I am having a Facebook quandary: to accept or not accept the friendship request of someone I know but don't much care for and am no longer in contact with. Facebook can easily facilitate connections between people -- good AND bad.

1. a situation from which extrication is difficult especially an unpleasant or trying one; "finds himself in a most awkward predicament"; "the woeful plight of homeless people" [syn: predicament]
2. state of uncertainty or perplexity especially as requiring a choice between equally unfavorable options [syn: dilemma]
1579, "state of perplexity," of unknown origin, perhaps a quasi-Latinism based on L. quando "when."
