would you send a friend request to your son's girlfriend on facebook if you have not met her yet?

    me and a friend were talking about this today, she was thinking about sending a friend request to her son's girlfriend ( both of them are in their mid twenties and are currently in med school), even though her son has yet to bring this girl home

    she wasn't sure if there is such a thing as face book etiquette on things like this and i told her
    i am the wrong person to ask as one, mine boys are too young to even think about girlfriends and two i am not a huge facebook user myself

    i thought it was an interesting point though

    I waited until I met my son's girlfriend (they are early 20s in university) and she added me directly after we met so that was nice and easy.

    That's an interesting question.

    On one hand: She sends the request,first She(his girlfriend) will have to either accept it or decline it. If she accepts it,then what? Does she just want to friend her or does she want to start a conversation with her? I guess the first option would be based on intention.

    On the other hand: She doesn't send the request and just waits till her son brings the woman over to meet the family. I personally would pick option two.

    I'd prefer waiting until meeting the girlfriend.

    No I would not. I would think it creepy and stalkerish if one did before ever meeting in person and getting to know them first.

    I think it could be seen both by her son and his girlfriend as being a nosy and pushy mother-in-law type. She needs to wait to be invited by the girl, not push the girl into a corner.

    I don't think I would add her even after I met her. If she sent me a friend request then I would certainly add her, but I would not initiate it. Let her do that.
