As of today, I will no longer be accepting friend requests from people on Facebook. It seems that every time someone sends me a friend request, they either never talk to me, or they won’t leave me alone because the only reason they sent the request was because they want to have sex with me. Facebook is not Grindr. If you want to have sex with people, get a cell phone and install Grindr. Here is a link to Grindr. Use that, don’t use Facebook to look for sex.
Last night someone sent me a friend request and I gladly accepted because it said we had 1 friend in common, but then he sent me a DM asking for sex. When I told him I was in a relationship, he asked me to help him find someone who is single. No! I’m not going to help you hook up with my friends. That is not what Facebook is for!
Awhile ago, someone sent me a friend request and I gladly accepted because it also said we had 1 friend in common. He sent me a DM and we chatted, and then suddenly he told me he was in love with me and that he wanted to be my boyfriend. You can’t possibly be in love with me after 10 minutes. I knew I should have ended the friendship right then and there, but he seemed suicidal and I didn’t want to be the reason that someone ended their life. I think I have finally made it crystal clear that I am not the person for him, but I shouldn’t have to go through that. I should be able to live my life guilt free without worrying that someone is going to kill themselves.
Speaking of which, I am always saying that if you need a person to talk to because you are suicidal, send me a DM and I will be a shoulder you can cry on. So these people who send me a friend request then DM for sex are ruining it for those who legitimately want to talk to me because they need someone to talk to. That’s a real shame that those people have made me not want to accept friendship requests. Although, if someone did legitimately need someone to talk to, they can send me a DM first and then I will accept their friend request.
My reasons for being on Facebook is to talk with my friends and family. To see their pictures and read their funny and or corny jokes and see pictures of their barbecue with their families and friends. To me, Facebook is a website for friends, and that’s it.
I am not a prude, I like sex, but as I said before, I am in a relationship that has lasted for 19 years and I would like to get to 20 years. I am not your boyfriend and I am not your friend with benefits. I am just Mike and that’s it. I save my friendship for people who actually want it.
So from now on, unless you have sent me a message saying who you are and what your intentions are, I will deny all friend requests. I wish I didn’t have to get to this point that I have to write a blog post explaining why I will be denying friendship requests.
