Cheating Ex Facebook Request

(11 Posts)

My ex bf cheated on me last year after a 9 year relationship and cut all contact with me. It has taken me 6 months to come to terms with what happened and this week I have been making plans to move forwards. I checked Facebook earlier today, I found a friend request from cheating ex. I don't have feelings for him anymore and saw him as weak and pathetic. I did not accept the request and marked it as spam so he can't send me anymore requests. Please assure me that I did the right thing.

Thank you. I was just angry that I got to the stage where I'm starting to move-on and he suddenly decides that he wants to contact me again but I think he was probably trying to see what I was doing and if I've met someone else.

He wants to set you up as option B if nothing better is going on for him, imho. Well done on your assertiveness (but I get the second guessing reflex too). KOKO star

Look at this as a good thing! He's the idiot trying to crawl back and you're the strong, fabulous woman saying "no thanks, you had your chance". Well done. did you have a nose around his page first as I know I would have done

I didn't have a nose around on his page, I was just too shock at his brass neck.

I'd decline the request and block him.

Oh and I was very hmm as well. I've since told my dbro about it and he said that I have never needed ex bf and never will. Guess he's right grin

well done.. Yes you absolutely did the right thing

Very well done there. That is a good decision. He is not worth your time anymore. You got to wear your crown again, heads up and find a better man for you.
