How do I take back a Facebook Friend Request ?

Not sure if this is in the right place or not but I accidentally sent someone a FaceBook friend request..... WTF do I do????  BTW, I totally didn't want to send this request, it happened after I saw the person had been checking out my myspace more than a lot and so I just searched them on facebook.

Re: HELP!!!!!!!

are you wanting to cancel the request? not possible. if they accept, simply say thought they were someone else. the only way to not get busted if they know you, is to delete your account before they accept.

you can BLOCK them however. 

To block a person, hover over the Settings link (toward the top-right corner to the left of the search box), and go to Privacy Settings. From there, under Block List you should see a search box. Search the person’s name, and you can find and block them in the search results that follow. To unblock them, click the (remove) link by their name on the Privacy Settings page. The pending friend request confirmation should now be purged.

Sorry to bother you but I need some help I was on my Mom's account by accident she left it open and I sent my uncle who my mom hates a friend request thinking it was mine and I need to stop the friend request. I put him on her block list but will that take away the friend request? Thanks for you time!!

I think that if you block him (in her account), then un-block him, that will remove the request (or you could just leave him blocked since she hates him) - if you unblock him, you can confirm that the friend request has been removed by viewing his profile. You should no longer see the "pending" button near the top.

I just love new friends.  Especially the accidental ones.  :)

you are better off 'blocking' the person first, even if you decide to deactivate the profile. if the person receives email notifications, they will see your friend request. this is why it's important to block the person as soon as possible, before facebook can send them an email.
