I have him as a friend, but we don't even have contact. I tend to forget he is on there.

I've only had one ex and she unfriended me a long time ago.

When an ex still wants you as a "friend" after, you have to wonder why.

I am friends with multiple ex's on facebook. It's not an issue at all with my current relationship because we talk about everything and I am not going to cheat or anything and that's already known.

Besides, one of those ex's is one of my best friends, the mother of 2 kids I call my own as well, and if he had an issue with it, we'd have problems!

I always say Ex's are Ex's for a reason! I try to avoid any kind of contact with mine. I've had an Ex message me asking a strange question about what I use to whiten my teeth! Lol. But other than that, I made it very clear that I wanted no "friendship". It's not a good idea. It sounds nice and the whole idea of being in a relationship and staying friends with Ex's sounds so good to most people, but it's truly a recipe for disaster. Things won't always go wrong, but it's far, far too easy and why risk unecessary strain on a relationship? I can't think of many reasons to have regular friendly contact with an EX while you're in a relationship... not many reasons that would be considered faithful anyways.

I guess having an EX on your friends list, but never talking to them isn't horrible? I mean if you're with someone I don't see much of a reason for doing that, but whatever. I just think having regular friendly contact with an ex can't be truly innocent and it's kind of a tiny bit betraying... in most cases anyway.

What it boils down to is no, I wouldn't think it's a good idea at all.

I am friends with the guy who popped my cherry, another guy I did in high school, two guys who realllllllly wanted to do me in high school and the guy I was engaged to before it failed and then I met my husband. Husband knows...no issues at all. Do two of the four still want to knock boots with me? Hell yes. Lol. Again hubby knows and no issue. Its a long way from the internet to bedroom.

I no longer have a facebook, but I used to be friends with ex hookups, which caused problems.

I am with an ex I dated for a month about 4 or 5 years ago. So he wasn't a serious relationship and it doesn't cause any problems with my current relationship.

No. I deleted and blocked one because he kept stalking me on there and on a few other sites. I don't have any exes on there now and would not add them as friends.

Hard to vote. Yes, I'm friends with an ex-lover on FB. No, it isn't causing any problems in my relationship. He was with me a long time ago, we've both moved on and are happy just being friends. We're all adults.

Yes, I am friends with them. They don't cause any issues as I no longer 'play for their team'. I have one who won't get the hint though, despite having a girlfriend.

My last ex and I haven't spoken since I dropped her stuff off at her dorm. Otherwise, there're only two ex's I'm intentionally not in contact with on FB.

My ex husband is on my friends list. We have kids together so I put pics up on there of the kids and he keeps up with what they are dooing that way. Doesn't bother current bf.

I voted "Other" because I'm only friends on Facebook with exes who "don't matter" i.e. high school boyfriends and ones I dated when I was even younger than that. They don't cause problems. I've only had one serious boyfriend besides mine now and I'm not friends with him. I hate him.

I am friends with an ex on facebook, and it isn't weird because there are absolutely no lingering feelings, and we rarely talk. I would only have a problem with it if there were lingering feelings, or an abnormal amount of contact.

I am single presently, and still FB friends with a guy I have a fling with. It bugs me to see him on the site since he blew me off, but I feel like a defriend might make things weird...blerg.

I have one ex, he was terrible. I made sure to block him so he cannot snoop on me and I cannot see him.

My fiancee is friends with a lot of women. Some exes, some he wanted to do stuff with but was only friends.

It took me a while to be okay with it. I figure he's humping my leg and sleeping in my bed every night what do I have to worry about?

I am friends with one of my exes, friends with one guy that wanted to date me when I was a teenager, and friends with one that would love the chance to date me now, but it doesn't cause problems.

My oldest ex and I are friends, but none of the others. I usually stay friends with them for a little while after the relationship has ended and then find it's too challenging to keep them around. Either I'm too nostalgic for them or I become paranoid that they're just using FB to stalk me.
