Ah Facebook! What can I say about it that hasn't already been said? It's wonderful, marvelous, everyone loves it, everyone uses it to catch up, keep in touch, find people they haven't been able to get in touch with, stalk people, make announcements so that the effort of doing so individually is avoided, play games, share information, photographs and videos, post events, requests, announce relationship statuses, and perhaps do everything that has been holding back the rest of the world from reaching out to everyone else in the past! In this article, we will deal with the process of how to accept a relationship request on Facebook.

Now, a relationship request may be sent to you by the person you are in a relationship with. This may be your boyfriend, fiancé, or husband. Obviously, this information has to be validated by you else everyone may want to list you as their boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife! So the idea is to accept the request as soon as it comes so that you don't lose it over time. To do so, knowing when your partner has sent it to you will be of great help.

Steps Involved

Every day, someone or the other has a dilemma about an aspect of Facebook, only because the page layout keeps changing so often. Lots of people go into angry fits and simply can't seem to figure how Facebook works in this area! Similarly, it is understandable that you can't find your pending relationship request because it is not obviously located on the home page. The answer of course is very simple, and does not involve any sort of extra procedures. Here are the steps to going about the process.

Step 1: Sign in to Facebook using your email ID and password.

Step 2: As soon as you are directed to the home page, look up at the Facebook logo on the top left corner of the page.

Step 3: You will notice three icons, one with two people (indicating any friendship requests), one with a conversation bubble (indicating messages), and one with a globe (indicating notifications). Click on the first icon indicating friendship requests.

Step 4: A drop down menu will appear, indicating not only all friendship requests, but relationship requests too. All you have to do is click on 'confirm' if you wish to accept the request. Upon doing this, you will find yourself listed as in a relationship with/engaged to/married to the person who sent you the request.

Step 5: Sometimes, you may not be able to locate the relationship request you have been sent. In such a case, when the drop down menu appears after clicking on the friend's request icon, you have an option known as 'see all'. Click on it and you will find all the pending requests that are awaiting your approval. Confirm the request upon locating it.

Easy, isn't it? The more time you spend on Facebook, the more you will be able to learn about it and it's function. There is a lot you can do on this website, as long as you don't misuse it. Hopefully, this information has been useful to you.
