    Nope
    Totally had enough of that
    No interest in finding out more

    I'm going to have to agree with MacDawg on this one.

    I would think all the googling would happen under the covers not after the split.:D

    All mine are on my Facebook anyways. It's easy to keep track when you've only been out with a few folk.

    Should there be a distinction made between ex-girlfriend and ex-wife?
    Regardless, I have no interest in keeping up with the past

    I Facebook stalk one of them only because I think she is pregnant. Otherwise, no, I'm not a creeper to my exs.

    Edit: Haha- I know it is not my baby. It's been 2 years since I've been with her.

    May want to rethink this ... you are a creeper to your ex as you're admitting to stalking her because she may be pregnant. Man up and ask her. :rolleyes:


    I've never googled an ex myself and personally haven't found a desire to do so.

    I did once, with someone I had a hard time letting go of. Nothing turned up though, which is probably for the better.

    Haha sorry. I guess i should have rephrase it. I know it is not my baby. We ended on rough terms, and she would take the question as "See, I told you so. Now look what you have to deal with. You slut." Yeah, it is complicated.

    I keep up with the ones I'm still friends with via Facebook. The ones I'm not still friends with, nope.

    Why bother with all the Googling? It's much easier to set up a Google Web Alert -- it'll automatically email you whenever her/his name appears online. You can set it for the web, news, and blogs! That way you feel like much less of a stalker. :eek:

    I do everything I can to get my ex-wife of 30 years OUT of my mind and nightmares
    Why would I want a constant email alert about her

    Damn
    Just
    Damn

    Yeah the rephrase doesn't help matters here buddy. ;) If it's not your baby then why the heck do you care?

    Here's the deal. We all have at least one ex. They're likely your ex for good reason. Move on with whatever you can move on with and just be done with it. Hold them in your heart if that's what you want and need but don't become a weirdo googling them. That likely leads to other things like driving outside their house or walking their dog when they're not home. It's all creepy and I'd like to think people are better than that.

    I am asking as I recently received an email from an ex (25 years ex) and was kind of curious to see how things worked out for her. Jessica, you are correct in saying we are ex for a reason and they are damn fine reasons. I'll leave it as a mystery. Best let sleeping dogs lie.

    No, and why would I do that?

    *Hypnotizes MacDawg* On the count of three you forget you ever had an ex... 1.. 2... it's really up to you :)

    +1000. Exactly what I was thinking when I saw this thread title. I'm still trying to forget that nightmare.

    I've had occasional idle curiosity but I wouldn't want to establish any contact, that's for sure. Even though I left on fairly good terms with all my exs.

    It landed me in prison for 2 years. So I don't do that type of stuff anymore.

    :D
