Adding friends without buying a game

Hey guys, is there a way where I can add friends on steam without buying a game. I would of bought a steam game if steam had a pre-paid card system but no they dont. I tried the cdaction.pl thing and it says I have to be a polish user. I downloaded Half life 2 deathmatch and still no luck. How can I add friends without buying a game? Also, if you gift me a game, feel free to.

Freebies (Alien Swarm, free weekends, other free games...) does not count as a game.
Your friends can add you actually, thats the only way.

What do you want friends on Steam for if you don't have games? If you intend them to gift them to you, they have to add you.

This is done to help prevent phishing.

The friends service is for PAYING customers only.

Security measurement. Just get yourself any cheap game, Fortix is a good guess. Or some game on sale.

They can add you, and you'll get notified, but you still won't be able to chat until you activate your first game

No, people who adds HIM can still use instant messenger to contact him. It is not only paying customers who are allowed to use it, people who are added by BY the paying customers can use it aswell, I should know. Technically you are right and wrong.
