?

Recommended Posts

I just be honest. I tell them that I normally don't add people right away

I said that today and he started using crying smiley faces and told me to make an exception :| I made a run for it (literally).

 

o_o I haven't had that happen to me yet. What I did have happen once was a guy starting to beg, plead, then started with some swearing until I told them they were being really selfish asking me to remove my friend just for them. That got them to hush up quick. :P

I just say, "but we just met, I don't add people on the first date!"

Gives a laugh and a little light hearted way of letting people down :P

I add randoms o.o as my f/l has 7 ppl in it.

delete them if they suck though.

gotta love not playing for 5-6 years then coming back :)

 

When i actually had friends i said, my f/l is full. cus it really was full.


Be polite. Be efficient. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

useually i just say "no thanks"

and if they persist and it gets annoying, there's this lovely red fella in the lower right corner of the screen, also known as the ignore list

First they came to fishing

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing;

Then they came to the yews

and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews;

Then they came for the ores

and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores;

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

This one knew they forgot to say something in their post. #-o

 

This would be the other good response to nail a random person with when they ask you to add them. :)

I tend to add and talk with just about anyone who wants to, of course fl gets cleansed about every 6 months, or when I scroll to the bottom and see random names.

keeping public chat off avoids those sorts of things.. that way i don't have to feel bad for not answering randoms because i don't see their questions in the first place.

This basically, idm talking to randoms at all. My list is nearly full so I have to clean it pretty often, but most people only say 'hi' when we're at the GE together or something.

Same here, I think 5 people that don't actually play anymore, and then some "big names" just so I can see their A Log without typing their names in, I'm nosey like that.

 

Or type *kicks in crotch* and then run off...

i mainly only talk/hang out with people in my clan, and most of my older friends have quit.

 

most random people i meet simply want to know how to make lots of money fast!!! or they beg for money.

I usually tell them my list is full, but I have added random people in the past and removed them a week later because they got boring. In a rare case when they into a full-fledged and great friend, they're usually the best-quality ones on my list. I also cleanse my list every four or so months and end up getting rid of 1/10th-1/8th of my list as a result.

I tell them my list is full...which is pretty much the truth. I usually hover around 195 or so, and I like to keep a few free spaces to be able to talk to people through pm when I need to.

I tell them that I only add people who I've known for a long time. If they can't accept that, good riddance.

I say sure, add them have a quick conversation and delete them. If they chat to me again i'll re-add them for a bit and then delete them again...and the cycle continues :P I do keep a lot of people permently on my friends list though. I can't keep everyone on there.

Me to. I just came back after a very long break and have literally no friends. It sucks seeing no one ever logging in or out on my friends list, and no one to ever talk to.

I tell people my friends list is full, which depending on the day is either the truth, or very close to it (my list doesn't drop below about 185/200). Every once in a while I go through the list and remove all the names I don't recognize, to make more space.

I keep my private on so get a lot of people adding me due to my youtube videos, or ingame when they see me, cannot possible add that many people so I just tell them I keep my private on, and that keeps them happy enough normally.

Get a lot of people adding me just to beg/ask to be friends in order to beg though as well.


Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

My list is usually full so I just say that though recently I found about 30 people to remove from my list and I still say its full lol. I just don't want to delete good friends even if they haven't been on in over a year.
