Ex friend request on facebook

True, we broke up several years ago, and in no way was I trying to reignite the long-lost flame. Welcome to the digital era where you only have three options: accept, decline or ignore. Yet, the fact that we attach such deep meaning to accepting and declining friend requests on a social network is a sad reminder that we willingly continue to be brainwashed by digital mass manipulation. In a recent blog post on 8 Facebook Friend Requests You Should Never Accept , I found the answer to my dilemma: "At times, it is tempting so be updated about your ex's life and to know what they are up to, but you'll probably get much more information you expected or wanted which might create problems and chaos in your life all over again. Even if your breakup wasn't messy, and you walked away from one another on a somewhat amicable note like in my case , it's probably not such a good idea to pry into your past paramour's present life.

Tempted to send a Facebook Friend Request to Your Ex?

Another gentle reminder from Psychology Today that some Facebook connections are best put to pasture: "Breakups are supposed to be the end of a relationship.

Whether the end came via a fight or a fizzle, after a relationship used to end, it required some significant effort to contact an ex or figure out what was going on in his or her life. Now, social networking sites like Facebook can keep you digitally connected to exes, whether or not it's good for you.

Have you been stalking their Facebook page to see what they look like now? They seem to be on Facebook for an exorbitant amount of time each day and it really prevents couples from spending time together. Secondly, and a more serious consequence to losing connection with your spouse, is that people start to look for greener grass. The vehicle for the betrayal of their spouse is more and more Facebook. So, if you are contemplating sending a Facebook friend request to an ex, please ask yourself honestly — WHAT do you hope to get from sending this friend request?
