Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

Random Requests

I must be some kind of magnet for lonely men. My “other” message folder always has a new message from a man telling me how beautiful and sexy I am. And that he hopes we can be friends first and develop a relationship.

Really??? I’m a beyond middle age woman and these are mostly younger men. My Facebook page is pretty private and I sure don’t do anything to attract this attention.

Then tonight I got an actual friend request from a man I’ve never heard of. I get lots of friend requests from people I don’t know because of my position in the community…but they are local people and they think they know me even though I may not really know them (in which case I accept and then lock my page up from them).

Are there really that many desperate lonely people out there? Is it me? Or is this happening to everyone?

  1. Not sure. Some days it feels like most people are lonely and some days it feels like most people are happy.

  2. I get the occasional letter in various places (facebook etc.) from men saying I’m beautiful and sexy and they’re lonely and want to find someone with similar interests to marry… Yeah. I just ignore them.

  3. You must have that “special” something, Pam! 🙂

  4. I would say yes, there are tons of lonely men out there. I was one of them several years ago until I took positive steps to end it. I am sorry the dolts won’t leave you alone, shame on them. I will be your friend and won’t ask for a date… Good Lord.

  5. What amazes me are the number of men who want to friend me on facebook claiming to think I am beautiful and they read my profile (which clearly states that I am happily married) expressing a desire to get together when they are, “In the country.” I am wondering if their foreign wives and girlfriends know they are posting these messages. they are always under “Other” on my FB friends.

  6. I am not in Facebook. But once – when I did the Internet dating thing – it was like that. And I did not even have my picture posted! I would rather give up chocolate for life before I go back on the Internet for a guy.

  7. Much of this sounds like Spam, like the kind of stuff I get in my Spam folder from Gmail. And I’m not saying this just because nobody tries to hit me up through Facebook 😉 It’s even happening on WordPress where I see fake profiles (bots?) following me. The few times I’ve gotten Friend requests from people I don’t know, I just block them. According to Facebook, they don’t know they’ve been blocked. If they are real people, they may be desperate but I doubt that they are lonely.
