Rejected

So a couple of weeks ago I was thinking about all of the people I used to know and I got curious about one ex-boyfriend in particular. We didn't have a particularly bad falling out, just sort of a our lives are going in two different directions. So, I decided to see if he was on facebook. And he was....

Apparently, he has dropped the last letter of his first name in an effort to look more cool, I'm not sure. But from the picture, it was most definitely still him. So to investigate what he was up to and also to see if I could get the scoop on the missing letter I requested to be his friend. (His profile was private)

A week later, I had heard nothing. So, I did a search for him again thinking that if he was just not a frequent facebook checker perhaps he had just not seen the request. But... low and behold there beside his name was add as a friend again. Meaning that he had rejected me but I could plead my case again.

So, being a slow learner, I sent him another request. And being a Jack@$$ cautious facebook user he rejected me AGAIN!! I'm not sure what to think. There is a part of me that is offended and then there's a part of me that just laughs at the fact that obviously HE hasn't let it go.

So, have you ever been rejected on facebook or am I the only one? Have you found anyone you never thought you'd talk to again??

My ex-boyfriend is on there, but I've decided not to request access to his profile. It almost feels like it would be disloyal to J to request to be added, though I know that J wouldn't actually have a problem with it. But I have to admit that a small part of me thinks he would probably reject my request and I'd just rather avoid that altogether!

I ended up dating an old girlfriend again thanks to the Cla$$mates.com site. She looked me up on there about 6 years after I graduated and wrote me an email. I wrote back and things progressed and we dated for over a year. As for being rejected on facebook.....haven't had that happen yet! I think it's kinda funny that a "grudge" can be held that long. Now...who was it????? j/k

I have rejected someone... and I am sure that I have been rejected too... I have lived some many places that some of the people may not even remember me... so I do't think anything of it!

I don't ever check back to see if they actually rejected me or not... I assume if they don't approve it they did and move on. :) I have some people on mine that I would have never thought would approve me so I guess I'm good with it now.

I have been rejected by an old co-worker that I got along with rather well. I even shot him an email that was like What's up with this?!?!? He just sent me an LOL so I requested again and the bastard rejected me.... it took me back to high school.. were I felt like the ugly fat girl.
