Dear Aunty Em
‘How many dates is acceptable before you friend request … or do you even?’
– Friendly Fire
Dear Friendly Fire,
Before I can answer your question, I need to define the use of the word ‘date’. By date, do you mean a civilised coffee enjoyed in public? Or do you mean five bottles of wine followed by a backseat blowjob?
The reason I ask is this: how intimate have you become with this person? And do you really consider them your friend or are you just trying to gain access to the pics of them and their ex-girlfriend?
I think it’s fine to friend request someone after five seconds if there is a genuine sense of connection, camaraderie and simpatico but if you are mostly trying to facestalk them and you haven’t gotten to the tongue wrangling stage, it’s probably a little bit too soon to go making it first base facebook official.
Thoughts, dear readers?
