Are you friends with any exboyfriends on Facebook?

DH has no problem at all what so ever with me having long ago exs as friends. BUT, his mother disagrees and is giving me a hard time about it.

  • Yes, I am friends with several of them. My husband doesn't have a problem with it and his mom doesn't know. She's my friend on facebook too so she could look at my friends list, but I don't advertise that certain males are my exbfs. My husband is not friends on fb with any of his ex's although some have requested him.

  • No..Neither my husband or I have FB accounts. Just not something either one of us has ever gotten into.

    IF we did do FB.. No I would not have exes as "friends" Ex's are ex's for a reason and I have no desire or interest in being "friends" with someone I had a relationship with nearly 30 years ago.

  • Yes I do. My first long term bf from high school is on my FB. My dh has no problem with it. I mean he was my bf 25 yrs ago lol and lives 1000 miles away. I think your mil needs to mind her own business.

  • Not anymore. I had one of my ex on there and my husband freaked. So I deleted him to avoid problems. Funny thing is my husbands has a couple of his ex sex buddies on his.... hypocrite.

  • I am friends with one ex on FB. But we were friends before and after we dated. We were always really good friends, and we know that we could never make it work romantically. My SO knows all about it, he knew from the start. He's fine with it. He knows that if he had a problem with it, he could talk to me and we'd figure it out.

    He's friends with a couple of ex girlfriends, too. It doesn't bother me because I know I can trust him. Their relationship(s) didn't work for whatever reason, and he's with me now.

    Besides, if either of us was going to cheat, FB would be the least of our problems.

  • No.

    Answer by NannyB. at 3:45 PM on Apr. 1, 2011

  • No, I don't see the point in it. They are your "ex" for a reason. I take that back, I'm friends with my very first boyfriend, from 6th grade, on FB. We never even kissed or held hands, those were the days when 6th graders were innocent. He and I stayed friends all the way through high school. Other than that, and I don't even count him as a true "ex", no I'm not friends with any of my ex-boyfriends. My husband isn't friends with any of his ex-girlfriends either. We have more respect for each other than that.

  • No but I am friends with an ex-boyfriend's sister on FB. She and I were best friends when I dated her brother. I am also friends with a friend who dated my former step brother but she's not friend's with him on FB.
