    At a party, I asked two girls to be FB friends. They don't know each other but in both cases, they search their name but they said that it did not show up. I tried to scan their barcode but did not work. Then, they scanned mine.

    1. After scanning, what happened? Did they have an option to add friend immediately or just ignored it? It has been a few hours but no friend request from them so far.

    2. Do you think they did not want to be my FB friend and pretended that the search did not go well?

    This also happened once before. Girl could not find her name. Then, scanned my barcode when my tablet could not scan hers. No friend request from her...

    Profiles set to private possibly?

    I would say the following

    1, don't ask questions like this on a forum.

    2, they weren't interested.

    Agreed.

    Reading this thread, I find myself asking what the OP's age is………and whether his nom-de-plume is reflective of his actual age.

    Moreover, I also wonder why the OP approaches women he doesn't know and asks them to befriend him on FB.

    As a woman, three thoughts occur, here. The first is such approaches can be somewhat unsettling, ranging to downright creepy.

    Secondly, while I am not on FB, I am on LinkedIn, and I rarely 'befriend' someone I don't already know personally.

    And thirdly, I agree with @Gav2k; basically, they are not interested.

    A lot of women are socialised into giving what is known as a 'soft no'; they are brought up to be polite, and to not to give offence. Besides, bear in mind that some guys don't take rejection all that well. Therefore, rather than say openly that they are not interested, they will instead politely say that they may contact you in the future.
