>>So yes, if you are the followER, you're "friending" someone. And so if you're the followEE, you've been "friended". But "friended" is certainly past tense, so how would you say that someone is looking to be friended?


Isn't 'friended' in this context passive voice rather than past tense? and isn't that how most passive voice constructions work? as in, He friended me, and I was friended by him...He offended me and I was offended by him...
