  • Yes and no!

    I'm not the kinda person to spy other people on social media, and I don't do that to most of my previous partners, 'cause why would I, but then there's this one ex that's an exception. I didn't use to cyber stalk him but then I realized he was doing it to me and that we both still had feelings for each other. Our break up was due to a stupid misunderstanding during an argument and I think we've both been too proud to admit our mistakes and talk it trough, even though we still want to be with each other. So I guess we've both been on the fence of saying something, making something happen, and we're going back and forth about contacting/trying to figure out if we should get back together, and just cyber stalk each other to see how the other one is doing, not ready to let go just yet.

    • This is kind of similar to my situation. How long did you guys date? And what social media accounts do you stalk him on?

  • Cavemen would crawl into isolation when they lost love, not eat.. they'd also still try to find their lover long after they'd gone... We're emotional beings at our core... anyone who say they don't keep tabs, who grew up in the digital age, either was in a platonic, blah rel'ship that was more about convenience or just hasn't experienced the kinda love yet that makes ya so happy & scared at the same time that when it ends, ya feel unbearable pain... ya can't help but monitor their social media accounts like a drug addict trying Hold onto what he believes to be the greatest high he'll ever have in his life...

  • I kind of did when I still had feelings. We've been broken up over a year so no. I still occasionally look on people who used to be in my life pages though

  • I think when it was still 'fresh' like maybe 1 or 2 months after the break up, I would look on his facebook, just to see if he wrote anything on how he was feeling. After a while, I moved on and forgot about it because I actually felt like a stalker lol.

  • Because we are still friends on facebook and I see his updates on my newsfeed, I check it out. Nothing to be jealous of but just to see what's going on

    • I don't blame em for cheating on you. And you think they wouldn't cheat on you because you are pretty? Well I can tell you that external beauty isn't all there is to life, he probably saw your nasty attitude.

    • I said "petty" not pretty πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • I use to do this but all it did was annoy me. So I dont do this anymore. Stalking meaning you have not gotten over the person yet.

  • Nope we were facebook friends but now we're not even that anymore. We kind of got into a small fight which lead to me saying we need to cut ties again and just stop talking to each other completely. Long story short, nobody is going to question my faith or beliefs cause I don't reach their standards. So I told him peace out and good bye. I don't hate him, I have nothing against him and I wish him the best in the world and that God continues to do amazing things in his life. But we just can't click like that anymore.. just can't, sorry.

    • That's interesting to hear. A girl at college seemed to be interested in me, bothered me though. And when I told her to stop that, she's been the one blocking me on facebook. Although I doubt she'd ever known I'd once have looked at her profile. Or can you see that?

    • If people block you, you can't see their profile soooo.

    • I just think she might have facebook stalked me

  • I will be honest, I have. I was in a relationship for a few years and it ended poorly. Not cheating or anything, just parted on bad terms after an argument about finances. I would google her name every now and then when she popped into my mind but I was glad to see her happy and healthy mostly.

  • I said no, but to an extent I do. We broke up just a week or two ago, but prior to the breakup their depression and anxiety were worsening so I want to make sure they're safe. Also, I still care deeply for them, and looking at them brings me comfort, but also sadness. I never look up my other exes though, so it may just be a phase.

  • When I separated with my ex wife. The first thing I did was remove her from social media platforms. Facebook, twitter, instagram, blah, blah, blah. I felt we needed space to deal with our own emotions, and feelings regarding our failed relationship. She was upset, which surprised me. But even before I moved out, I was seeing both of us start posting memes, or shuttle statements directed at each other. I didn't want it played out online.

  • Yeah. I'm not friends with her anymore so I never see what she's up to, and sometimes I get curious about what's she's doing. Don't really want to be friends again. I just think it would be awkward, even after a few years being apart.

  • Depending on how the relationship ended, and if we are still able to be friends, or if my ex is a vitriolic type of person, I will often block/ban so they can't cause any more damage in my life, and put them out of sight and mind.
