Desperate people on Orkut

Filed under: My Life,My Thoughts — Suramya @ 10:36 PM

Well this is just one of those things that I find funny. I mean how desperate can a person get to have a female friend? Apparently a lot from what I have heard…

A couple of days ago I was talking to Tarini and she was telling me that she is sick of ‘weird’ people scraping her/mailing her asking to be friends with them. Then she told me that due to a mistake another friends of ours posted a list of phone numbers on Orkut with her phone number in it and she got flooded with calls from weirdos (her words) wanting to be friends… It got so bad that she stopped answering her phone if she didn’t recognize the number.. So I agree that there are a lot of desperate people on Orkut..

But the Desperate person of the year award goes to Prafull from Dehradun. He left a message on Surabhi’s Scrapbook asking to be friends and this is what their conversation went like: (My comments are in ()’s)

prafull: u dont know me but i want to introduce me and also want to know you….i wanna be ur friend
(Ok, Decent enough approach. Should have told more about himself, why he wanted to be friends etc)
Surabhi: why?
(Good Question)
prafull: bcoz i know u can make my good friend
(Stupid answer)
Surabhi: How do you know that?
(Exactly what I was going to ask, and the question he should have answered earlier)
prafull: bcoz my heart says that u r true…..why u don’t want to be friend like me dr whats the problem am i not good………
(This is where I started laughing… Can’t this guy take a hint?)
Surabhi: Why does your heart say that I am true?
prafull: dr plz dont be quessioning be my friend.. if u think u r really true.
Surabhi: I dont know what true means- You said I am true. Why does your heart say I am true?
(I guess Surabhi was having Fun… I would have ignored him a long time ago…)
prafull: hey what happend
prafull: true means u can make a good friend means never be false.. it means u can say trust worthy bcoz dr friendship depends on only trust and understandability. and i think u have both quality even i know you ..
(Now the desperation shows)
prafull: now plz tell me we r friends naaaaaa
(Ok… Here’s a suggestion for you.. When a girl says no she doesn’t want to be friends she usually means it. Posting messages like the one above after being told no, will only make you look like a fool and then people like me will make fun of you)

I am sure there are others worse than this but this is the most recent example I could find… If you have other stories do tell…

    check out vinit’s scrap- i made him ask this guy in return ‘do u want to be my friend plsssss’ lololol

    seems like he is the only one with a computer in his entire city so doesn’t have any friends online

  3. Dude, it got so funny that I had to spend 10 minutes helping surabhi clean up her scrapbook.

    Btw, i told Surabhi not to make the info about you and the Gujju girl public. She never listens.

  5. i would like to comment on the fist one , what makes you think guy is desperate ? and disgrace him for no good reason ? orkut is SOCIAL networking place , rather a community where in people simply share thier thoughts m and express each other to new one’s , bigdeal you ddint like his approach , but its offensive either , he sounds like expressing like a simple man who really is looking for a friend , , do u think u have been any truthful ? u are simply messing around , so learn to say no in a proper manner if u cant atleast be decent /?? EH

  6. Tariq,
    First off, I made fun of him because his was one of the sillier approaches to making a friend that I have seen so far. Secondly it wasn’t me he approached for friendship but my sister. Who gets a ton of these requests everyday… So she was playing around with him.

    NEways I don’t have to justify myself to you… But taking your comment into consideration, I will remove his full name from the post and leave just his first name. That should give him a bit of anonymity.

  7. Looks like you have been agonised by “Orkut Despo dudes”

    Are you sick n tired of “fraandships” requests from despos in Orkut?
    Do you get messages like:
    “Hey babes I am a kool dude wid hot looks”
    “Ur hairs is beutiffull, I am in luv instant.”
    “Life is a garden to be filled wid rozes of love friends”
    “So lets friendship??”

    Who are these despo guys and why do they do this?
    Find the answer –
