Googling Exes

People on Facebook are saying that it’s humanly impossible to avoid googling one’s exes. 

I’ve never done something like this, though, and had no idea it was such a popular pastime. For me, all of my exes, including my first husband, fell off the face of the earth the moment I lost interest in the relationship. 

I haved a depleted emotional range and am incapable of caring about former love interests. Maybe I should go sit in my tent some more.

  1. Gosh, what a creepy thing to do. Also I don’t think mine have names unusual enough to find easily. Furthermore, few people are as visible online as academics. Even if they’ve got a good job and all of that, it doesn’t mean there are a million Google hits for them. I’d Google anyone I was looking for, if I wanted to call them or something, but Googling an ex just for the heck of it sounds like spying or something. Maybe I am also unsettled because I fear what they may have become — one that I still know, because he’s in town, isn’t someone I’d get involved with today and the knowledge that he is my ex is freaky.

    I’m friends with one ex on FB. I’m not sure why anymore. I pretend he’s dead for reasons unrelated to the breakup. Once in a blue moon he’ll “like” something on my page or a comment I make. I have a surprising number of interests who have FB requests or LinkedIn requests I’m currently ignoring. It’s probably good that I detach, but a side effect is that I can’t care very much about maintaining relationships with people or starting them. Yes we had a lovely conversation. No, I don’t care one way or the other whether we speak again.

  3. People are “power-and-control” obsessive.
    They always feel like they “own” the lives of anybody they’ve ever had contact with in the course of their lifetime.
