I joined Facebook a few months ago to keep in touch with friends and family. So many people from my high school "friended" me and I feel bad rejecting someone, so I accepted people I recognized that I went to high school or college with. So this one guy asked to be my friend. My best friend dated him for 2 years, 1 year in high school and 1 year in college, then broke things off with him. She is not the type to stay friends with exes at all, so she didn''t speak to him after the break up. He then basically stalked her...he drove past her house all the time, came to her church and sat a few rows away from her, etc. until her father told him to stay away from her. Then he proceeded to get married, have a child and is now divorced. All this happened years ago...she broke up with him in 1999. Fast forward to a few days ago....I got a friend request from him. I haven''t heard much about him except through the grapevine that he got married/divorced several years ago. I hesitated on whether or not to accept the request, but felt bad so I did. On his page as the profile picture is a picture of my friend and him from 10 years ago! His arm is around her and by putting the picture up, he is portraying that they are a couple still.....she is now happily married to someone! I have been debating about what I should do....do I write him and tell him the picture is inappropriate since she is now married to someone else? Or do I leave it alone and have people think by this picture that they are still together? And do I tell my friend about it? I hate that I am worrying over something so stupid, but I wouldn''t want my ex to put up pictures of him and I from 10 years ago. I am beginning to think I shouldn''t have a facebook at all, too much trouble! Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks!
