What happens when you close the game completely (in the background) and reopen it?
And how long has it been since you got the invite?
I remember this happening to me too on April 10th. My friend suggested ignoring it, and I noticed it went away the next day.
It also happened to me on Wednesday, May 8th at 9 pm EST right before I hosted a party when I was trying to add a friend. In that specific occurrence a friend and I both sent a friend request to each other at the same time. I wonder if that caused an issue. However, that resolved itself out within 10-15 mins so my friend could attend my party.
Update from me too. I thought it corrected itself, but my accept/decline friend glitch persists too.
My baby alt account and main account are on each other’s Game Friends list. Even though my main account “Mal” is the only friend on my baby account, it is also stuck in the Messages tab. Accepting Mal as a friend does not remove the request — it only says that the request or action failed.
@simmerdownMAL Do you remember if you sent a friend request from both your main account to the baby alt account, and also from the baby account to the main account? Or was it only from one account to another?

The former. It was sent from both accounts when I didn’t see the request initially appear.
I don’t recall which one I sent first, but it was probably from baby to main since I have my main code memorized. It’s only stuck in my baby account messages. I’m assuming that sending from each account at about the same time messed it up 🤷♀️
I got my friend request to go away, but I don’t know how other players would be able to do it because I control both accounts. Other players may not be able to contact the other person with the stuck friend invitation.
This is how my glitch occurred.
(I wonder if this glitch occurs for other people when two players send friend invitations to each other at the same time).
This is how I fixed it.
If anyone is experiencing this glitch and has the means to contact the other player outside the game, then I suggest the following.
I am circling back to this because I experienced the bug again on the same account, and fixed it again.
A player sent me a friend request yesterday to attend my party. I did not send her a friend request though.
Today I noticed her request come in and was not able to accept or decline it. I contacted her on Discord to ask her if my account appeared on her contact list, and it did not. I asked her to send another friend request to my account. After she had notified me that she sent a request, I accepted the request, and it was a success. The request disappeared from my messages, and she was added to my contacts.
