Just for fun and because I’m curious!
I sometimes creep on my SO’s ex on facebook. It’s a pretty rare thing I do, maybe once a month or two. Not sure why I do it, I guess because she’s been trouble in the past, but I just creeped and saw she’s engaged now! Im happy that she’s some other guys problem now, and hopefully completely out of our lives, and sorta mad that she got a ring before me 😉 but mine is coming any moment, so I really don’t care. She’s just a pain for us, so I like to keep a slight tab on her…
I never ever creep on any of my exes. I could care less about them!
How about you guys!? Do you creep occasionally?

@wildflowerbee: More than I care to admit. On his exes, my exes, their current SOs. I FB stalk like no one’s business, though. I should honestly work for the FBI.

I just deleted my FB. I hate it (facebook) so much! I wasn’t on there for long, but my ex’s wife posts EVERYthing. I had to use self control not to look, but I looked once, and it was like I knew everything. I saw their house, everything about it, their child, his business, I mean everything! Her garden. We were not even FB friends. The FB phemon really weirds me out. It is just so much better for me not to know and I wish people didn’t put everything out there. I know- what their child got for Christmas, the time their parent’s visted, the pictures of his brother helping build… just too much!

@Vidya: LOL @ working for the FBI
I’m FB friends w/ my SO’s ex and I friggin hate to admit it, but she’s super nice to me and I like her, but I totally want to hate her. We’ve met before a few times and she’s going to be a part of our lives b/c it’s his best friend’s sister. There’s no way around it.
I’m not FB friends w/ any of my serious exes, so theres very, very minimal stalking when it comes to that. One of them is actually blocked. And I hate to admit that it ever happens, but sometimes I’m just really curious. I really hate not knowing things lol.

If you look at your own exes, what compels you to FB stalk them? Just curious. Is it because you still care about them in some way, or is it because you want to be doing better than they are? Why the vested interest? I’m curious to know.

I do occasionally. Usually my own exes but I also creep on the people my exes are dating.
@StuporDuck: I do it cuz I’m nosy lol. I wanna see what kind of girl he’s with now. I don’t care about them, just wanna see

@StuporDuck: The only ex that I creep was my first boyfriend and he did not turn out so well. I creep mainly out of curiosity, see how he’s doing, hope he’s getting it together, and I’m almost ashamed to admit it, to feel better about myself? He has a kid with the girl he dated after me. She got pregnant in high school and part of the reason we broke up was becasue I wouldn’t sleep with him. I guess I just like to remind myself what a bullet I dodged sometimes.

@StuporDuck: Because I want to see if his/her life is sucking and then feel great about myself. Or find out that whoever they’re dating looks like a manatee and think, “Ha, waaaay more manatee looking than me – win!”
It’s a terribly unflattering thing, but it’s the truth. Now, it’s not like I compulsively do this or base anything off it, but once in awhile, it’s a thing. 😛

I check on my ex maybe every month or so..
When we were together he was the biggest commitmentophobe ever. Now he is a girlfriend and he seems to do everything with her that I wanted him to do with me.
It doesn’t bother me, it just shows me how I wasnt the right one for him, and I am happy he is happy

My ex is a huge douche and just thinking about him makes me want to vomit, so no I don’t look him up. I actually have all my social media locked down so he can’t creep on me anymore.
@cbee: I hate Facebook too. I deleted my old account from college and now I have an account with only about 30 friends, mostly close friends and family members who live far away that I want to keep up with.

JulesSchnooks For me, I guess it’s curiousity and having wayyy too much idle time on my hands. All of these are guys I casually dated, not any serious ex’s so they were never serious enough relationships to bring up feelings of jealousy and competitiveness. None of them were terrible guys (and one is still a good friend) so I wish them all well.
BFs ex’s–Again, it’s curiousity. Learning a little about who he once loved and choose to pursue a relationship with gives me insight into who he used to be. Plus, there’s some great pictures of him as an 19-year old on his first serious GF’s profile and it’s cool to see what he used to look like.

No, I’ve never done that. I honestly don’t care what any of my exes are doing.
I have one ex on Facebook because he’s a mutual, though fairly distant, friend of me and FI. We never message each other though, and I don’t really follow his updates.
