Has anyone googled their ex?

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.

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.

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:

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.

I am your ex-wife MacDawg I've been stalking you on Macrumors for years under this pseudonym.
Ha!
My ex-wife who wrote on my 2 day old iMac screen with a ballpoint pen! :mad:

I don't think so... she doesn't even know how to log in to a computer

Damn
Now she is back in my mind again

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.
