On social media, ‘Do I know you?’ – isn’t an ice-breaker question.
But, a ‘mood-breaker’.
When you get this suspicious question, you may lose interest in knowing this new person right away.
When someone asks you this on Facebook after accepting your request, you’re confused (sometimes, scared) about how to respond to such a question.
This indeed is an awkward situation to deal with.
All you wanted is just to get to know this person, thinking they are also interested to know you.
You know it even worse when they ask so, just after they accept your friend request.
So, before it happens again, you might need better comebacks to deal with it.
How To Respond To ‘Do I Know You?’

And, so, give answers that describe your mood and the situation straight.
