The best test is to see how fast they reply to your messages. If they reply instantly with very little typing time it means that they are just copying and pasting from a script. I don't know if you can see when someone is typing a message on FB, but on Skype it's so obvious when someone types a three sentence response in under a second.

This is not a cultural issue, this is a personal values issue.

The question should really be asked to 'everybody' because men and women of all cultures do the same thing.

Is it common for [a] foreigner to add [a] stranger's fb? Is it a different culture [cultural thing]?
Could any foreigner tell me? I have so many "?" now!
If I type[d] something wrong or [used incorrect] grammar wrong, please tell me too.
I appreciate you reading my message.


You're welcome. :)


Wow really? Grammar police much?

Never add someone you do not know or have not met in person. I run FB and LINE groups for tennis and cycling in these forums and sometimes I get people trying to add me on FB well before I've even met them. Usually if they are inquiring about certain things, I'll chat with them on FB, but not until I've met them would I have add them.

Do yourself a favor, forget this guy and unfriend him. Check your privacy settings on FB to prevent things like this from happening in the future.

The OP ASKED to have any incorrect grammar pointed out to her. :neutral:

Thanks for everyone's advice.
I clicked agree because I saw that we have the same friends.(2 females.)
I already unfriended him, and told my friends to block him as well.
I am learning English so need some grammar correction and my English ability would be better...
Thanks everyone again!!:D :D :D :D :D

Honey, just one more thing, from Auntie Peng. This bit is really worrisome:

I don't know how to deal with this problem.I don't know how to decline....


You have the right to say NO, loud and clear. You do not want something, you do not feel comfortable, say no. I know that many times choices are imposed on us and then it makes it harder to say no. We want to be "good girls" and are afraid of making people angry by saying no. But dear, the world is a harsh place and you have to defend yourself. No one will come to your rescue. People are there for the entertainment and will turn against you. You cannot show weakness, too many sharks in the water. No means no. Learn the word. Live it. Love it. It is empowering. Do not fear your own power.

Why do I say this? Please check local news regarding a Taiwanese female who befriended someone on FB who said he was from the US and later asked for money. She did not say no. She gave him several hundred thousand NTDs. Turns out he was a liar, a local, not from the US, and the money was gone.
Lo urgente no deja tiempo para lo importante. Mafalda.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

adding to the choir of voices saying that you should unfriend and block this guy. that's super creepy and not normal.
