Yes ignore. No reason to accept.

No, leave it alone and just ignore. It’s not heartless, it’s just facebook.

@weddingbee098:  Yes, ignore it because you’re not the type of person to like to keep in touch with exes.

He’s probably just going to get inappropriate again and is looking to creep on you!

yep, ignore.

 

You can block him too, which doesn’t send him a message or anything, but you just won’t show up in ANY search he does for you.  If you comment on the same thing on a friends picture, yours just won’t show up to him.  You will effectively be erased from his facebook existance.

You could also ‘accept’, but put him on SUCH a limited view, that he can only see your profile pic and that’s about it.

Ignore.  Accepting it (in my experience) will only make him think maybe he will have a chance.  His happiness is NOT your responsibility.  It sounds cold, but ultimately you’ll go crazy if you don’t recognize that fact.

Ignore. Pity alone isn’t enough reason to friend someone like that, considering the baggage.

I’ve blocked many people I have no longer cared to be in contact with, FB or otherwise.  I feel like this might be a good instance to do that.

@weddingbee098:  There’s no reason to be facebook friends with him, ignore the request.

Of course you should ignore it.  Don’t be guilted into something you don’t want to do, that will lead to problems, and that could potentially be something that could potentially hurt your lovely FI.

In fact tell your FI that you have been contacted and tell him you are going to refuse the request or that you are going to ignore the message.

Ignore.  

But what do you mean that you’re the only person who could better him?  If you truly believe that, you definitely should *not* talk to him ever again.  He’ll just get you sucked into his drama and you’ll spend your time trying to fix it.  Not good for anyone.
