I agree. I am so very angry that she seems to be living the high life now that she 'got rid' of my WH. She had a courthouse wedding and is married to a guy who "is her best friend" (even though they only knew each other for like 3 or 4 months before getting married) and is taking OC as his own and is proud of it. This guy helped her throughout most of her pregnancy and now she's got this guy to help her take care of the baby (during all of which for me, my WH was in the A). She also posted about getting a job interview for a job "that the starting pay would be more than she has ever made in her life".
I tell myself that she is so horribly angry, ugly, and unhappy inside...but most of the time that doesn't help me feel better.
Even though I haven't looked at even a picture of her since then, I am still outraged at all of the tidbits that I gleaned before I blocked her. I guess I just don't have to worry about having more things to fuel my anger.
Logically I know most people only put the good stuff on FB and for OPs, they make sure to lay it on extra thick because they want to make it appear like they are happy. I just think of her imagining me looking at her stuff and crying about how happy she is and her laughing at the thought. This also helps me not check!

I have been a good a girl and only looked like 3 times in the past year.
Wow. If the OW from my situation had a FB, I believe I would have checked it a lot more than that, probably even now, 7 years later! And I would not apologize or call myself bad for it. I actually believe in the statement, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." Yes, I would enjoy having FB as some window into her life, but she is not on there so I don't have that pleasure.
But nothing she could post would bother me. I would take more pleasure in knowing she is miserable, than that she is happy, but I would not lose sleep over it either way.
People say FB is fake but I don't see it as that way for everyone. I do have a FB page and don't consider it fake even though I choose to only share 99% positive things, and pictures of smiling, happy people, including myself. I don't worry about privacy settings because before I post anything on there, I ask myself: "Is there anybody out there whom I would not want to see this?" If the answer is yes, I don't post it, at all. Because I know others might have a "friend" that gives them access from their site and I also believe that if they want to see our page badly enough, they will find a way.
I secretly have hoped the whore would look at my page (but I don't think she owns a computer and H said she didn't know how to turn them on and has no interest in learning, and I sort of think it is true, but anyway....)
There are no lies on my page even though I have chosen to share more positive aspects of my life, and few negative. The happy smiling people and pictures of occasions and events are all very real.
