When someone sends you a friendship request, you must approve it to let The City know that you're officially pals.

A friendship request that has not been approved can either be in a Requested or Pending status. Requested means that someone has sent you a friendship request and is waiting for you to approve it. Pending means that you have sent someone else a friendship request and you are waiting for their acceptance. When you view a person's profile, their profile image will display either a blue Requested banner or an orange Pending banner.

If you want to accept a friendship request, you can do this in different ways. 


 To accept a friendship request from Reminders
  1. Under Reminders in the right menu, click Friend. This will display a list of people who have sent you a friendship request.
  2. Click Confirm under the name of the person you want to accept as your friend.
