Not unless he had treated me really badly, which would only apply to one.
All the others, I want to hear they're doing well, and I like to imagine, whether it's true or not, that if they are doing well somehow I had something to do with it. I probably didn't, but I'll try to fool myself into thinking I did.
I stay in touch with a few of them.2

I actually had this exact situation happen last year. She sent me a friend request after having not spoken for five years. I was curious, so I quickly browsed her Facebook page and learned that her husband wanted a divorce and that her mother had died.
No, I was not happy that things were going badly for her, even though she was terrible to me.2
