Can you un-request a friend on facebook?

Asked by sophied (101 points ) November 25th, 2009

I’d like to undo a friend request I made. Long story . . . He hasn’t replied yet, so the status is still “awaiting confirmation.” Is it possible to just undo it?

Yes. I know I’ve done it. I can’t remember how though. Google “How to remove someone from your friend list on Facebook” and you’re sure to get it. The Internet ROCKS!!!

@sarah826 I’m not trying to remove him from my friend list, I’m trying to remove the friend request.

Yes you can, I just tried it on a random stranger.

You’ll find him/her in your friends list (click on All Connections and scroll through until you find said person. For some reason their listed alphabetically by forename).

So basically you’re not “undoing” it but removing them from your friends list before they’ve actually accepted it.

Just to clarify – if that actually clarified it at all?

I found another way, too. I blocked him, and then unblocked him, and the friend request disappeared.

Well as long as it works, I guess!

yes you can. at the very bottom of the page your friends with you can remove from friends. or go to your friends list and there is a small x right next to their name just click on that and that will remove them from your friends list. i have cleaned up my friends list 2xs in the past month. so i hope this helps you out and good luck.
