  • If she was a fan of the business, not sure I could stop any of them. But I doubt we'd talk all that much. I'd be respectful, but just keep it to business.

    Follow my personal page? I'd find that creepy. Luckily, so far, only one wanted to do that periodically. I denied it. Periodically, I believe one wanted to in the past. Luckily, though, I'm not sure if they're aware I did a name change, so I'm not sure if they COULD officially find me. Maybe one of them, as I think we still have some mutual friends in common.

  • My ex and I are still friends on FB. We still keep in touch, like posts on each other's walls, etc. I don't mind because I never stopped caring about her, and I know she never stopped caring about me. It probably hasn't been an issue though since neither of us has dated anyone since our break up. It's really all about what's going to be best for you. If still having them on social media is going to hold you back or hurt you, then unfollow them.

  • I don't care, honestly. Then again, I am still friends with all the 'exes' (I only had one 'official' ex). This official ex and I were best friends until a while ago (and it wasn't like we fought or anything, we just drifted apart, I guess). I'm also still in occasional contact with the other guys.

    I mean, unless you have a really bad and bitter breaking up, or your ex has crazy characteristics (like being a stalked, becoming a threat to your safety, taking your content and doing bad things with it).
    If she/he is a normal person, what good comes from blocking them? And what bad comes from letting them be?

  • It depends on how much time has passed. If it's a recent break up; yeah, that's just ASKING for drama. The break up wounds are still too fresh for anyone to be really 'happy' for the other person's love life with others. Personally, I feel the temptation to over-analyses the failures of the relationship is too much for me to handle so I block for my own good as much as theirs. And then there's the "will they/won't they" get back together question. But after a few weeks/months it fades and I wouldn't care if they wanted to "check up" on me or not.

  • I have no control over her, nor do I want to control!! She can Ghost, and online Stalk, all she wants, until she gets tired of seeing how well I am doing, moving on, and living!!
    Maybe stalking/ghosting just hurts her seeing what I am doing. I don't wish anything bad, to her, but she pushed me away.
    I'm moving on, and there are so many AMAZING, WONDERFUL women, to meet!!!

  • It wouldn't bother me. In fact I have one ex (from long ago) that I'm connected with on social media. And if others wanted to I'd be find with that. My current girlfriend has several exes she's connected with too.

    If any of them was hostile then I might not want them following me, but otherwise I think it's fine. I have more of a connection with my exes than a lot of other people that follow me.

  • I wouldn't mind at all. She is still my friend and I still care about her. And it is her choice if she wanted to follow me, why should I stop her. Even if she broke my heart, I would forgive her, and have peace between us

  • All my ex's are my friends. We have learned to appreciate what we had and how it let us grow. So yeah. Absolutely. They at least deserve a good friend for support and kind words for putting up with my immature ass in the past. It really is the least I can do but they seem to appreciate it.

  • I allow it for each of mine who care to follow me, but they understand there is a strict,"No drama" rule. If she chooses to stay in my life she will get along with my friends, my other ex's, and whomever I am currently dating. I have no problems with any of them.

  • Never blocked an ex and only 3 of them follow me at this time. I personally don't care because I don't really feel concerned about anyone following me. They either like me or they don't, they like what I post or they don't. *shrugs* about sums it up. I would be curious if particular exes followed me now, but it would only be. because I'd wonder what changed to make them decide to follow now.

  • It all depends on many things. If we broke up because she was cheating on me or if she broke my heart in some way then I would block her. If we broke up because of something like a mutual loss of feelings and we decided to remain friends then I guess I wouldn't mind.

  • I blocked my ex girlfriend just after we broke up and she did the same with me. We live VERY far away from each other, so I don't think it makes any difference anyway. We don't talk to each other nowadays and this is just how it has to be.

  • I've not blocked her on Facebook because I know she's too nosey for her own good. I know she'll trawl through my feed every so often, and I know she'll feel sneaky about it. Nothing to hide.

  • Block
    1.) Racist voice message and tried to hack my Twitter account
    2.) Pervy messages and asking for nudes when I am dating someone. I never send nudes nor ask for them.

    They both deserve their bans

  • I would allow, unless she is ruining the environment.
    She was a part of your life.
    And yes she does deserve to know about you, since she too loved you equally..
    And may be you never know she might come back.

  • My last relationship was very abusive so I have as little to do with him as possible.
    We've got a little boy so we're in touch on a need-to-know level, but I could never be friendly with him or give him access to what's going on in my life, so no.

    My two exes before him and I follow each other on social media and we still talk. I'm glad I'm still in touch with them. There is no bad feeling there

  • My ex, yes. Because I see no harm in it. We didn’t end on the best terms, but we also didn’t end on terrible terms. I think you shouldn’t let you ex follow you if they are a toxic person and if they bring negative energy to you. So, it really depends. For me, I don’t mind that my ex follows me. I’ve moved on and he no longer effects me. However, we are all different and need different things. If the fact he follows you bothers you, or if it brings up negative emotions, I would block him.

  • Depends which ex. My ex husband was an abusive douchebag so no, I wouldn’t let him. But my ex from when I was 18, we split cuz I moved to Canada. A few years later he came out as gay. It never would have worked between us but I still love him. He’s my best guy friend. I have him on Facebook and IG.

  • I'd probably block him because I'd think of the past relationship as a chapter that has ended and I wouldn't want to keep any connection to him. The only exception would be if we had been friends and started dating just to see if we could be more but mutually agreed that there was nothing romantic between us. In that case, we could go back to being friends without holding each other back from moving on.

  • It depends on how nasty the break up was. If it was really bad I'd probably block them because I wouldn't want them in my life at all and I wouldn't want them seeing my stuff. But if we were on good terms I don't think I'd really care if they followed me on social media or not

  • I don't mind it at all. Assuming I'm on good terms with my ex, which I always try in the end of every relationship I have (platonic or not), I wouldn't mind them following me or being in contact with them. If they did something absolutely awful then I would block them.
