    Default Ex's new gf adding you on FB

    So my ex and I split approx 5 years ago. He has recently got a new gf, who when he started the relationship on FB I questioned him next time I saw him face to face. Turns out he had been seeing her a year! Spending time with my son for a year and I had no idea she even existed! She has now moved in. After supposedly now over a year of dating I met with them briefly yesterday at the shopping centre to catch up as our son was sick. He is 11 years her senior! My son likes her and my ex seems happy so I'm content with all that all round apart from not telling me sooner as we are still very good friends! She is the first gf since me, so it's a bit for me to get my head around just yet! But this morning she added me on FB, awkward and too early?? Or am I being silly?

    I told him today she had requested me, he's reply was "she adds everyone" but I can't help feel she just wants to do some FB stalking rather than genuinely being friends for my sons sake

    A bit awkward.

    Good that she seems to be trying to be nice (hopefully!) but honestly I'd feel uncomfortable if I was in your shoes.

    I think it's a bit awkward, but definitely not "too soon." It's been 5 years! lol.

    She might be eager for friends or something... I dunno. Or wants to suss you out. Regardless, you don't owe it to anyone to add her... I'd just leave it sitting there until you decided whether it's better to add or decline... :P

    no way I would add my ex's wife...we are civil and get along and have each others mobile number...but, fb is my space where i am just me and i would not want to risk any "things being taken the wrong way"...not when we all get on well now!

    Maybe restricted is the way to go, because now I feel bad because she would know I'm stewing on it to accept or not! Maybe it's her immaturity at its best adding someone she barely knows
