I'm in a great relationship, but now and then I'll look up an ex to see what he's up to. I look up exes I was with for a long time somewhat frequently, and some other short term exes every now and then.
Is that weird? Do any of you all do that? I don't think I have any romantic feelings toward any of them, and I love my boyfriend...I just want to see what their up to.

I voted "once a week or more," but only on a technicality!
Most of my favorite exes (the ones I still get along with) and some of the not-favorite ones are Facebook friends, Twitter followers, etc. So, whenever any of them posts something, I see it automatically.
I usually don't actively look them up once a week - just whenever they post something interesting or a major life change like moving to a new city. Like you, I do this even if I'm not interested in getting back together.
I don't need or want to know where they are day-to-day, who they're hanging out with, what their favorite places are, or anything like that. I suppose I just like knowing they're alive and what big things they're up to: jobs, big creative projects, travel abroad, etc. And I admit, I'm curious whether they're "In A Relationship" or engaged or married, even though I probably shouldn't be.1
