Facebook and my ex breaking his hiatus on it

I don't do a whole lot on my Facebook account. I have moved around over the years, so it's easy to keep in touch with people. I wish friends happy birthday, check in here and there, and that's it.

The ex has a Facebook account. He stopped using it back in 2017. Unfortunately, I got a notification that he has posted two new photos.

The photos aren't exciting. However, they either have some sort of hidden meaning or he's simply ready to be social again.

His profile pic is a car from the 70's. What's interesting is that the licence plate is from Texas. It's where we last were together before he broke up with me.

His cover photo is a lighthouse. It's a beacon of light when it's foggy. Maybe he is seeing the light. I also love lighthouses, but I don't know if he knows that I do.

Perhaps I'm reading into this photos more than I should. It's just weird that he has resurrected his Facebook account after a four-year hiatus.

I have removed him as a contact on Skype. Perhaps it's time to do the same on Facebook.


  1. Perhaps you're right to remove him as a contact if you don't wish to give yourself more angst. When pics of my ex irritated me, and in fact, those of his brother as well, I decided that for my own sanity I would delete them from my life. It turns out that after my dad's passing the ex reappeared in a more mature more mellow form and we've managed to morph into a new friendship now that's much better for my mental state.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experiences with me, Fondles. I am glad that you and your ex have formed a healthy friendship.

      My ex hasn't posted anything for a week, so maybe I'll just monitor things. If he posts so often that it annoys and upsets me, I'll get rid of him from Facebook. Here's hoping that he'll turn out to be a nicer human being down the road.

  2. You go with what your intuition tells you, because it is likely 100% spot on :)

    1. That's true. I'll see whether he posts more. If he does, he's gone as a Facebook contact.
