About 5-6 months ago, I sent out several requests to people. Unfortunately, I got a block placed on my account for about 30 days from sending anymore friend requests. I get banned sometimes though but that time, the friend requests did not completely cancel. They probably cancelled on their end but not on my end. If I view their profile on anything like on a members list in a group or on an event they are attending, it will say "friend request sent". However, when I move my mouse over their name or actually go to their full profile, it will say "add friend". Unfortunately, I can't seem to add them again because it keeps saying, "already sent a request to connect" and then when I refresh the page it will go back to "add friend".

There isn't always an option to cancel the friend request and when it is available and I click on it, it won't work either. I don't know what to do. I have tried to contact Facebook multiple times and have included detailed screenshots to the problem. I even posted this on places like Yahoo Answers and the community forum on Facebook and never really got too many responses. I tried to remove all of my imported contacts and the friend requests problem still remains.

Can anyone help me with this?

This seems to be a really complex problem that might even need programming or something done in that order. I really don't know what to do or where to look for help anymore. I really want this issue resolved.


No amount of programming is going to change the way Facebook works. You're right, you are blocked from "refriending" these people.

So why not send them a message asking them to friend you, if you really do know them?
