Interestingly, Facebook did reunite me with a stalker I never knew I had. I guess when it comes to stalking he's really, really good at it.

It's been a trip reuniting with friends from grade school through high school but my exes are exes for a reason. Not to mention my curly thick hair is now a balding shadow of its former glory and my waist line is a bit bigger than it was 15-25 years ago.

The court settlement said you agreed you wouldn't talk about me.

Yup, "reunited" after 11 years with the only woman I ever asked to marry me. I was so relieved to learn she is alive, healthy and happy. She is still gorgeous and it was one of the best things that happened to me this year.

And it's been a GREAT year for me.

I just joined FB the other day. First thing I did was look up all of my old ex-girlfriends and place them on my ignore/block list.

There is a reason for the "ex-" as a prefix.
 
2009-09-13 03:05:27 PM
Most of you Fark kids aren't old enough to have any real exes.

Give it a few decades.

I absolutely refuse to search out my ex-gf's on facebook. And as it turns out they feel the same about me.

/kidding!

This thread reminded to go block my stalker ex from seeing my facebook page. Thanks, Fark! You're always so helpful.

An ex of mine immediately found me on Facebook--less than a week after I joined, I think. I was polite, but I ignored her friend requests. She left me alone until she heard through the grapevine (we still have many mutual friends) that I got engaged. All of a sudden she was all over my nuts again. I continued to ignore her.
 
2009-09-13 03:18:43 PM
wow, 17 comments and no FB haters.

Are you ill Fark?
 
2009-09-13 03:18:53 PM
almost every one of my exes have sent me invites. I think it's hilarious. Check out my hot wife, check out my awesome kids, look! I'm living an awesome life! So sorry to hear about your third divorce. Wow, that really sucks that your kid from your second husband stole your car and credit cards. Can't belive your still tending bar at Ruby Tuesday's!

Yea, good to see you too!

Seriously. I'm guessing his exes (all 1 of them, if that many) have zero interest in looking up a douche bag like him.
 
2009-09-13 03:23:23 PM
Shouldn't the obvious tag have been used? Every time there is a social networking site that becomes somewhat popular, the same thing happens. LiveJournal, MySpace, Tribe, Friendster, Facebook, etc. It's not a new phenomenon suddenly caused by Facebook.

Had an old fling from college contact me a while back. Was never really a girlfriend, just somebody I was physical with. I didn't accept her friend request and she was a bit miffed at that. But my wife would not have been at all happy to have this (still attractive) girl I once bumped uglies with on my friends list (and BTW, she's kinda psycho).

On the other hand, an old HS girlfriend who I was friends with both before and after we dated (and before I met my wife) is not only my facebook friend, but my wife and I are also godparents to one of her kids. Goes to show you, if you had a relationship that was healthy and not just sex, sometimes it's not too ackward to pick up the friendship part of it longterm.

/yeha, I know, cool story bro!
 
2009-09-13 03:24:13 PM
Nope. Every woman I even tried dating or had a thing for is already married. And even then, I'm nothing to be chased after anyway. :)

LOL, you sound bitter dude.

I'm currently "stalking" a girl I knew quite a while ago. Her profile is locked, but I've gone back a few times to check on that. I'm creepy.
 
2009-09-13 03:29:43 PM
Thanks to Facebook, I just went on a date with my first kiss (1985), whom I hadn't seen in over 20 years. She has become drop-dead gorgeous...I'm still...well, me. I was smitten, she didn't feel anything. She hugged me goodnight as though my body were wrapped in electric barbed wire.

I'll get over it.


/almost forgot: I'm getting a kick out of some of these responses.

FB has it's uses. I'm not a fan of the 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 requests to use whatever retarded application my friends & relative seem to find though.

If you really wanted to be a dick, you would just ignore their comments when they contact you. But my guess is when they're blocked it would just look like you aren't on Facebook.

Facebook is creepy, invasive and stalkerish.
If I want to give someone info or pictures, I contact them directly.
Logged on to my daughters fb a few weeks ago and immediately it showed who my friends were, WTF? It got into my email account and extracted info immediately and without consent.

I think we can all guess which half of those relationships was the problem.

My first girlfriend from 25 years ago contacted me a few months ago. She was cute and 95 pounds back then. She's at least twice that now. Still was cool to reminisce about the good old days though.

Hold on - you logged into your DAUGHTER'S account and it showed who YOUR friends were? I'm confused.

I'm also pretty sure that FB isn't able to get into your email account without consent.

I dunno, meeting up with old flings on FB doesn't seem so bad.

Then again, I met my GF while playing World of Warcraft....

It isn't. Somebody didn't pay attention as they were clicking through the signup process.

I had to sign up to view her stuff, and when I did, immediately it showed my 'friends' that were facebook members - info taken from my email. Creepy. Most people don't realize that all these data bases aren't here for purely altruistic purposes.
 
2009-09-13 03:57:05 PM
I came across a lot of old crushes and flames on Facebook, but now I'm balding and fat so I have to keep making up excuses why I can't see them when they want to meet up. Sux.

One of my grade school friends younger sister found me on FB and asked me out for drinks. Halfway through the night she was rubbbin up all over me, yeah I did it,b/c I had been through a long dry spell but now she is emailing me every day calling me superman, sayin she has the crave etc.. and has tried to friend my daughter as well. Thanks FB for getting me laid, but I sure could do without the crazy...
