I am switching Fridays up a bit. I will do quotes some days and other topic as well.
You love your friends. At times however, you wonder what motivates them to do the things that they do.
This is all meant to be in fun – nothing to be taken seriously. This week’s topic is having a friend who is following all of your ex(s) on social media.
What Would You Do: If You Know That Your Friend Is Following Everyone You Have Ever Dated On Social Media?
Let’s say you have a friend. This friend has been there beside you through all of your relationships. Naturally she has met the guys you have dated. However, this person feels inclined to send follow requests on social media to all of the guys you have dated . Here’s the gotcha, you don’t even follow them or care to follow them. You find out by opening and reading the notification messages from your social media account showing you the list of people your friend is following and asking you if you would like to follow. You glance down the list and you see every person who has tongue kissed you in a corner (LOL). You may have even received a proposal or two – now following your friend on social media. Though this is not the point. Your problem is not with the men in your past – past being the operative word. The point is that she does – your nearest and dearest. How Awkward!?! Guys, it’s the same scenario. Your guy friend is following all of your ex(s). What the hell is this about?
Do you have a talk with this individual without being accusatory regarding this matter to understand why and then make a decision – as it seems that the fascination could be that she is attracted to them or would like to find out personal information about your relationships? Do you let it slide, because it is someone from your past and it just isn’t that deep? Or, do you end the friendship because it’s not a friendly or trustworthy thing to do?
I am honestly stumped on this one. It’s anyone’s guess. Do what you feel is best. Though for quiz purposes, the best answer would be to – have a talk without being accusatory with this individual about this matter to understand why and then make a decision – as it seems that the fascination could be that she is attracted to them, would like to find out personal information about your relationships, or honestly does not know her boundaries.
Never just write a friend out of your life without having an open, honest and respectful dialogue first. You could be jumping to conclusions and alienate a friend for nothing.

Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend.
