    I was just wondering if any of you are friends with your ex-lovers on Facebook.

    I stay in touch with 2 and I've been married in a committed relationship for years

    Yes, both ex-boyfriends and ex-lovers, and one is now married to a woman I also consider a friend. He plays it safe, though, and doesn't respond to my comments on the articles he posts 99% of the time, but she does. I've always thought that was strange, but I suppose he doesn't want to make her jealous or something. I think it's weird because I think it's pretty fucking obvious that I'm head over heels in love with TheBoyfriend and her husband and I dated about 15 years ago. It's not like I'm a threat. :rolleyes:

    I was, but not anymore. As much as i would like to have stayed friends with them it is just not a good idea on any level. Or at least not for me.

    With one, I am. Two of the others wouldn't be a good idea. The rest, I have no idea if they are on facebook.

    I am on so infrequently that it probably doesn't matter, anyway.

    I friended someone whom I used to date, from way way back. I really don't do much on my facebook wall or even comment too much on other people's wall.

    My guy defriended the woman he dated right before me. And also the mutual friend they had.

    A few. They all ended on good terms, so we just check in with each other once in a while to say Hi.

    Yeah, like Infernal, I tend to end relationships on a good note. I have one (serious) ex with whom I'm not in contact. It's kind of sad, but it's for good reason.

    It depends on the people in the relationship. The person that I'm friends with on FB--love of my life, and, we went to Berklee together. We decided to break when he left to go back to Jersey. I was a big mess when he left and for awhile afterward. We were and have been in contact. But have always avoided the "Us" discussion. Now, it's 30 years later. And, I can only smile when I think about him.

    I was with someone for 13 years and the last few years we were only friends. So, both of us realized it was a great thing that he moved on. He and I and his new gf and I are great friends. She and I hang out more than the 3 of us hang out.

    So, yes it does happen, but, it's what the relationship is between the people.

    Yup. About 5 ex-girlfriends and 3 ex-fuckbuddies. I don't interact with them much, though. It's been fine, no hassles or drama.

    Yes, most of them. Recently found my longest high school girlfriend. She lives close, so we had dinner together one night. Still hit it off...we laughed and joked all night. Later we got together, and the sex was still good...and lasted longer before orgasm, too! (I came five times over eight hours, and she came more than that. Her orgasm was always very reachable.)

    one.

    i had several on there but they were prone to cause trouble.
    i defriended any that perved on me to the point of rude.
    married men getting drunk, musing on past sex :rolleyes:

    i now have just the one on there.
    we flirt but never overstep the mark.
    he's a real friend who i can talk to.
