Do you look at a person's profile before sending a friend request?

I don't really send friend requests anymore but when I did, I always checked out a person's profile before sending one. I'm curious about this because lately I've been getting friend requests. On my profile I put "Not currently accepting friend requests at the moment. Sorry!", and this makes me think that people don't even bother to look at my profile because I still get friend requests. I also think it's weird to accept a friend request without even knowing anything about that person, which is why I look at their profile before sending or accepting.

Edit: I'm not accepting any friend requests because I don't really talk to a lot of those "friends" that I already have. So I just don't want anymore.

I look every single time. I wanted more connections than just "liking anime." When I read a few profiles, I saw things in common outside of the world of anime and so I added them. I remember some of them, I really liked their favorite anime so I knew I could talk to them about that.

I've sent a request to probably half the people on my list.


I should say, because I posted on the friendship thread - I have been accepting people that add me. I still look at their profile and try to initiate small talk. But yeah, it is rough when people show no interest and just want to collect numbers. I'll probably clean my list up in future.

Yes I do. I'll probably do some cleaning time to time though.

Definitely. A profile will tell me some stuff about the user. Though, I do not send many requests. Most people have added me, for reasons I do not understand. (Why would someone add me?) I can't say I'm not open to meeting all kinds of people. I'm only reluctant to add people who are barely ever online and those that seem too serious. They might bite me. o_o

TBH, I hardly ever send friend requests. But I imagine that if someone posts a lot in forums or makes a lot of comments, others might feel they know them well enough on that basis to send a request without looking at the profile. However, even though I don't often send friend requests, I do tend to look at the profiles of people that catch my interest when I see them in the forums.

I do think there are also many people who just make requests to everyone they see in passing, or anyone who replies to any of their posts, and in those cases I bet looking at profiles is not something they do.

Yes, I look when I receive them too. I also DM them and ask why when they add me, unless I had been chatting with them on the threads/recognize them for another reason

Whether you're sending or accepting a friend request without knowing anything about that person... Yeah, weird. Most of the friend requests I've received are from people who I've never interacted with on the site, or even seen posting in some cases. So I just ignore or delete them. I think some people just periodically go through the list of user accounts and send a request to all of them.

Even if someone I did recognize from the forums wanted to add me I'd still probably ignore it unless I actually talk to them frequently.. Which is... nobody really. Damn, aren't I just Mr. Popular?

Same as above.

Sometimes it's cool to see that they like and/or are watching something that you like so you can chat with them about it in PM's so that you don't have to use the spoiler function, haha.

I dont send out requests, the whole idea of having friends just to post on a wall is stupid, they should just make it so you can post on a wall if its made public, or friend only or not at all. I gave up trying to have a conversation with people through their profiles, i'd rather just use an outside source like KlK or in the case of people that i get to know just text.
