Do you delete a guy from your "friends list" or facebook after you met him and there was no connection?

    You're not under any obligation to be friends with anyone on FB you don't want to share a connection with.

    Ultimately though, it might be better to friend up the person after meeting them in person so as to avoid awkwardness or unintended hurt.

    Well if you meet the guy and you realize you don't like him as a friend, delete him...

    Otherwise leave em....

    Uh...do you really have to ask this question?! Do what works for you, eh? icon_wink.gif

    That said, I don't add just anyone to my friends list as I seem to define the word quite a bit differently than most--particularly in the online realm. I don't like the word 'tradition,' but when it comes to friends I think I take a more traditional approach to making them and keeping them! icon_biggrin.gif

    Why would someone be on your friends list if you have never had conversations that would tell you a friendship is growing or at least is starting? Otherwise, isn't that the cart before the horse scenario?

    I think it's generally smarter to add your real life friends to your friends list.

    It's pretty ridiculous when you see Myspace or Facebook profiles with like 500+ friends. icon_lol.gif

    Kinda harsh to get deleted by someone that you didn't realize was a "disposable" friend.

    I usually wait a while so it's not so obvious, then when I do a general cull of my FB friends list Id get rid of him. But I dont tend to add randoms or people I dont know anyway.

    Depends on the "lack of connection"
    If they were obnoxious or a pain in the ass when I met them?
    Sure I would delete them
    But if there just wasn't a chemistry .... then no I wouldn't
