For the most part, Facebook tries to be helpful by recommending people I may know, if we are connected vaguely by a friend or two. Sometimes the recommendations are a little less than helpful. Alastair Dunsmore-Rouse appeared in my People You May Know column with absolutely no mutual friends attached to his name, and of course, there was only one thing to do.

I sent him a message, saying something to the extent of "Dear Alastair Dunsmore-Rouse, you do not know me, but I just wanted to let you know I think you have a wonderfully imaginative name; it makes me think of classic literature and Charles Dickens."

He never wrote me back. I still feel the sting of rejection to this day.

Hahahahaha! This is soooo funny. I can totally feel how you feel. I was trying to message someone too saying if he is this guy (I know he isn't but they have the same name!) and I described how the original guy is. He never wrote me back! I'm sure I didn't write bad words or thoughts. He just ignored it. Hahaha </3
