I accept all Facebook friend requests from people (not businesses). That’s brought me 2,500 friends many of them viewers most of whom I don’t know. It’s actually a nice connection never available to me before. Thank you for being a friend.
That being said I enjoy stalking strangers lives online. Some of you are more interesting than others.
I’ve read along as you screamed your most personal secrets for all to see.
I know when you’ve been sleeping. I know when you’re awake. I know when you’ve been bad and good.
Do I ever!
I recently read an angry rant by a friend about his soon-to-be ex-spouse. Ouch!
There is a subset of my friends I haven’t yet figured out except I know they’re not real people. They are usually very attractive younger women posed provocatively. I’m not talking get you kicked off Facebook steamy provocative, but these women are nubile¹.
I suspect the idea is no guy is going to turn down a Facebook invite from this girl. We remember when we were this girl’s age. We would not have been on her radar.
Considering their obvious comfort before a camera these faux friends have but one photo in their profile. Often they’ve been on Facebook a short amount of time–strange for someone in their early twenties. Their wall never carries real two-way conversations.
Sometimes you’ll see a guy who has lost touch with reality posting on her wall under the mistaken impression some babe is coming on to him and he can hit on her. He never posts twice.
Are they stalking me and others? Could be. I’ll keep looking and would appreciate hearing if you’ve had similar friendings.
¹ – I wouldn’t normally set the definition of nubile here, but if you were searching to see what I mean the first Google return is a porn site… so
