  • I see all these posts about EXes... Why does my ex not like me? This and that about an ex... should we get back together...

    Who cares WHAT an ex thinks of you or how he/she treats you? They are an EX. no one has any business communicating with an EX anyway.

    An EX means.. in the past. In my life, after any break up, an EX is out of my mind. I move on almost immediately and never think of, try to contact, check up on, etc...

    Breakups happen for a reason...

    I'm not talking about someone who moved away... I'm talking about relationships that ended due to cheating, abuse, incompatibility and such...

    Who CARES about an EX? Who cares about what an EX thinks of them?

    Then "breaks"... what's that all about? all this is is an admission you can't commit in a relationship. Taking a vacation from a relationship isn't going to fly.

    ALSO... getting back together after a breakup.. or chasing someone to get back together... sorry folks, the same issues are gonna be there.

    Move on... where you found one guy/gal, there will always be more.

  • All of my exes except like 2 are deleted and or blocked. The two still on my list... it's a stretch to say they're exes. We dated... didn't take off but stayed cool with each other. I root for them, there's no Jade between myself and those two. Even most of my actual exes... doesn't bother me, it was just best that way, a good clean cut.

  • There is a reason why they are exes. Let's keep it that way! Trying to remain "friends" at any level is almost always a mistake (unless you have children together.)

  • i would never stay "friends" or "subscribed" to any ex. Once we break up, I immediately unfriend them. Women love to think they have men "friends". Sorry but that is a fantasy. The only reason men stay friendly with women is in hopes of sex at some point. They may not even actively think about it. We just keep you women on our radar and maybe down the road both of us are single and Boom goes the dynamite.

  • I have a couple of them; I don't talk to them often, but I don't see any problem with the ones that I think of as old friends now. There are some exes that I don't like appearing on my social media, but not to the point that I block them.. It's just that there are some old resentments that they recall even if they don't talk about those times.

  • My ex is on Facebook, as is my son (which we had together). I don't really communicate with her unless I have to (those issues pertaining to our son). Outside of that, while I might note her postings, I never respond (at least not to her). Mind you I have thoughts and feelings about some of what she says and does on the site, but again, I also know our son is aware, I'm not going to do or say anything that will cause him grief.

  • One I email on her birthday; she is not on FB.
    One I visit her FB page every now and then, but we are not FB friends because of spouses. I trade emails with her a few times a year.
    One is a FB friend and she is the one who sucked me more into FB.
    One I FB message on her birthday.
    One has me blocked on FB but I email with her mom.
    One is dead but I am FB friends with her daughters.

  • Imho It's a bad idea especially post break up. If you're able to control yourself and not go on their page, just remove them from your feed.

  • I can't even get a woman to accept my friend request again, we weren't even dating, she knew I liked her though.. and it's been pending for two months now. We were friends had a falling out over a period of time and stopped talking etc then we seemed to get back on track I suppose talking every now and then and conversation flows like there never was an issue, everything seems peachy but she won't accept it for some reason.

  • My girlfriend broke up with me in November. I still have her on my facebook in case she wants to get back together. But once I find someone else I will block her. She was still in my heart for about 3 months after the breakup. And a little in my mind to this day. If you have already found someone than remove them and move on. If you still love him than try getting back together depending on why you guys broke up.

    I see people keep their exs on social media and you hear them talk about them all the time πŸ˜‚, it's great to make fun of them though!

  • depends on the ex; i have one i'm still on speaking terms with, though i don't go out of my way to contact him or check his profile. he was a good friend before we dated and, even though we aren't close now, i didn't see an issue with keeping him on fb.

    the others, though? blocked and removed.

  • Personally, its not something that I would do. Once we are done, I really dont want that person to keeps tabs on my life and know what I am doing. And I dont want to be tempted to look at their page, so I just block them.

  • For now I'm friends on Facebook with my one ex that I dated for 2 years. Usually I block ex's but I've kept him on so he can see how great I'm doing in life and in love. I've moved on 100% but he's still an ass, and a part of me likes him seeing how fab I'm doing/looking lol.

    Immature? Maybe... lol. Satisfying? Yes.

  • I'm still friends with my ex on most social media. He was at one point in my life very special to me. The break up ended well and after we both took some time for ourselves we were able to be friends again and we catch up from time to time.

  • I have three of my ex's on Facebook. One doesn't get on regularly (therefore is never in my feed). The other two do but one we actually are friends and I use it as a way to keep up with each other. The other... I wasn't trying to be the petty ex that blocked him on every social media (even though I probably should have 😴). But I kept him bc I was curious to know how his current relationship would work out and why she deserved his faithful and not me. And then also, I wanted to know why he was hitting my up again trying to 'catch up and make sure I'm ok' at 2 in the am. πŸ‘‰πŸΎπŸ™ƒ. Oh and I added his ex/current girlfriend too. Lol πŸ˜‚

    In regards to my most recent ex, I created a new facebook under a different name, a new twitter... anything he could use to try to talk to me again - gone.

  • I've never been in a relationship but I have on social media the guys I was in love with, I don't see the reason why should I delete them. I deleted only one of them he loved me for 10 years and couldn't get over the fact that I rejected him, last year he asked me out again and when I rejected him again he got so angry that started insulting me :D And I deleted him, he still follows me and sends me romantic messages from time to time. I don't read them.

  • I usually delete my exes. There was only one I kept on Facebook, since it was left open to possibly being together again someday. Now, I just see him as a friend and wouldn't date him again. We talk and everything, but I'm single right now, but once I officially start dating this certain guy I'm going to delete my ex.

  • Past is past. There is no point in hoping for them to get back with me. I also see nompoint in sharing my life or seeing how theirs is going. I wish them the best and rest is unimportant to me. So i wouldn't bother to keep them on my social media accounts.

  • There was a guy a few years ago that I really liked, and the feelings were mutual. However, a couple of misunderstandings and differing class schedules tore us apart 2 years ago. We didn't talk for a while but now are on good terms with each other. I know he really doesn't count as an "ex", but still... Reconciliation is possible :)

  • Unfriended all but one... he got mad the last time I deleted him. He's married now, I'm not and it was messy back then. I don't want to be networked with that kind of negative energy but we barely talk and his page is very professional so whatevs.
