I met my SO when I was 23. I was not expecting to meet anyone and was very skeptical of men/marriage/love/relationships/trust etc. I actually started to become “okay” with being single and was willing to accept that I might never get married or fall in love with someone…which seems silly now, since I was only 23!
Anyway, about 3 months into dating, my SO added me on facebook. After taking a quick surf through his photos (primarily consisting of half naked women, women and more women from his frat days and just in general being a “ladies man”), I defriended him. I had so many trust issues with men that I didn’t want to see any photos of him arm-in-arm or boob grabbing another girl from his college days.
If I didn’t defriend him, I would have made myself crazy and probably ended things out of fear of being hurt. 3 years later and he has taken down all of those incriminating photos, but I am just curious if anybody else has ever did “defriended” their SO at any point in time?!

We didnt get FB until after we started dating. I am not even sure we had myspace when we were in college. he graduated in ’02 and me in ’04 so it was a non-issue.

i have… my fiance and i met at school but started “talking” over facebook. he asked for my number and said he would text me the next day. when he still hadn’t texted me three days later i assumed he was just playing me or had lots of girls he was texting… so i unfriended him because i didn’t want to to deal with either of those scenerios. turns out it was neither, he just didn’t want to seem creepy and talk to me too much! but since he has been my SO i have not unfriended him. seems funny to think about it now! i’m glad you and your SO worked it out and figured out the facebook thing!

@Dell79: I think in the beginning of our relationship, I thought of “what if” scenarios in the event that we were to break up. I also didn’t want to see the debauchery that may have been to come………… but we never broke up. And he’s not that kind of guy anyway, I’ve learned. His gentlemanliness is what set him apart to me, and I snatched him up as a husband the instant the opportunity presented itself. 🙂

We met through a friend’s Facebook status so it’d be kind of awkward if I ever did.

No, haha, can’t say I have. FB wasn’t really a “thing” until a year or so after we were dating. Before that (and even before we were dating) we were friends on MYSPACE, haha. I was totally his top friend. Even before we were dating.
But I never de-friended him on either of those.

I did when we broke up for a few weeks. I was sort of on the fence at the time about going back to my ex, and although my boyfriend and I were still friends at the time, I didn’t want him to see something on my page that might pour salt in the new wound. Eventually I did add him back though, and came back to him. 🙂

Twice, after our “breaks” in our relationship. But at those times I could barely stand him. Thank goodness I got over those feelings quickly. lol

I’ve never defriended my Fiance. Things were a bit complicated for awhile and I shut off my facebook completely. But never defriended.

Darling Husband once removed our relationship status on his page when he was annoyed with me. He didn’t realize that all my friends would see a message on the newsfeed that ‘we were no longer in a relationship’. No actual defriending on FB.
I did block him on another site. He was pestering me to join and it was something I would have done, but didn’t have the time to figure it all out. I asked him if it matter what email I used – I didn’t want people to see it. He assured me they wouldn’t. I joined, added him and then from his page saw that my email was showing up. Out of annoyance I blocked him. I later figured out the email. Even after unblocking him there was some glitch and had to get customer service to connect us.
Phew! Sorry for being so rambly tonight.
