My boyfriend is still friends with his ex girlfriend on facebook
Things had been great between us. Two things happened when I got here, however, which have me thinking. First, when I arrived I was very ill with a horrible cold. My boyfriend was also sick with food poisoning but he avoided me physically. I was hurt but understood. Second, a few days ago while he was on skype with his dad, a text-message came to him on the phone.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: My Boyfriend Still Keeps His Ex On Instagram And Facebook. I'm Uncomfortable.

Yesterday he and her reconnected on Facebook, though I don't know who friended whom. He doesn't know I know who she is, but he has spoken about her in passing and only on two occasions when we first started.
I put two and two together and knew that was her on the screen. Things have been good with us, but I can't help but be worried. Are there still feelings between them, if not could they evolve? I kinda confronted him indirectly about this, asking him in a text if he was talking to other ladies.
This is not completely out of the blue since last night he was curiously asking me about meeting up with an old classmate of mine for coffee. Anyway, I prefer her to be out of the picture completely. I am not friends with my exes. I have already accepted the fact he has an ex wife short-lived marriage of long long ago , but he's not in anyway tied to her on social media or keeping tabs and hanging out with her. A recent girlfriend is another story somehow How do I deal with the situation when he doesn't know that i know?
Am I just supposed to trust that he will protect our relationship? Delete Report Edit Lock Reported. Respond to Anonymous:.

I'm with you. I'm not friends with my ex's. Both I and my husband are child free. So not only do I not have to tolerate baby mamas, I also don't have to tolerate those so called well meaning types who try to use the kids to stay in touch with the ex. While I share your concern, maybe you can just observe for now.
Since he doesn't know that you know, he can't use your initial silence as an excuse to assume your acceptance. See what their behavior is like on FB and what his behavior towards you is like in real life. If he were getting sucked in, chances are that he will become more distant towards you. Some people do out themselves on FB. During the first year of dating with my husband, I figured out that he was still seeing the just a friend ex because on the occasion that he would go out to a concert without me, he would mention it on his wall and she would "like" it.
I even noticed once that he grouped a couple of concerts together -- one that he and I went to -- and she "liked" that entry as well. I guess this woman wanted me to know that they were seeing each other. I guess I'm suggesting the wait and see approach. But these days, with so many relationships starting or restarting with the help of social media. And now that "emotional affairs" are identified to be potentially equally as damaging as a physical affair, I would never suggest to anyone that they have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Lovebird Send a private message. If you are his friend on fb and so is she, you'll see his responses to her posts and hers to his PMs are different but if you don't trust him there is an issue that needs to be talked about, openly and calmly.
My bf and I are both friends with our exs on fb and we're both totally ok with that. We are entirely honest with each other about our feelings, sex life, family members, the future and so on.
Just because you didn't get on well enough with your exs to keep in touch doesn't mean that others can't, and personally there is no chance I'd get back with any of mine albeit I still care about them and want to know how they're doing. I actually think it's quite nice that my lovely man still cares about women he has been attached to, his caring side is very attractive to me and I benefit from it a great deal.
Fwiw I'm a jealous type who'd bitch slap a chick if she got all over my guy, but I'm rational enough to understand that failed relationships usually turn into friendships going nowhere in the romance stakes. You have been with him for 3 years if he wanted to be with her she would not be an ex.
You should trust him after 3 years of being together. He is your bf so if this bothers you so much just ask him why he added her Ask a New Question expand.

My boyfriend just friended his ex on Facebook--should I be worried?
I know exactly who I am and exactly what I want in life in general and in love in particular. I should be able to feel secure in my own relationship, but I never will if the past is constantly looming over our heads. Not a single one.
Most of us have looked up an old flame on Facebook. And while it may seem frivolous or harmless to peer through these windows that social media grants you, it can cause you to let your past interfere with your present, which can pose a risk to your relationship. Most couples will find it helpful to set some boundaries for their time on Facebook and other social media. Facebook can be addictive and the advent of smartphones has meant some people find it difficult to log out.
Help, My Boyfriend Is Facebook Friends With His Ex
I recently read a post from a woman who had given her boyfriend an ultimatum after he refused to delete his ex — and the photos they shared together — from his social media accounts. I was baffled. I have my ex on social media. Removing him from my online life just was not part of the process for me. It never struck me as being weird — not even after starting a new relationship. And he was fine with it. Even to this day, five-and-a-half years on from my ex, the photos we shared together are still buried deep somewhere in a Facebook photo album. And the same goes for my current partner. And, at the end of the day, I am his current girlfriend — if he was meant to be with any of his exes, he would be.
