Are you friends with any of your exes on facebook?

Its me again! Because I kindly resigned since I want to do the healthy thing. Just feels weird to cut them out when youre not arguing with them or anything. Am I doing the right thing? But see even if we dont talk for years it will just go right back to how it was again. Distance and noncommunication has not changed our friendship, so what makes me think it will be different this time?we will always love eachother I just dont get why I have to

  • No boy friends for you, for a year
    This includes old boyfriends from six years ago, that you do not want but he is so in love with you, you will break his heart

    NOT thinking of filling any holes on yourself with any man
    Fix yourself
    And go play with your kid

  • Sure. They send me a friend request, message me, ask how I am, and when I say I'm married and sell sex toys, I never hear from them again!
    They're still on my list, like statuses and stuff, but they just know that I've moved on, and nothing more will come of it.

  • You dont have to do anything. Do what is best for you. I am not friends with any of my exes bc I choose not to be. It's what is healthy for me. I think my dh is friends with one or two, maybe. But he had very different relationships with his exes than I did with mine. So it works for him.... It wouldn't for me.

  • I have my son's father on mine. Other than that, nope. I am not friend's with any of them and see no need to maintain contact with them.

  • The way I see it the best way for an ex to get over you is for him to know without a doubt that there is no possibility of you two getting back together. If he hasn't gotten over you in six years, it's unlikely that you'll be able to have a completely platonic relationship. But part of me thinks you just like the guy fawning over you though, but I could be wrong.

    And no, I'm not FB friends with any exes, but my DH was/is my first and only serious relationship.

  • I don't have any exes and if I did, they're exes for a reason!

  • Yeah, I have a few. More than I care to admit, actually. They range from serious relationship to made out with once at a party in HS. LOL

  • It's a personal choice. Personally they are exs for a reason and I do not want to keep in touch.
