Facebook: How to cancel friend request

A long time ago I requested to be friends with someone... well, that I now don't want to be friends with. I totally forgot about it until I saw their profile appear on the suggested friends list.

Annoyingly, Facebook doesn't really have a place to let you cancel it anymore.

Luckily, after some poking around and experimenting I found a way to do it.

  • Open up your Privacy settings page under Accounts.
  • Scroll to the bottom and find the "Block lists" option
  • In there, enter in either the name or email of the person you want to cancel.
  • Block them.
  • Now remove them from the block list.
  • View their profile.
  • It should now give you the option of "Add as friends".
