So lets say John Smith and John Doe are friends since 2010. Is there a way to find out whether John Smith or John Doe sent the friend request for this friendship in the first place?

  • Only the users in question can tell.

  • @Julio: Okay, let's assume one of them wants to know. How would he do it?

    Check the notification email; in 2010 at least one of the users may have enabled email notification for friend requests..

    Honestly? Scroll through 3+ years of items to find one?
