Accidental friend - NOT!

A couple of times I have accidentally clicked "Send friend request" on Facebook to someone I either did not know or I knew but did not intend to be friends with. It is especially easy on my i-Phone if I try to zoom in on a picture or something close to the little button and my finger slips. An earlier one was my friend's pastor. He accepted it and so far I've just kept the friendship and trolled a bit if he posts something that looks interesting on my newsfeed.

The other day I accidentally clicked "Send Friend Request" on ex-WW's FB. We have many common friend including the kids so there is cross traffic at times. When it happened I swore under my breath and clicked it again and it looked like it cancelled the request.

Well last night I saw that she accepted it. This morning I unfriended her.

What I like is that I had and have no interest in looking to see who her friends are. I don't want to look at he pictures or read what she is posting.

I really. don't. care.

It felt so good that I could just relax and ignore her and unfriend her and not think anything else about it.

That is awesome. I would not want to see x's newsfeed either. He is a total attention whore and it would just be too nauseating.

yeah, FB kept suggesting XH and NW as friends as we have 'friends/family' in common. I took care of that by blocking them...when I figured it out.

Now I'm good with it.

Glad you got that over with...

I'm not sure how to block her but I don't know that I want to do that anyway. One thing we do well is when we post pictures of the kids we tag one of the kids with an FB account so that the other can see it. That is the only sharing that we do.

Yeah I had to block her from my FB so I wouldn't friend her or accidentally peek at her page. Oh and she can't peek at mine too. Oh and when D'day happened I told all her friends on face book she was a cheater too. I don't think she spends a lot of time on FB now too. Oh well. :)

gahurts, if you tag the kid, and she is friends with the kid she will see the photo. If the kid gives permission to add it to their photos. I can see my X is listed as the kids father. I do not see a pic or any of his responses to their status.

In fact I don't even know he posted unless the kid addresses him in her reply.

I can live with this.
