This doesn’t mean you have to accept every single person. Use your own personal filter. If you want guys, get all guys. If you want all girls, get all girls. If you have a friend request from someone you don’t feel comfortable adding, don’t add them. Remember this is what’s great about being online, these people can’t see you.
