Dear Ms. Camden,

Having reviewed the many applications for friendship I have received recently, it is with great regret that I inform you I am unable to accept your application for friendship on at this time.
I recently received an especially fine crop of friendship requests. Unfortunately, the number of requests that I can accept is limited and it is standard procedure that applicants are rejected after a preliminary screening process.
I assure you that each application was reviewed carefully and on an individual basis. Many factors were taken into account – profile integrity, social network, photographs, add-on applications, and number of other friends.
I am aware of the disappointment my decison may bring. Throughout my deliberations, I have kept in mind the time and effort it may have taken for you to build a strong profile and apply for my friendship.
Keep in mind that it was often necessary for me to reject even those applications that would normally have met my traditionally high standards.
I appreciate your application, and I do encourage you to apply again in the near future once you have the opportunity to review and build upon your already outstanding application – many successful applicants only receive acceptance after their second or third round of applications.
Let me take this opportunity to wish you well in what I am sure will be a successful future.

Michael S. Henson
