Yeah, when I type in a specific letter ,which happens to be the first letter of my ex-boyfriend’s name, he pops up even though I have declined his ridiculous friend requests about a million times.

You’ve got NOTHING to worry about!

I don’t think it’s anything to worry about at all.   I go on facebook and I look at my exes’ pages more often than I’d like to admit (about once or twice a month) not because I’m attracted to them, or because I’m unhappy with Fiance. I’m just actually curious about what they are doing wit htheir lives now, how they’re doing, that sort of thing.

I think it’s pretty normal to facecreep on ex’s. It might bother me, but it really can mean and probably does mean butt all.

I wouldn’t read too much into it– my ex-boyfriend’s now wife always comes up first (even before my friends). We only had one mutual friend in common (him) and I only had been on her page once. What caused it to happen were my friends were searching for information on her. That was enough to cause it.

Similarly, my professors show up all of the time and we have no mutual friends in common. They just use their creepiness to figure out that I should know them.

I agree with PPs saying it may just be mutual friends that brings her name up.  My FI’s ex-gf shows up all the time as a person I might know, because of this.

@mattsgirl813:  Actually, facebook isn’t like a google search. Sometimes the first person to pop up in my searches is someone that facebook thinks I probably know, weather I’ve interracted with them/their page prior to that or not.

WHen I put in C in my facebook search the first person to pop up is my ex boyfriend and not Fiance. I’ve never actually gone to his page but we have so many of the same friends he pops up first.

It doesn’t mean that he was looking at her page.


If it upsets you then you should talk to him about it. I’ve been on FIs facebook page lots because he always forgets to log out when he uses my computer. I don’t think your Fiance will be upset with you, just explain exactly how it happened and how it made you feel. Maybe he will even offer to block her, though I don’t think you should tell him to do thta because then it would seem that you don’t trust him.

Tsk, Facebook… Don’t ever base anything in your relationship on what you see on FB.

People freak out over things, make life-changing decisions and create drama spanning whole family trees – and all over few publicly displayed misinterpreted words or SW functionality that doesn’t work as one expected…

I am not saying FB is evil. I am saying you have to be careful with ANY information you find on internet ANYWHERE.

As multiple PPs already wrote: the search engine of FB doesn’t work with past visits only. There are shared friends, interests, schools, same pages you visited… All this and more is taken into account and, frankly, often ends up as a complete nonsense.

And even if he really went and looked at her profile (which I seriously doubt) – how can you say it was not to laugh at her ridiculous updates? 😉
