Friend Suggestions on Facebook

Does anyone know how these work? I know that people can suggest friends to you. I understand that. I also know that if you have a friend in common with someone it will suggest that person to you because you may know them as well.

But, yesterday my ex boyfriend showed up on my friend suggestion box. I logged in and the first thing I see is my suggestion area and it's my ex! Weird. I clicked on him and he must've just joined because he didn't even have any friends yet. I didn't think we'd have any friends in common anyway because we were from 2 different areas. Anyway, so I was trying to figure out how he got there with us having no friends in common, not going to the same school etc.

Maybe he searched me and since he did facebook suggested him to me??

Not a big deal, just curious.
