I requested to be friends with somebody I have known for 11 years. I have picked her daughter up from school for her. They have recently moved awway. She has blocked me

And?

StandardNameHere Sat 27-May-17 19:35:42

Okay

qwertyuiopasdfghjkl Sat 27-May-17 19:36:44

A bit upset she was happy to ask for favours but doesn't want to keep in touch

I don't understand what thyou AIBU is, do you have her phone number, Facebook is Facebook, I don't understand why adults get upset over anything on FB tbh.

MrsHathaway Sat 27-May-17 19:44:39

Does she have 10 friends or 1000? How active is she?

Maybe you're friends with someone she needs to avoid, and she doesn't want any chance they'd see what she's up to (eg if you tagged her in something).

People use FB in different ways: maybe your way and hers are just very different.

Two weeks ago this would've really bothered me... but i have come off FB 13 days ago and I love life without it!!! wine

Empireoftheclouds Sat 27-May-17 19:54:32

What's the AIBU?

metalmum15 Sat 27-May-17 20:11:40

Bodypump it's liberating isn't it? I gave it up a while ago and realised it's just a load of crap really. I probably read one interesting status out of 40.

Bodypumpaddict Sat 27-May-17 20:21:34

Metal love it! grin

IonaNE Sat 27-May-17 20:35:22

Why do you equal no Fb with not wanting to keep in touch?

wibblypig1 Sat 27-May-17 20:40:18

I've given up Facebook this very evening - I'm sick to the back teeth of the boastful bollocks people post, all this "look at me with my perfect children, on a perfect day out, with my perfect partner and my perfect bank balance". It's all bullshit.

If she's blocked you, block her telephone number on your phone for the next time she asks you for a favour. She can shove it.

qwertyuiopasdfghjkl Sat 27-May-17 21:22:40

I suppose I see facebook as a way of staying in touch. I don't have loads of friends and she is friends with some other mums from school

somerandomfucker Sat 27-May-17 21:30:10

I'd be a bit aggy too about it, have you got the balls to ask her why? If not, move immediately f these negative thoughts, life's well too short X

qwertyuiopasdfghjkl Sat 27-May-17 21:32:15

Don't want to ask why will just avoid from now on

AStickInTime Sat 27-May-17 21:32:38

How do you know she's blocked you?

qwertyuiopasdfghjkl Sat 27-May-17 21:39:31

Checked my friends requested list she wasn't there. Clicked on her profile and the request button has disappeared and this means she declined my request and doesn't want me to request again

Louiselouie0890 Sat 27-May-17 21:59:06

Has she moved far away that you won't actually see each other again. If so and she's like me I can't be doing with my FB full of "friends" who aren't actually friends

AStickInTime Sat 27-May-17 22:18:11

Strange - I thought you couldn't tell

Witchend Sat 27-May-17 22:21:02

She may have clicked decline by accident.

FathomsDeepAndFallingFurther Sat 27-May-17 22:26:57

Well she hasn't blocked you. If she had, you wouldn't be able to see her profile at all. She simply doesn't want to be FB friends with you and that's fine. I have v few people as my FB friends. It's restricted to family as close IRL friends only. I decline friend requests from acquaintances.

metalmum15 Sat 27-May-17 22:32:22

Maybe if she's moved away she just sees it as a new start and doesn't see the point of keeping in touch with people she might never see again. I've had friends on Facebook who've moved and afterwards have deleted friends from where they lived before. It's no big deal. People add and delete friends all the time. Facebook is fine, but real life friends are more important.

MrsHathaway Sat 27-May-17 22:58:20

She might also have the other school mums hidden and/or on limited profile (is that what it's called?).
