What's this "Friend" business about?

Hi there,

Being an old timer here, I know all about buddies, but now some of my buddies are also "friends". I even got a "friend request" via email. Can someone please explain? Does this mean I have to loan them money or let them date my daughter?

Also, be advised that friendship does not lead to kissin', and certainly won't go beyond that.

Anyone clamouring to be your friend view with suspicion! As the old saying goes You cannot choose your relatives but you can CHOOSE your friends!!

Purely a goodwill gesture on the part of the person sending it, at the end of the day it all amounts to nothing when posting in ACG. Some people I hardly correspond with here have sent me requests, I don't have any problem in accepting them.

Certainly not beyond that?

So in theory it could lead to kissing?



Just saying...

Which is exactly what you are offered, a chance to choose a friend.

I suppose we could paraphrase that old joke about clubs and so forth: anyone who wants you as a friend would not be someone you would hang around with anyway.

"I would not want to join a club that would have me as a member." was the original quote, IIRC.
