I would ignore the request.

Echoing the suggestion to ignore the request.. if your standard policy is to cut off all contact, don’t even bother accepting the friend request!

Ignore the request if there’s any chance it will stir up unnecessary drama.  There’s no reason you need to be fb friends with him now after 5 years.  DO NOT hide your friends list and add him – even if you’re not trying to be shady, that looks so incredibly shady!

Facebook=stupid drama. Ex or no ex, if you aren’t actually friends with the person, why would you feel obligated to add him to avoid rudeness? He’s not your friend=not facebook friend

If youre worried how your boyfriend will react to accepting an ex on facebook, then for me,that would make me stop and re think the idea. is it really worth the bother and the drama that could possibly come about from it?all for someone who  means so little to your life right now. So what if you do become friends?whats gonna happen,maybe a chat about the old days,wishing each other well etc,but thats about all. Not exactly something worth getting stressed over.

I wouldnt friend him,it seems pointless.

Personally, I don’t think it’s even worth a discussion with your boyfriend. You’re your own person and you want to add him. You said you are both in happy relationships and you think of him fondly, so why not add him and ask him if he and his significant other would like to meet you and your boyfriend for dinner one night? I believe that if a person was cool enough to warrant a relationship, they’d probably also make an awesome buddy. 🙂
