Ex H, this is odd, yes?

long story short, ex H was a serial cheat, one major affair uncovered and exposed, then several women on various social media pockets (Facebook, messenger, twitter, linkedin etc) discovered after that who he'd flirt with daily. All women he knew, various childhood friends, a few industry colleagues etc. After a final warning and scores of excuses I cut my losses and left him.

Divorce wasn't ugly, but wasn't pleasant either, mostly due to him continuing to lie and attempt to hide various assets, then he re-wrote history and painted me out to be a complete cow after I kept most of his indiscretions quiet. he played the victim, I moved on.

4 years on I'm happy as Larry, he's married his third wife (yes, he IS Ian Beale) and we never have to come into contact due to no mutual children and now not living in the same county.

So this week I get the following "Hi Dolly, twatface ex would like to connect with you on Linkedin". Why on earth would he think that is appropriate? We have no professional connection whatsoever.

Tell me it's not just me who finds this hilariously inappropriate?

I agree, it's weird. Block if you can 😊

Linkedin sends automatic emails to anyone in the contacts list of the person who has a profile. Just ignore and delete.

It might not be him, it might be LinkedIn.

My DH's LinkedIn seems to have randomly sent out some requests to people in his contact list recently. It was quite strange.

Ah, thanks ladies. It's perhaps not as creepy as I thought. I've now blocked him cheers!

But have to admit I would be secretly wondering if he did send that what fuckwittery he would try and throw my way, but then curiosity run over the cat I spose confused
