true friends !!!!!

I read a hilarious post on Preeti's blog,sometime back on Orkut and all the X men that inhabit the land of the big O.I have to admit that since then, I too have kept an eye,if not a tag on who leaves his/her footprints on my profile.L.O.L.
BTW Preeti is a launching her book,in Bangalore in Oct.It's a big moment for her.I wish her all the best.
Coming back to Orkut.Sadly most friend requests are not from long lost friends,colleagues,classmates and cousins.In the beginning,I was scared about all the weird requests that poured in,but a lil research and conference proved that everybody received their share of these messengers!!!!Some worthy ones are listed below.(names not included for the sake of privacy)

1.Hi gazal,wanna friend ????!!!!!
(wanna friend...is this the new age language....or i am growing old??)

2.hiI've interest in making new fans bcaz I believe f'ndship is the topper relationship in world & u
(and i have to decode that message......)

3.hi......how r u ??i m ###***** u r name is gazal..its very attrective ..ilike it r u join me.......
(make up your mind man....pause a while....no grammar please,we are indian)

4.Aap Bhi Aayiye, Humko Bhi Bulate Rahiye..Dosti Buri Cheez Nahi, Dost Banaate Rahiye..!!
(no comments)

5.cool attitud eyou got there....
(attitude redefined.....how did he ever know)

6.Hi ...cute name....is that really your picture??
(should i take that as a compliment or an insult??)

BTW...am also curious to know if men too receive such creative and meaningful requests(from women of course)
any comments!!!!!

and why have I put it here....well as Preeti says..."I am a woman".

Hi Gazal,
I have to admit that my first impression about Orkut too was that it was a place to make new friends. Now how that is used by youngsters is anybody's guess!
Waise I agree, dosti buri cheez nahi, dost banaate rahiye...
Cheers,
Salil

heheh...I have herd that some men try putting pictures of Tom cruise , etc to get more requests....wonder if that is true??

But the best of your request has to be
**hi......how r u ??i m ###***** u r name is gazal..its very attrective ..ilike it r u join me.......**

Number 6 was hilarious. In the good old days, I used to have an Orkut account, but deleted it because of these weird un-grammatical requests. Well I should mention in a tag that I like men with a good sense of Grammar, hehehe.
Loved reading it. It made me laugh so hard after a hard day spent on-you-know-what.

Hilarious. Initially when someone sent friendship invitation, I was stupid enought to accept it thinking it would be rude to reject. Few days later, I took him out of my friend's profile....
