NWR: You make me uncomfortable

I recently received a friend request on FB from a family member and was shocked because we have no relationship with each other. Growing up as kids we played like cousins but when teen years came we stopped communicating. Alot of hurtfull things has been said, and done over the past 17 yrs for no going back can remedy this, nor going forward. I don't trust her. The weird part is; we work at the same place so when I see her twice a year in the hallway, we might just say "hello" and keep it moving. Now if we don't communicate in person or by phone, why would you want to be my friend on fb? I think the only reason is to be nosey. I just want to erase all my pics, or just put blocks on pics. I know this sounds so petty, but she makes me uncomfortable. I don't know what to do, how would you handle this?

    This is a tough one because you two are family. But if you really feel that you cannot get pass everything that has happened then decline her request. I would not take down my pics and all of that. You can lock your profile so that the only people who see it is the people you allow to see it. Send a brief message with the declined invite that right now at this moment you do not feel comfortable with adding her but thanks for sending the invite or something along those lines. you do not have to go into anymore detail than that. HTH

    i say press IGNORE with the quickness and keep it moving...i personally think (just from your post) that she's heard you're getting married and now she wants to keep tabs on what you are up to just to be nosey...I would not hide pics on my acct cuz she wouldn't have been added as a friend...

    It seems quite simple to me...don't accept her friend request and you are right. She just wants to be nosey. I deny friend request all the time...if you have already accepted her then delete her if she makes you feel that uncomfortable....

    Oh yeah, you can also make it to where she can also see a limited FB page but if I were you I would just not accept it. I mean for crying out loud its not like she is going to approach you about it...hahaha
