It's nothing personal, but I don't accept requests from people with private profiles. There is a reason. Here is why:
once I accepted a request from a girl with a private profile. Only after I accepted the request and could read her bio I realized I didn't like this person at all. This is why I don't accept requests from people with private profiles.
Now, I have received many requests from people with private profiles, and I just can't accept them. Sure, you might be nice and sweet, but how would I know??? You could easily be stuck up and insolent like the girl I accepted. I'm not saying you are, and you probably aren't, but if you have a private profile, I won't accept you. I felt I had to post this because I receive many requests from people with private profiles.
