How many exes are on your FB?

Trying to work out what is normal.

I have one, who I went out with for 3 months when I was 15! It was more a brief (and very chaste) interlude in a very long friendship.

Two ex boyfriends, and a few shags. Nice guys. Wouldn't have been with them if they weren't.

None as, happily, I see no reason to subscribe to a load of old FuckBollocks.

at least 25

Not on facebook ever.......and would probably never befriend any of my exes if I was subscribed

1 only - he was a friend first, then we went out briefly, then went back to being friends. We went to each others' weddings too, and his wife is also on my FB. No drama there.

Wouldn't bother with any others though.

So not normal to "friend" every ex you have ever had then? Even the complete nightmares?

Smeghead Sat 06-Oct-12 02:17:16

Caveat....I loathe FB but have family and friends that have moved away and it is the easiest way to KIT. The ex I do have on there moved to Canada with his DW, otherwise he wouldnt be on there either!

Thumbwitch Sat 06-Oct-12 02:17:28

No that would be very weird, Smeghead and suggest unresolved ishoos and possible stalkerish tendencies.

Smeghead Sat 06-Oct-12 02:40:09

Not stalkerish but definitely ishoos, infact I would go so far as to say ISHOOOOOS. sad

My family is scattered across the globe and we KIT by phone/email/skype. Some of the younger generation have FB accounts but they're aware I won't be viewing/contributing or otherwise using that particular medium in any way.

Smeghead Sat 06-Oct-12 02:50:17

This isnt about my FB use, but someome elses, can we stick to the question please rather than slagging of FB? Cheers smile

Smeghead Sat 06-Oct-12 02:50:33

off not of!

Thumbwitch Sat 06-Oct-12 02:52:05

Well I guessed it wasn't you Smeghead - is it an ex of yours who has tried to friend you, or some family/friend who is trying to friend all their exes?

Smeghead Sat 06-Oct-12 02:54:51

Or my husband.............. sad

Smeghead Sat 06-Oct-12 02:55:34

That would be the same husband who had a sexting affair with an ex when I was pg.

dont say it, just dont.

I know.

Thumbwitch Sat 06-Oct-12 03:03:56

Ah feck, I'm sorry to hear that Smeghead. sad

izzyizin Sat 06-Oct-12 03:11:01

FB is the spawn of the devil in much the same way as your ex. Think about it and buy a long spoon.

I'm friends with 2 exes on fb. They are friendly in real life too. Would not be friends virtually or in reality with the horrid ones. Actually one is bonkers but I'm still in touch with her now adult kids and it was a very long time ago

I think it's like real life- avoid the idiots

DinosaursOnASpaceship Sat 06-Oct-12 08:18:51

I've got to try and count them blush

I have:

Casual relationship man that used to fill in gaps between relationships. Nice guy.
Ex fiancée from a few years ago. We still get on well.
Ex husband. We share photos of the dc although he doesn't use it very often.
Ex boyfriend. Went out for a year at school and then again for a few months as adults.
Recent exp - but he's deactivated his account.
A few short flings.

So umm quite a few.

picnicbasketcase Sat 06-Oct-12 08:20:14

None, I don't have any exes.

BrittaPerry Sat 06-Oct-12 08:22:27

I only have two exes. One was an adult who took advantage of me when I was too young, so he can fuck off.

Other doesn't have fb, but I have his new girlfriend, who is lovely smile
