Random Friend Requests?

 Hello1Hello2

This is how I feel when someone I haven't met in game or know of (as in ever seen on the forums or have talked to) sends me a friend request. I am talking about these random friend requests (I know they play Uncharted 3 as I view their trophy information) that you have never seen post on the forums or ever seen in your life. I often wonder why they do this and when I ask I get no reply until some days later until they say they are from Chile. I actually had one say they typed my name in randomnly and just sent a friend request.

 

Does this happen to anyone else or just me? I get friend requests from people in game, at least I know I played with them. These people however are like ghosts, they come out of nowhere to haunt friend request you? I can't be the only one who gets them.

I get them all the time! Usually after a match. I don't mind much though, it means I just did good and they want to play with a good player.

 

Problem is, a lot of those friend requests are from people that play horrible or are new to the game. I dislike people who hold me (and the rest of the team who are really trying) back causing us to (almost) lose. So if by any chance I do add anyone, I usually tell them to get better 1st or we play some co op instead. 

 

EDIT: Fixed typo

Well, besides going online and asking for friends (Which actually is still the same the way you see it)

 

How else are you going to add other players? Ignoring IRL friends and friends of friends of course.

Yes but than everytime I meet someone knew who isn't a friend of a friend I must go undo what you just said. Which makes it a greater hassle and inconveincence for me.
