Is it unreasonable to only want to be friends with people who tolerate all the annoying things about you?

Personally, I don't feel like I should change just to make friends.

Here's the thing: If you're willing to tolerate everything about me, we can possibly make a friendship work, if not, goodbye.

It depends on what annoying things you do. If you have an annoying laugh, most people will tolerate that, and find to be a quirk of yours, as well as funny.

But if you have some seriously annoying traits, like constantly shirking important appointments, then you'll eventually lose all your friends.

No nothing serious like that, I mean things are annoying but are unintentional.

I think it is unreasonable to expect everyone else to tip-toe around your sensibilities. Of course, they should not be tearing you down, but then again you shouldn't drop them because they give you constructive criticism. You want to be around people who make you better, not allow you to become stagnant, IMO.
The moment you declare a set of ideas to be immune from criticism, satire, derision, or contempt, freedom of thought becomes impossible. - Salman Rushdie

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. - Bertrand Russell

Never change to make friends it's like being false.

Why do you feel the need to accept friendship requests from people who aren't you friends in the first place but only random people on a website you have never met . I'll assume you are talking about DDO

If you are intolerable then people will not stick around long enough to make friends with you. Therefore, I deduce that if you have friends, they are tolerating you. Just do not test the limits of their tolerance.
