“I met a few cute guys at a birthday party a couple weeks ago. Is it weird for a girl to friend on FB? Oh the modern questions…”
Dear Laura in LA,
Facebook Request to your little heart’s desire. It’s a risk-free way of putting your feelers out there. A guy is probably not going to say, “Isn’t it so weird that the cute girl at the party last week Friended me?!” But once he’s added you, you might wait for him to make the first move. If a guy is interested, he’s always clear about it. (Like he won’t keep you Pending in Facebook Purgatory for three weeks before he accepts you.) If this is one of those scenarios where he’s HAPPY you figured out his last name after the blur of last Friday night and hunted him down on the web, he’ll say something. Ya know, like, “Hello,” or “Hey, clutch dance moves last week.” If mum’s the word, then you have your answer. There you go, modern technology made easy.
