When it comes to Facebook®, I’ve found that there are two types of male friend requests:
The First – the innocuous Facebook® Friendship:
Him: “Hey Phoren, haven’t seen you in ages. How are you doin’ these days.”
Me: “Dave, great to hear from you. I’m fantastic – went to culinary school recently, still living in XX and working at XX. How about you? What’s up in your world?”
Him: No reply or a pat one-line response about living, working, marriage and children.
This is the end of our conversation. We are now “Facebook® Friends.”
The Second – the “I want to get in your panties again” Facebook® Friendship:
The conversation begins the same, but instead of fizzling out after one or two exchanges, he keeps the momentum going. In fact, if I don’t respond, he’ll email again. He doesn’t post on my wall; he sends private messages. He’ll remind me of the fun we had in the past, finding out the details of my life, discovering if I’m single or in a relationship until the point when he can “casually” ask me out.
I’ve had a few of these. I’m experiencing one of these right now.
