Okay....I stopped at page 5....why? because I have things to do....real life to live. I do have to say though..... O....M....G!!!!!!!! Really?......REALLY!? If I knew you better, I'd probably say you're insecure, jealous, immature.....and a control freak.....but then I don't know you, so I would probably be wrong to make such assumptions. I do have to say though....I laughed harder, reading this thread, than I have laughed in a very, very long time...and for that, I thank you...AND all of you who responded to the OP. BTW....I do NOT have FB....and apparently, thank God for that! I can not imagine adding so much drama to my life....jeez, who KNEW????? rotflol!! Oh yeah, maybe I missed your answer somewhere here....after all, I quit at page 5......HOW OLD ARE YOU!!??

Are you sure you're really an adult? Grow up. Your cousin is an adult and who she associates with is none of your freaking business.

Word of advice--mental health therapy.

Facebook or not, whether they met through you or not they can befriend anyone they want and they don't need your permission to do so.

If I was your male friend, and you started telling me who I am going to be "facebook friends" with, you and I probably won't be hanging out much.

Get a freaking grip.

I quit my day job to be a full time farmer on Facebook. Now I ride my virtual horse all day and look after my cows, LIFE IS GOOD!

Once we are out of elementary school we realize that people we know sometimes become friends and it isn't our business.
If she asked and he accepted then it's between them. If he felt he didn't know her (or want to know her), he would have declined.

Don't forget that some people just add everyone they can to have a large amount of "friends".

this is fantastic. I JUST GOT DONE sending the following email to a coworker, after searching for "facebook friend stealer" on the internet to see if i was crazy or alone. And you are def on the same page as I am. As for myself, i let people train me how to treat them. Once i know a person is a friend-stealer, i have learned my lesson. Do not call them out. Put them in a file mentally, and keep anyone you dont want stolen from around them. Anyway, enjoy:

How do you feel about facebook friend stealing? I am too possessive. But I always notice when my friends add my brother and flirt with him, etc. or when say a cute guy I knew from school in BOSTON is now friends with a chick on my friends list from Chattanooga.. that couldn’t possibly have known each other outside of having me as a mutual friend? Like my bff from college.. I just noticed that she “liked” my brother’s army photos. She never even told me she liked him or thought he was cute or added him or whatever. I know, I know. I gotta stop it. I’m such an only child.

I'm sorry to be dense, but how are you an only child if you have a brother?

stepbrother. i grew up as an only child. sorry for the miscommunication. anyway. i fully do NOT intend on being attacked in such a way as you all have attacked this poor girl.. i dont actually need advice.. i just happened to find someone who agreed with my own, personal, HIDDEN feelings about facebook friend stealers.. and, more accurately - female friends who want to hook up with any man not nailed down. That is the TRUE root of the problem. I have had that girlfriend many a time in my life. I keep her away from ALL MALES I KNOW including family members. It's actually embarrassing the way those women act, yet at the same time insulting that they assume their personal arsenal of men includes those in your life. SO... MY POINT IS i feel you, bangbang. I do. But do you see why i keep that jealousy to myself? i have identified it as personal jealousy, and i KNOW it's irrational. But.. yes. it pops up in my own life. And i'm sorry you were attacked so repeatedly by people insensitive to your situation.

Much love.
