Any significance (facebook)? Watch

    I know I'm a loser and this may be a stupid question, but humour me please
    Soo yesterday afternoon I got a facebook invite from someone. Never ever spoken to them, haven't seen them and vice versa for over a year, were in the same english class for one year, and have only 7 mutual friends. Both now at uni/gone separate ways from school. What I'm asking, is if there's any significance of them adding me when we literally don't know each other at all. And incase you're wondering why I'm asking this pathetic joke of a question... yes, I did silently admire their ****ing GORGEOUSNESS all that time ago.

    I knew I could answer the question with no after just reading the thread title. Significance & Facebook :noway:

    It could mean something. Maybe this person secretly admired your gorgeousness from afar as well. Maybe not, and s/he is just sending out random invites, as people do on Facebook so often. Just accept, and see where it goes?

    I think it's just facebook is viewed as a numbers game, people trying to add anyone they're vaguely connected to in the hope of seeming more popular to the outside world.

    Hope this helps

    edit: oh sorry, read the bit about the gorgeousness. erm, they must have been pretty gorgeous for 7 years of admiration! well, fingers crossed, who knows? just post on their wall and see what happens? you've got nothing to lose. unfortunately i can't dissect from what you've told me about their feelings towards you.

    But they hardly have any friends (~200) and have only added me in the past week... I THINK IT'S WEIRD.

    Yeah you are probably all right, no significance. I think I was just clutching at straws :sad:

    Depends, did you ever speak to this person in person? If not, don't flatter yourself, no significance.
