Would you like to send this friend request?

Do I know this person?

Kind of

I barely recognize him

I've seen her around once

I think

We have one hundred mutual friends

How have we never met?

I don't know

You'll probably ignore this

Is it really worth the chance?

Maybe I should message you first

Who am I?

How do I sound not creepy?

Does it matter who I am?

Say "Yes", and you'll learn who I am

Say "No", and life moves on

A friend request through the screen

We'll never talk, but we'll get to know each other

Empty words written on walls

Birthdays not really remembered

Invites to places we'll never go

Reading statuses we'll never understand

Now, I'm married to you

But this is only online

Let's see where this goes
