Can't re-add a friend after I removed him. Didn't they fix this?

I can't add someone I want to trade with cause I made a bad decision to remove cause I didn't want to pressure the guy out of a deal. So I'm trying to re-add him but I don't see him under friend invites.

I re-added a friend I removed yesterday.
Are you sure the person hasn't blocked you?

I'm sure cause I added him when he was offline, and I removed him after a few minutes. And I tried re-adding a few min later but I couldn't. He wasn't online all this time, cause I saw his green border fade to grey before I added.

Yea. I remember this being an issue and never understood why the hell it was in the first place. Wouldn't surprise me knowing Valve that it isn't fixed.

Steam bugs sometimes, try a restart and see if that fixes it.

Not sure of the reason for this, maybe to prevent someone from spamming friend requests.

The fix is to block them and then unblock them and you should be able to send another friend request.

That didn't work. You posted one of those alt+f4 crap. I can't unblock him and now he can't add me. I need to make a deal otherwise I've made a lose of 1.7 buds. No one gets conned this bad in a game.

Nevermind it worked. I had to do a google search on how to find an unblocked friend that I didn't add and a poster posted a link where I can find my unblocked users. I unblocked him and re-added and it worked. Thanks! Still, yeah, it's still weird how we have to go through hoops cause of these glitches.

So you:

1. Didn't know how to unblock an user? It's so simple: you go to your FRIENDS LIST from the main Steam window, then you'll see the BLOCKED USERS tab. You click on it, and search for the user you want to unblock.

2. Tried the above (what I said), but it didn't work? Then, tell us, the solution. Give us the link you found.

I really wish there would be an unblock button in the blocked users profile like before. It made it much easier.

Contrary to my second post saying it worked for me, I'm having a nightmare with this issue today. I'll try the block/unblock thing!

[edit]
Block/unblock worked thanks

How can you block someone who isn't your friend?
