Many like the fact that they can meet new people - even if it's in the virtual Facebook world. Facebook prefers that you link up with people you know, so if someone you don't know becomes a nuisance report them.
Facebook began life as a resource for college students to keep in touch, using it as a diary and a tool to help co-ordinate their learning program. Set yourself as "single" - don't keep changing your relationship. Include the location (not too specific for safety's sake) that you live or work in. Conversely, if you are too pushy or too rude you could get banned yourself. Always be respectful to virtual friends on Facebook. If you agree to meet someone make sure you take a friend on the first meeting.
Be careful when you post anything on their wall as others may see it. You would expect to see a few family members and local friends.
Once you have established a friendly relationship you can invite each other to be friends. Check out their profile to see who their friends are.
