Alisa's cousin who lives in Beijing who I've never spoken to asked me to be her friend on facebook.

Fair enough.

But... am I supposed to say "hello, nice to meet you" or something..? Or do I wait to see if she messages me?  chinscratch I'm in a politeness pickle.

Although, Alisa did show me these photos ages ago, and they're on her profile so I thought I'd share them with you. It's fucking mental.











They're real fucking pandas....  blink

If someone I've not spoken to for ages adds me, if I know who they are I'll add them back, but I won't say anything to them unless I have something to say or they say something to me.
But maybe you could just leave a photo comment, thereby not having to engage in awkward one-to-one convo?

 chinscratch That's a good idea.

I dunno whether I'm supposed to wait for her to message me, or if it's rude for me to just ignore her, or wait for someone to introduce us or what.

Bollocks to it, I'll just leave a wall post about her photos.

Also, this picture on her profile is pretty amazing too

Are oxymoron's only when a word is in the middle of another word? Like unbe-fucking-lievable? Otherwise, I have no excuse for my disgraceful use of the English language.  Sad I'm sorry.

I'll go sacrifice Ray to the Gods of Lovely to make up for it.

Do I mean oxymoron? Or is that something else?

And don't look so glum, Ray. Soon you will be at peace.

I think that's just called a lie, when it's you lying...  But when a word's in another word like that it's called tmesis. Other than that I ditto Ray's face...

Interesting that you'd be asking this actually, your dad recommended that I add your brother (Littler Lars, not Littlest Lars) through Facebook last week or somewhen, so I did; and he accepted, but I wasn't sure what the etiquette was, given that I've only met him once, so I sent a message just saying 'hello, remember me? We met at your brother's wedding. How are you?' etc. and have received no reply.

Damned Facebook politics!

Yes! That's exactly what I mean!

When is it socially acceptable to message someone..??

And Ev is probably being a dick. I'm surprised he actually signed up to facebook. He was protesting it for a while.

Or if it's someone you think it is and then it turns out to not be...?  whistling

I keep getting tits from my old school trying to add me. I used to add them but fucking hell, there are some cunts out there who think I actually want anything to do with them.

It is weird... usually, if it's someone I used to know quite well then I'll leave them a wall post or something asking how they are, but if I didn't much like them to begin with then I'll just leave it and maybe comment on their status sometime if I can think of something relevant.
However, with someone you barely know it's all a bit uncharted territory... I suppose with Alisa's cousin you can feel confident about messaging, since you're actually technically family now, but what of strangers you meet at parties (or indeed weddings)? And if you send a message and get no reply, does that mean that you've been too forward, or have they just not read it? Or did they perhaps read it at an inconvenient moment and didn't have time to reply. The thing is, the fact that they have either accepted the friend request, or even initiated it to begin with, you know that you're not a complete lunatic who they want to avoid, but then why no reply?

You can tell I've given this a lot of thought - actually it seems to be the story of my life to be trying to be friendly to strangers over Facebook and to get nothing in return Sad Mebbes I'm too forward.
