Friend like on Facebook?

Eh, I would just ignore it.  FI was with someone from his hometown for four years before we got together.  It’s a small town where everyone knows each other.  FMIL sees/talks to his ex-GF sometimes.  It’s weird, but nothing to get upset over.

My FMIL joined FB and FI’s ex added her as a friend, I didn’t get mad b/c she added FI’s entire family on FB. They don’t post on eachothers walls or anything but I occasionally see that ex will “like” something but she does that on FI’s wall (yes they are fb friends) and it doesn’t bother me, she’s moved on (now married w/kids) and they basically grew up together in the same small town so it’s expected that they would still be acquaintances.

You can’t really dictate who your FMIL should be friends with, on facebook or in real life.  You got the man 😉

Now if FMIL is always telling your FI how he shouldn’t marry you and should marry her instead, there’s a problem that your FI should deal with.

I wouldn’t worry about it. The mom and sisters of my sister’s HS boyfriend just friended her on FB. They knew her for a long time and they like her independent of her ex-BF. I wouldn’t think anything of it if I were you.

also…different ages of people don’t use FB the same way. Some people don’t say NO to anyone. I would ignore it!

I can sympathize with you on getting upset, but I wouldn’t get “too” upset.  When DH came home from Iraq, his family had a huge homecoming party for him.  They sent out invitations on facebook and his ex girlfriend (nasty breakup) was one of the people they invited.  I was seriously annoyed, but oh well.  lol  Try to just brush this one off!

I know it must be annoying to you but just ignore it. Especially if it was done on purpose to upset you show her that you are bigger than that and you’ll come off looking like the better person.

I think ignoring is a good plan!  I am actually one of those people who doesn’t say “no” to anyone who tries to friend me on FB… that is unless I’ve never heard of them.  And I do know some older people who will “friend” anyone they’ve ever had any interaction with.  Just chalk it up to generational and blow it off!  🙂

I don’t really think it is a big deal, as long as the ex-girlfriend isn’t trying something crazy you have nothing to worry about.

I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m still facebook friend with my highschool boyfriend and his mom. They live 3000 miles away. It doesn’t mean anything and my FI doesn’t care.
