I just made Facebook recently for uni as I have heard that it is useful to have in order to find out upcoming events and meet people. Some guy in his 40s who is married and has no mutual friends sent me a friend request.

Do things like this often happen? Or am I just unlucky?

Women get it more than guys, If you don't know someone and have no interest in knowing them, ignore it.

How do these people even find me on Facebook if we don't go to same uni or live in same city let alone have mutual friends? Some other guy who lives in Pakistan sent me a friend request, it makes no sense.

Yeah, I'm a man and this happens to me, just keep blocking them until it stops. Also you can make it so only friends of friends can send you friend requests

My profile picture is just me in a normal jumper holding my pet rabbit I wouldn't say that I am particularly good looking.

I don't use Facebook that much now but I sometimes used to get friend requests from random people I'd never met before. Best to just ignore & delete their request.
