Curious About Old Flames On Facebook

Ken Tucci

I’m curious as to why people make the mistake of getting in touch with an old boyfriend/girlfriend on Facebook?  – Katie, Gardner

Ah…the age of social networking where “search” can turn up people from your past.

Of course there’s a Facebook page called “Why do people want to be friends with their ex even after they break up?”

Why look?  Curiosity, fantasy, boredom. 

Looking is one thing, friending is another.

Have you done it?  Why? How did it work out?  Pitfalls?  Benefits?  Give us the good, bad and ugly.
